THE STORY:

TWR’s Mission

Things We Read promotes reading by giving you access to books that matter, recommended by people that matter to you. Through donations, we provide these books to America’s sons and daughters, both overseas and in our communities in need.

About TWR

Things We Read was founded by a group of army officers while they were deployed to Iraq in 2011. The group got the book recommendations of famous and interesting people for their soldiers, and provided the books free to their platoons, as a good way to relax during the stressful times overseas.

What Getting Involved Will Accomplish

  • Improve Soldier quality of life through encouraging a lifetime pursuit of knowledge
  • Open free book collections in participating military communities
  • Allow TWR to host professional development speaking series
  • Help build reading centers in our wounded warrior hospitals
