How have I not seen this website before? We Give Books! It’s a website where students can read books online, while also giving books to those who are less fortunate.
Here’s how it works – you go there, read books, enter your e-mail address (I have a “junk account” for such things), enjoy the book, and know that you’re helping others get free books. They have given almost 1,000,000 books away! CRAZY!
You can choose which campaign your reading supports.
The one drawback I’ve seen in my limited use is that it sometimes takes a few seconds for the pages to load.
But look at all of the different topics available! (The list on the right in red.)
You can search through books by topic or age! There are currently 187 books! They don’t have much for older students (yet!), but they do have tabs for ages 11-13 and Teens – so that leads me to believe they’ll be adding more. =)
What are you waiting for? Let your students or children get online and start reading. All they have to do is click on the arrows, surf around a bit, and enjoy!
Have you heard of this site before? Are there any drawbacks I don’t know about?
