We’ll get to the Kindle Fire Giveaway Details shortly, but I want to take a minute or two to talk about the green features of e-readers.

Over a thousand beautifully-illustrated children's books available on Kindle Fire

We do not have an e-reader, like the Kindle Fire, ourselves, but have been considering getting one to share with our kids.  Our daughter recently started pouring through books just like her mom, so it could be a great investment and save lots of space.

Several of our friends and family members that have e-readers love them.  To be able to suddenly decide that you want to read a book or magazine, go online, pay for it and have it at your finger tips in minutes is really cool.  Getting books electronically means we avoid the whole paper production process and use of resources like trees and water.  It also means we avoid the embodied energy for printing, manufacturing and shipping the books.  Remember that E-readers have their own embodied energy and should be disposed of responsibly as well.  I expect that if you do not read much, an e-reader would become another electronic device that consumes resources without much value.   If you read a lot of books and articles on an e-reader, then it is a better environmental choice than paper books, using less energy and resources per book.  Enter below to win a Kindle Fire of your very own.  If you can’t wait to see if you win, you can always buy a Kindle Fire from Amazon.com.

Good luck!

  1. The last book I read cover-to-cover was the complete Twilight series while I was in the hospital two months ago.

  2. I read all the time. I finished one this morning and will be looking for the last in the series the next time I go to town. Yes, an e-reader would mean I could start it this afternoon. My house is overrun with books, so the space savings would be a blessing.

  3. I read a knitting book from the library cover-to-cover finishing just a few days ago.

  4. I can’t remember the last time I was able to read a book cover to cover. Maybe last summer!

  5. Jenni Dunfee says:

    I read a book a week. Reading through A Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones) right now.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Last book I read was part of the World of Warcraft War of the Ancients trilogy.

  7. One of the most recent books I have read cover to cover is called Natural Childbirth, very thought provoking!

  8. Tarri Christopher says:

    I just finished a book called the Backyard Beekeeper by Kim Flottum.

  9. I am an avid reader, especially books on self reliance, homesteading, gardening, etc. The last book I read from cover to cover was actually today, a book about making soap using goats milk. =)
