We believe in the power of knowledge. So our goal is to help those who supply it and share it with those who crave it. Which is why every action we take, and every book purchase you make helps fund it.

We are driven to provide customers with a highly-valued experience, and one that allows them to align their actions with their values. We want to be their favorite marketplace and their favorite partner, so we incorporate their input into everything we do.

People Matter
We seek out talented people who work hard and invest in them. We respect each individual, reward achievement, and celebrate team success.

Do The Right Thing
We strive to do the right thing at all times, with all people and all issues.

Foster Innovation
We look for new ideas and bold moves while we embrace and create change.

Passion for Literacy
We are committed to the cause of literacy. Every person should have the chance to achieve their potential and participate fully in society.
