It’s time to celebrate Booksgiving Day!

Attention kids and parents – it’s time to celebrate your favorite Half Price Books holiday, Booksgiving Day!

Now in its fourth year, we here at Half Price Books celebrate Booksgiving Day with a special storytime. BUT, the best part is, every child who attends will receive a FREE new children’s picture book to take home, while supplies last. (Who doesn’t love free books?!)

And this year, for every book purchased online at HPB.com on Booksgiving Day, we’ll donate a book to the nonprofit organization, Feed The Children. All books donated on Booksgiving Day are part of the Half Price Books Million Book Donation Project, which donated more than 1.6 million books to non-profit organizations and schools in 2015.

So stop by your local HPB on Saturday, November 19 at 2 p.m. local time to celebrate Booksgiving Day with your fellow booklovers, and don’t forget to shop online, too. Hope to see you there!

Check out photos from previous Booksgiving Day celebrations!

Celebrate National Literacy Month with Half Price Books

Here at Half Price Books, we celebrate reading year round, but September is special – it’s National Literacy Month!

I can hardly remember a time when I couldn’t read, so it’s easy to forget that there are millions of adults across the country who cannot read, and if those adults have children, they have a 72% chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves.

Here in Dallas, I’m proud to be a member of the board of directors for Literacy Instruction for Texas (LIFT) to help them reach their goal of bending the trend and teaching adults to read.
