This week our ongoing series of Monday's green books is taking a week off, but we have a great alternative for you, and we're not talking about one green book, but 10 green books! Green Cotton (great blog by the way) presented last week Green Festivals’ top 10 green books that were published on 2008 and are to be read on 2009 (if you haven't read them yet).
This is a great list. It includes some many great books that we intend to cover and review on 2009, as well as one book ("The Green Parent") that we had the pleasure to work with and plant trees for the copies printed as you can see from its cover, where our logo is presented.
These books are available on Better World Books (as you can see from the links) under The Green Festival list, where you can also check out which book is the most popular (currently it's 'My Stroke of Insight).
For those of you who are not familiar yet with this great company, Better World Books collects and sells books online to fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than two million new and used titles in stock, they're a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders.
