Why plant a tree for your book? We'll give you 41 reasons in a special Earth Day Campaign

Earth Day is fast approaching (April 22) and this year we are celebrating the 41th Earth Day with a special campaign - 41 Reasons to Plant a Tree for Your Book.

With more than 180,000 trees planted so far on behalf of readers, authors and publishers working with Eco-Libris, it's no surprise that we think planting trees to green up books is a great idea..

But we also want to hear what readers think about it and why they believe planting trees for their books is a good idea, and so for 41 days, starting on March 13 and ending on April 22, Earth Day, we'll publish on our blog 41 of the best answers we'll get, one reply every day!

The campaign will begin in 11 days and if you would like to share with us your reply to our question, please send it to

We have great prizes to all the readers whose replies we'll publish, including a $25 gift card for Strand Bookstore, audiobooks from Simon & Schuster Audio (such as The Half Life by Jennifer Weiner, American Assassin by Vince Flynn and Essence of Happiness by the Dalai Lama) and great books, like Planet Home by Jeffrey Hollender, books from the Little Green Books series, Spit That Out! by Paige Wolf, The Story of Stuff by Annie Leonard and many more! You can see the full list of the prizes on the campaign's page.

The campaign will begin in only 12 days so stay tuned!
