News and features

Today is the day of the Green Books Campaign, a programme run by Eco-Libris to promote awareness of eco-friendly publishing. As part of the programme, over 200 bloggers and reviewers (including me!) have reviewed books printed on recycled or FSG-friendly paper. Please support the programme by visiting the Eco-Libris website, and by reading and commenting on bloggers reviews.
