Random House, The Footpath Library, and BMF have joined forces to re-gift the gift of reading to homeless and disadvantaged Australians. The Mailbooks for Good project is simple: buy a book, read it, and post it to a charity for free. Each book features a cleverly designed dust jacket which transforms into a pre-paid, pre-addressed parcel once the book is turned inside-out.

The Footpath Library charity will then post your pre-loved book to an Australian in need. It’s good Karma, folks! After all, when you share a book, you’re sharing more than just pages of paper and ink. You’re sharing the opportunity to learn, discover and feel cared for. Check out the current range of titles available at Gleebooks bookstores in Sydney, Australia.
