Book giveaway: David Suzuki's Green Guide

Welcome to week two of Robin is purging her office. Actually, we're purging lots of rooms and spent the better part of the last two days clearing out the room we call The Internet Cafe. It's a small room right off the kitchen that has the boys' computer in it, book shelves and a small table where my husband and I frequently drink coffee and work on our laptops - hence the name of room.

It's also where the boys do their homework, and by the end of the school year we were knee deep in papers and other stuff that had piled up in the small space. Purging when you're trying to be environmentally friendly is tough. I recycle all that I can and find new homes for useful things we no longer want, but sometimes there is no other option for some things than the trash can. 

But I digress. You want to know about this week's book giveaway. I'm loving this giveway option to find homes for these books.

David Suzuki's Green Guide: How to find fresher, tastier, healthier food. Create an eco-friendly home. Make sustainable transportation choices. Reduce consumption and be a green citizen.
(Seriously long name for a book, isn't it?)

I reviewed this book for Sustainablog last year. It's an information intense book. It's kind of like a resource guide for greening most of the aspects of your life.

A disclaimer: I've written a bit in the book. There are some passages underlined and a few written notes that I jotted down to remember when I wrote the review. The book is in great condition except for that, though.

Here's what you have to do to win this book:
  • Leave a comment in the comment section saying you'd like the book. 
  • Make sure I have a way to contact you if you win. The winner will be chosen randomly. If I chose you and find there is no way to contact you directly, I will chose another random winner. You can either leave your e-mail address in your comment, make sure that there is a link along with your comment that leads me to contact information, or as some smart people did last week - leave me your twitter name.
  • Live in the U.S. Sorry, I can't ship to other countries at the moment.
  • The contest ends at 11:59pm EST on Monday, June 29th. Winner will be announced onor before Wednesday, July 1st. (okay, I just realized July is only one week away - scary)
Have you checked out the  $1 charity fundraiser that I'm participating in with a group of other fine eco-bloggers yet? We're trying to raise money for an environmental group and those who donate get to vote on who gets the money. Please consider voting and donating a dollar.
