Looking for great green ebooks? Check our weekly list of 10 recommended green ebooks!

We write here extensively on the ongoing dilemma of how green e-books are. Even though we believe e-reading can get greener, we can't ignore the growing popularity of ebooks (and you know I am fond of my Kindle..) and we want to help those of you who look to read interesting ebooks on green topics.

Therefore, starting this week, we'll have here a list of 10 recommended ebooks that we either read now or read about on Treehugger, Grist and other websites we follow. Most of them are new and were either released in the last month or two or about to be released (but already available as ebooks).

The links of these ebooks are to and I apologize in advance to all the Nook, iPad, Kobo and Sony Reader owners. I hope you can easily find an ebook you'll like on other ebookstores. This is also the place to disclose that we're taking part in Amazon's affiliate program and therefore will receive a small percentage of every purchase made using these links. We hope you don't mind!

So from now on we'll have a new list every Wednesday and you will be able to find all the lists on our recommended green ebooks webpage.
