Go Green! Read an eBook!

I'm all about recycling. I believe it's up to us to protect the planet and up to us to educate everyone else on how to, too. But this isn't a blog about how reducing-reusing-recycling are important.

This is about buying a ebook! Don't get me wrong, I love books - paperback, hardcover, ebooks, audiobooks, it's the story I love, the characters, the plot, the piece itself. I listen to audios, read off my computer, buy paperbacks, and enjoy each incarnation of the book.

Buy an ebook - download it to your computer or iPod or MP3 player. Read it on your Sony Reader or Kindle. All Romance eBooks began a campaign "to increase the public's awareness about eBooks!"

Palm Harbor, Florida (PRWEB) February 26, 2009 - The folks at All
Romance eBooks, an on-line bookstore that specializes in the sale of romance
eBooks, announced a new endeavor today, the Go Green/Read e campaign.

"The idea is to promote ebooks in general, not any specific author,
publisher, eReader, or bookstore. The campaign will focus on eBooks as a more
environmentally friendly alternative to print. On-line advertising will be
comprised of banner and video advertising, Yahoo and Google Search Ads, MySpace
Ads, the What's Hot in Romance radio show,
the Wildfire newsletter, a variety of blogs and the newly unveiled Go
Green/Read e website," explained Lori James, COO for All Romance eBooks.

The project is supported by a generous donation from All Romance
eBooks, and a team of enthusiastic volunteers. The website,, contains information
about the environmental impact of eBooks v print books, as well as an array of
relevant links, industry news, and several forums where issues around eBooks,
eReaders, and ePublishing can be discussed.

"We chose to do this because the idea that nature should be preserved
is important to us. It is a core value and one of the reasons that we adore
eBooks," explained All Romance eBooks CFO, Barbara Perfetti. "We care about our
carbon footprint, the world we live in, and the world that we're leaving to
future generantions."

All Romance eBooks, LLC ( sells romance
eBooks for hundreds of publishers and their imprints. Founded in 2006 and
privately held in partnership, All Romance eBooks is headquartered in Palm
Harbor, Florida.

Great idea, Isabel! And I say this as an author who has three e-books coming out this year. LOL. But it is true that we all need to go green, so maybe you and I, and all our fellow e-book authors will be on the cusp of a revolution in book buying practices.
