Sustainable Reading

Since I am probably going to be blogging about a lot of books I am reading, I thought I'd tell everyone about a site I've been using. Eco-Libris is a way you can "balance" out the books that you buy. You purchase book credits for $1 each. For every book credit, Eco-Libris plants a tree and sends you a sticker (made from recycled paper!) for your book. I have been adding the stickers to books I purchase (new or used) including the many books that I am giving for Christmas gifts this year.

Thanks for mentioning Eco-Libris!

I would also like to recommend to those who are looking for green books that are also great gifts to check out our weekly green guide for book lovers on our blog.
Here's a link to the recommendations we had so far - http://www.ecolibris.net/holiday_guide.asp

Happy Holidays,
