Last year, I participated in the Green Books Campaign hosted by Eco-Libris and I am glad to say that I will be participating again this year (a green company working to green up the book industry by promoting the adoption of green practices in the industry, balancing out books by planting trees, and supporting green books). I will be reviewing For the Love of Strangers by Jacqueline Horsfall so be sure to check out my review on November 10th.


I read about FreeRice.com from a magazine and would like to share this great site with you. This is a non-profit website run by the UN World Food Programme and their goals are to provide education to everyone as well as to help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free, and this is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.

And how do we help and make a difference? Playing the vocabulary game (there are other subjects as well) at FreeRice not only allows us in learning new vocabulary but most importantly FreeRice will donate 10 grains of rice for each correct answer. FreeRice also has a custom database containing knowledge questions at varying levels of difficulty so this can be played by everyone! (Read more.)

So what are we waiting for? Go green and help others now!

    I'm going to review a book for Green Books as well, it is such a good idea. I'm clicking over to the Free Rice site right now.

    I love Eco-Libris's Green Campaign. I participated last year and decided not to this year because I've been having such a tough time reading, but I can't wait to see what everyone else is reading!

    My little sister introduced me to freerice.com a few years ago. We had a blast going through all the words and trying to define them. And it helps others--can't beat that!
