Buying books is always a good thing, no doubt about it. And it’s even better when buying books means donating to a really important cause. Waterstones’ Buy Books for Syria campaign is raising one million pounds for Oxfam’s Syria Crisis Appeal.

Waterstones' Buy Books for Syria

An amazing and extensive selection of books have been donated by their publishers, and 100% of the RRP will help Syrian refugees. And these are books you’ll really want to buy too, so there’s no token effort involved. Not sure what to buy? You can’t go wrong with a page-turning bestseller – how about David Nicholls’ One Day, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson or perhaps We Need To Talk About Kevin? There are prize-winners too – Hillary Mantel’s Wolf Hall or Karen Joy Fowler’s We are All Completely Beside Ourselves for starters…

Your bookshelves will thank you for one of the classics – Dracula, Great Expectations or the Picture of Dorian Gray, maybe? And every woman needs a copy of Caitlin Moran’s How To Be A Woman – a book to read, reread and give to friends, family and everyone you know. With the full cover price of all these titles helping Syrian refugees, there’s never been a better time to get stuck into a good book!
