Weekend Reads + 2010 Green Books Campaign

I am so excited that there are no classes tomorrow!  What my school used to called "Columbus Day Break" is now being called "Autumn Vacation".  Because, ya know, Columbus was really a mean, evil person who enslaved the natives.  I'm working tomorrow, but just for a few hours in the evening.  I can sleep in!

I went to the book store this week and bought two books: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, which I meant to get from the library but has been on hold for ages, and The Little Stranger, which I think will be perfect for a creepy Halloween read.

I also signed up for the 2010 Green Books Campaign.  I just found out about it this weekend, actually.  It's a campaign to promote books that are printed sustainably, on recycled paper or what have you.  I'm so glad I found this because I am a huge supporter of rycycling and saving trees.  And I often feel really guilty about buying books because I know they were once beautiful trees.  They are still looking for bloggers interested in reviewing books!  They have a PDF list of books to choose from, and the ones that don't have blog links next to them are still available.  Basically you get the book from the publisher and then post your review on November 10th.  To look at the list of books, go here.  They want a total of 200 bloggers and have room still for more :)

I wish everyone a happy week to come, and if you have tomorrow off, happy "Autumn Vacation"!  I have a week full of reviews to post, so watch out for those!  And hello to all my new followers from the Book Blogger Hop!
