6 days left to the Green Books campaign: who are the publishers that take part in it?

The countdown continues with 6 days left to our green books campaign:
1 Day, 100 bloggers, 100 green books, 100 reviews.

If you didn't hear about it yet, here's a reminder:
On Tuesday, November 10, 2009, at 1:00 PM Eastern Time over 100 bloggers will take a stand to support books printed in an eco-friendly manner by simultaneously publishing reviews of more than 100 such books. Organized by Eco-Libris, this campaign is aiming to promote “green” books by reviewing more than 100 books printed on recycled paper or FSC-certified paper. A full list of the books that will be reviewed on the campaign and the blogs reviewing them is available on the campaign's web page.

Today we want to highlight all the publishers who are participating in the campaign -
39 publishers from the U.S., Canada and the U.K. are taking part in this campaign, providing participating bloggers with their latest books printed on recycled paper and FSC certified paper for review.

We believe it's time to show our appreciation to these publishers who do take a stand and make efforts to print books responsibly. We hope that the campaign will bring more exposure to these efforts as well as further recognition and appreciation of readers for the publishers' commitment to the environment and to green publishing. We also hope it will encourage other publishers to follow suit.

Here is the list of participating publishers and links to their websites. In brackets is the number of their books to be reviewed in the campaign.
