Find inspiration from our customers' stories and discover new ways to use wholesale books in bulk.

When you think of the word "hero", chances are you don't automatically associate it with books or reading. As the web's leading book wholesaler, we're here to change that.

Our amazing customers inspire us every day with the unique and creative ways that they use the books they order in bulk. From large corporations looking to connect with their employees and improve workplace culture to educational institutions that inspire children to non-profit organizations that change our world for the better, YOU, our customers, are true heroes to us, and we want others to learn from you and to be inspired!

At Bulk Bookstore, we're all about connecting - not just to the company or organization you represent, but to you as an individual. As a family-owned business in Portland, Oregon, we're much more than a bulk book website with a shopping cart... we're real people with a passion for books and the unique possibilities that each turn of the page holds. Every day, we hear of another way that books made a difference and, every day, we say to ourselves, "wouldn't it be amazing if we could share these stories with all of our customers?". So, we did... on this page...just for YOU!

So tell us, where will the wholesale books you order be going? To an event, a school, a shelter, a convention? Who will the discount books you order online benefit? What is the message behind the title you selected? We want to get to know YOU as you, and celebrate your admirable leadership efforts.

With millions of book titles available from big thinkers, thought-leaders, famous names and publishers worldwide, the possible uses for bulk books are endless. From school teachers to CEOs, religious leaders to small business owners, we want to hear your stories. From the classroom to the corporate office, a small gathering to a big promotional event, we have books to fit every theme, every audience and every budget.

By sharing how buying bestselling books has positively affected your organization, your community or those you care about, you are paving the way for others to do the same. Our hope is that these stories not only bring you joy to read, but open your eyes to new uses, possibilities and benefits that only books can provide.

Hopefully, these heroic case studies put a smile on your face.

Let's inspire each other!
