These beautiful book-themed socks have a special meaning to John and John's Crazy Socks Team. John has struck up a relationship with President George H. W. Bush and the former President wore these socks during the services for his wife, Barbara Bush, as a tribute to his wife's commitment to literacy programs. At Mr.Bush's request, we sent these Socks (as well as the men’s version) to the Bush family who wore them at the service to honor Mrs. Bush.  We were so honored and humbled to help the family.

Mrs. Bush had long promoted family literacy and had raised over $100 million for the cause. To honor Mrs. Bush, we will donate 100 percent of the profits from each pair of these socks to the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation.

Here is what the Bush family spokesperson said: To honor his wife of 73 years and her commitment to family literacy, for which she raised over $110 million over the course of over 30 years, will be wearing a pair of socks festooned with books at today’s funeral service for former First Lady Barbara Bush.

Designed by the creative minds at ModSocks, they come in black and heather blue. There is also a Library Socks for Literacy Men’s Crew. So support the cause and get yourself a pair of these Library Socks for Literacy (a.k.a. Bibliophile)  Knee High Socksor give them to your friend who loves books more than anything.

Best company ever!

I ordered a pair of literary socks and they arrived in just a few days. They are well-made, comfortable, soft and fit perfectly. Seeing John’s hand-written nite made my day and my kids were thrilled there was a packet of Skittles as a bonus! I love this company and fully plan to support them again in the future.

Love love love

I bought these as a gift for my daughter. She is now an assistant elementary school principal, but was the reading specialist for many years. Reading and literacy are her passion, so these socks fit her perfectly. Love John and Mark too.

I have bought many John's Crazy Socks, and love every one. These socks were a gift. The recipient liked them so much, she posted a picture on Facebook.
