1. Goodreads Give Books

Last week we were happy to announce that First Book joined forces with Goodreads, one of the largest online communities of readers, to bring more books to more children this summer.

This summer the Goodreads community will be reading ‘A Visit from the Goon Squad’, by Jennifer Egan, to kick off their new Goodreads Book Club. For every 10 members of the Goodreads community who add this title to their shelves on the site, Goodreads will donate 1 book to kids in need through First Book.

We are happy to announce that the participant count is now at 32,613, closing in on 33,000. We would love to get to the 40,000 mark so that we can donate 4,000 books to kids in need. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to help First Book get books to kids, this is it! Goodreads members simply have to add the book to any shelf. (For folks who are new to Goodreads, registration is easy, quick, and completely free.)

Join the the book club and help us get books to kids!

2. Goodreads Has Millions of Readers and First Book Has Millions of Books … Hmmm …

Goodreads Book Club to Benefit First BookWe’re excited to announce that First Book has joined forces with Goodreads, one of the largest online communities of readers, to bring more books to more children this summer.

This summer the Goodreads community will be reading ‘A Visit from the Goon Squad’, by Jennifer Egan, to kick off their new Goodreads Book Club. (It’s an incredible book; it was recently awarded both the Pulitzer Prize for Literature and the National Book Critics Circle Award).

For every 10,000 members of the Goodreads community who add this title to their shelves on the site, Goodreads will donate 1,000 books to kids in need through First Book. That may sound like a lot of people, but it turns out there are a whole bunch of people on Goodreads. 25,000 people have already added this title, so we’re up to 2,000 donated books right out of the gate. Woot!

But we’d love to get that number much, much higher, so if you’re on Goodreads, please read (and add) ‘A Visit from the Goon Squad’, and see what all the richly-deserved fuss is about. And if you’re not on Goodreads, go sign up! It’s free and it’s a huge, interesting community of people who love books. Plus there are quite a few First Book staffers on there already, and we’d love to talk about our favorite books with you.
