Update from the book tour of 'Sleep Is for the Weak'

Update from the tour: the book tour of BlogHer's first book "Sleep is for the Weak," edited by Rita Arens ( and starring 23 mommybloggers is continuing with four events with our stickers on to go!

Just to remind you, 'Sleep is for the Weak' (Chicago Review Press, September 2008) brings together the best parenting essays written by the most talented mommybloggers in the blogosphere. The anthology provides clever, humorously true stories every parent can relate to, and tackles issues that many mothers and fathers face but are reluctant to discuss.

Eco-Libris is collaborating with editor Rita Arens to offer those who will purchase the book during the book tour, including today's event, the opportunity to balance out their new copy by planting one tree for it with us. All buyers will also receive with the book our sticker (made of recycled paper) saying "One tree planted for this book".

Seeking advice and a sense of camaraderie, more than half a million readers per month turn to the "mommy blogs" featured in this collection, which brings together their best and brightest essays, ranging in style from snort-Diet-Coke-out-the-nose funny to poignant and bittersweet.
