Library Socks for Literacy (a.k.a. Bibliophile Socks)
These are charity socks with 100% of the profit from each pair donated to the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation.
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 women’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 President Bush's spokesperson tweeted about these socks:
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.
