Our History, 1998 to today

ADLE International was founded in Portland, OR on the spring of 1998.

Founded by then APEC Youth Representative, Alex Esguerra our vision is to offer affordability of books even to limited income earners. Our mission is mentoring future business youth leaders to become small business sustaining entrepreneurs.

Our flagship online store http://www.affordable-booksonline.com paved the way in duplicating our online presence while creating different categories where we can focused in offerring books with our vision.

Today, powered by majority of our stores still encapsulates our philanthropy through our blogs and social media interactions on the different ordeals we face on lack of capital, current events, social issues, equality and discrimination.

We encourage our visitors to share any feedbacks, wants and comments they have so we can further enhance the direction we are conducting our business.
