About GoneReading

GoneReading markets a unique collection of gifts for readers and book lovers – what we call brilliant products for the reading lifestyle – many of which can only be found on this site at GoneReading.com.  If you love to read, you’re going to love GoneReading.

We don’t sell books.  Rather, we sell products that enhance your reading life.  From functional reading accessories to bookish home décor, GoneReading improves the quality of your reading experience and surrounds you with delightful bookish-ness you won’t find elsewhere.

Unlike other shopping sites, GoneReading was founded specifically to spread the magic of reading in the developing world.  That’s why we’ve pledged 100% of after-tax profits to fund reading related charities, especially the work of our good friends at READ Global and Ethiopia Reads.

Although we have a particular fondness for the printed book, GoneReading supports all types of reading formats, including e-readers, tablets, printed books, newspapers and magazines.  We believe that access to great writing – regardless of the format in which it is consumed is what really matters most.

Founded in 2011 by marketing executive Brad Wirz and his wife Eileen, GoneReading leverages the power of commerce to create real change in the developing world.
