The success of the book drive held by the Christian Church of Clarendon Hills was unprecedented! Nearly 2000 books were donated and most of them were either new or like new. Literally, only a handful were not appropriate for our use. Their generosity blew us away!!!

THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS!!
In the past month we have received generous donations (in various forms) from supporters. Some of our most recent are -
The Christian Church of Clarendon Hills for another successful book drive (the third annual). They held the first book drive for us even before we were Big Rig Books!!!
Author U.S. Marine Sr. for donating 2000 copies of his latest novel, The CIA Psychic Teens Book 2!!! That's a lot of books, but we have homes for them!
Really Big News...
Thanks to one of our biggest friends and supporters, Joan Metz, we are now a charity on Amazon.com. If someone wants to support us financially, they can buy from smile.amazon.com, just as they would normally on Amazon.com. It is easy. Just choose Haulin' For Humanity (BIg Rig Books' parent organization), as your preferred charity. Then Amazon.com will give us .05% of whatever you purchase-at no extra cost to you!!! How awesome is that! Please tell your friends and family (Facebook is a great way). We need all the support we can get to keep the Big Rig filled with children's books.
Our good friend and supporter, Tiffany Cruickshank, is hosting "Make A Difference Mondays" at her store in Downers Grove, Peak Running. If you donate a book to Big Rig Books and make a purchase, she will give us 10% of the sale. It's a win/win. It is also a win for her customers because she has a unique selection of performance running shoes that not many other stores carry. PLUS, she is a wealth of knowledge regarding running and fitness.
