Forests are disappearing at an alarming rate. Eight (8) million tons of trees are used each year in the production of catalogs. You can control the catalogs you want coming to your home at CatalogChoice.org.
What about books? I've added a link to the Kindle Wireless Reading Device to this website navigation bar. It's to books what iPod is to music. Some people can't imagine giving up the touch and smell of a book (by the way, that smell is toxic since it's all about glues and inks), but if you just can't retrain your the smell area of the brain, there's now BookSwim, which is to books what Netflix is to movies.
You rent books online as you would movies. With over 30,000 titles to choose from, no late fees and no shipping costs, BookSwim might be an excellent personal solution for you.
Fall in love with a book and want to keep it? No problem! You can pay for it online and then immediately receive another book from your list. It’s that easy and BookSwim plans begin at $14.99/month.
Update: 11/14/08 - New prices start at $9.95.
