Support Our Efforts to Buy Books for Kids


  • The 2nd Annual Ides of March Madness Charity Book Reading Tournament is in progress. Staff and literature-reading superstars from The King’s English booksellers (our local All Star book shop) are reading sixteen of last year’s best books in head-to-head matchups and declaring winners which then advance through the matches. Only two will make the final round, and one will be crowned the Ides Champ.

  • “Bet” on your pick to win the tournament(donate) by clicking through the link on the left side of this page (“BET THE FARM”) or by dropping in The King’s English. Donate $20 or more and be eligible to win fresh, new copies of the titles in the tournament. Choose the winning book and be eligible to win a complete set of this year’s competition titles.

  • 100 percent of your donation goes to Book Wagon and will be used to buy books for needy kids in Salt Lake City.
