Prisoners Literature Project

NEW: support PLP by buying books for yourself!

September 2015  |  Published in Latest News, New Ways To Donate

powellsYou can now support an independent book dealer — and the Prisoners Literature Project, too!

The PLP has signed up with famed Portland-based bookstore Powell’s and their online store!  We now get a portion of proceeds for every book you buy using our affiliate link.

There’s really not a lot more to it than that: Just buy any book online via the Powell’s link on this page, and the PLP will receive a portion of the proceeds!

We’ll be trialing this method of getting additional funding for the PLP over the next few months.  So don’t fight the feeling:  use the search box below, which links directly to the bookstore’s site and will credit us.  Try it out:

We’ve found some notable titles among Powell’s current bestsellers.  Just click through and order any of the titles in question — it means money back to the PLP:

 

Thanks!  We hope you’ll come back here (or the donate page) to use the affiliate link in the future.
