Thursday, October 2, 2008 Green Books for Green Living. And a giveaway! says Stisso who said...

Hey! I like to read! I signed up.

Is the lucky winner of this giveaway! Keep your eyes peeled for more cool giveaways from ecochick.

Hey, it's Thursday, it's October, and I'm having a good hair day. Let's run another giveaway! Whee!

ecochick's a geek. I was always the kind of kid who had my nose buried in a book. And I am still that kind of grownup. But books are made of paper, and paper comes from trees, and the planet is changing and our habits are changing and perhaps, just perhaps, the new way of reading books is not paper, but electronic. And especially if you're looking in to reading books about the environment and sustainable living, it seems strange to *not* read the book in the lowest impact way possible. And depending on how you use the book, it might make life easier. For example, cookbooks - I can't be the only one who reads the recipe off the internet from the laptop in the kitchen. (Or can I?) is the only online eBook store focused on the environment and environmentally friendly living. offers thousands of titles from top publishers about sustainable living, home and garden, green living, green building and more. EcoBrain even has a great selection of elementary, middle school and academic environmental science material. And, because eBooks don't use paper and ink to produce, or fuel to deliver, you'll be saving yourself money, and making an eco-friendly decision too! And it's so simple. You search, you pay, you download. Instant book gratification.

Right now, if you sign up for a free account, you get a $5 account credit. (Many of EcoBrain books are $5 or less, so this is a great way to get a free book and try out with no obligation.) Oh, but that's not all, ecochicks. Comment on this post and you will be entered into a giveaway for a $25 coupon for That's a total of $30. Think of the books you could download with that!

Simply comment on this post by Friday, October 10 to be entered in the giveaway, and tell me what book you'd buy from with your $30 credit. Don't worry, I won't hold you to it if you change your mind :)

Hey! I like to read! I signed up.

I think I'd probably get a few books, like:

A Homeopathic Handbook of Natural Remedies: Safe and Effective Treatment of Common Ailments and Injuries
by Laura Josephson ~

Fingerprinting & Personal Profiles (for fun)

Or, I'd just get this:

Risk Communication
by M. Granger Morgan, Baruch Fischhoff, Ann Bostrom ~

Since it's a book I could read for my thesis - I could stop taking it out of the library. Hah.

I'd get Eco Dog, Homeopathic Remedies, The Dog cookbook, and Squeaky Green to start and then I'd buy tons more :-)

Forest Gardening and the Green Dollhouse for me.

May I suggest one more place for green paper-free literature? If you enjoy listening to books as well as reading them the Ottawa Public Library offers downloadable audio books for free.
