Make EVERY day Buy Nothing Day. Do your holiday gift shopping at Jersey City Free Books!

Can’t figure out what to buy those guys and gals who already have everything? Well, don’t buy them anything; give them a free book! Then instead of paying for yet another unwanted sweater, you can use the money that you saved to make donations to charity in the names of your friends and relatives.

At Jersey City Free Books you won’t have to stand in line at the cash register. You can relax and take as much time as you like to choose titles that will give all the names on your list many hours of reading pleasure. You can still gift wrap the books so to be able to put something more than just an envelope under the tree. Plus, the note of thanks and explanation from the charity certainly will communicate the true meaning of the season better than any card.
