There's a couple of viagra australia no prescription
reports flying around that HP7 (Harry Potter and
the Deathly Hallows) is the greenest book in history! Well, I just wanted to let everyone know that that is complete crap.
Sorry if I'm being snide, but this is a ridiculous headline
considering that HP7 is nothing like the greenest book in history.
Rebelling Against Recycling
After the publication of the extremely long and best-selling Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix, J.K. Rowling got a bit disturbed by the plight of the trees. Indeed, 250,000 trees were required for that printing. So she asked her publishers to http://www.americanfoods.com/levitra-woman
print the book on 100% recycled paper. Almost all of her publishers agreed. Unfortunately, her largest publisher, Scholastic, which publishes the U.S. editions, did not agree. And now, instead of having a "no trees were harmed in the levitra from canada
making of this book" label, we've got a "we chopped down 30% less trees than we could've...we're so green!" annoucement.Electronic Idiocy
Worst of ojalafilms.com
all, in my opinion, is that no Harry Potter book has ever been downloaded legally. Rowling made this decision years ago, citing fears about piracy. Obviously it's ridiculous to suppose that this decision has in any way decreased piracy, as every book is available for download if you know where to look (including the yet-to-be-released HP7.) An Electronic HP7 might have been the greenest book in history, but Rowling made a bad decision, and so that is unfortunately not possible.Missed Opportunities
There has never been a book more suited for electronic release. With Harry Potter, people are willing to pay to a premium to receive the book as soon as possible. That could have been arranged, with a simple system allowing folks to pay upfront for an ebook delivery by email. This could have been a boon for the budding ebook industry. It could have helped standardize formats and viagra femele
introduced people to the idea. It could have made Jo and her publishers additional millions. It could have saved tens of thousands of trees. Buy Used, Borrow or Trade
Though in all of these circumstances Rowling gets exactly as much money as if you download the book online, these three practices haven't been outlawed yet. There will be tens of thousands of used HP7s in the coming weeks, so find a friend who's finished theirs, swap them for some other fantasy classic, or just promise to levitra online shop
bring it back in a week or two. Unfortunately, libaries will necessarily be short on the books, but you can get on waiting lists.Buy Canadian
If you still haven't bought HP7, I do not endorse pirating it. If you want your own copy, the best thing you can do is head to Amazon.ca, and buy the Canadian edition. Rowling's Canadian publisher, Raincoast Books, was the http://www.aco.ca/uk-viagra-sales
first to publish 100% recycled Harry Potter books and have since converted their entire domestic line to 100% post consumer content. Plus, the Canadian edition keeps all the quaint British words and spellings. A must-have for any true Harry Potter dork.In Conclusion
I'm not saying that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a particularly ungreen book, nor am I saying that you should feel guilty about buying a copy (I certainly don't.) But I think it's important to recognize what's "green" and what isn't. All I'm saying is that it's not the greenest book in history.
