10 things you can do tomorrow on the Green Books Campaign

The Green Books Campaign is almost here!

Tomorrow, November 10, at 1 p.m.,
200 bloggers will simultaneously publish reviews of 200 books printed on environmentally-friendly paper. By turning a spotlight on books printed using greener methods, Eco-Libris aims to raise consumer awareness about considering the environment when making book purchases.

The 200 books to be reviewed are in a variety of subjects including cooking, poetry, travel, green living, and history, and come from 56 publishers from the U.S., Canada, Australia, and the U.K. that are participating in the Green Books Campaign.

Full list of participating books and bloggers is available at http://www.ecolibris.net/greenbookscampaign2010.asp.
