Now that U.S. tax season is at an end, you might be fortunate to have a few extra dollars. If you’re looking for a way to put that money to good use, why not try a bookish charity? It can be overwhelming to pick one that aligns with your goals, though. There are a lot out there! (And you can find many of them at Charity Navigator, which rates over 9,000 charities based primarily on their “Financial Health and and their Accountability and Transparency.”) We’ve narrowed it down to five bookish charities. All of the charities on the other side of this quiz have received at least three out of four possible stars from Charity Navigator.
