I'm already on page 100, and I can't put the damn thing down. I'm happy to report that my favorite hero's chronichles are being reported on the greenest pages around.

Final Harry Potter tome is "greenest book in publishing history"


The final installment of the mugglicious series is said to be the greenest book in publishing history -- a good thing, since it's set sales records at retailers like Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. Sixteen publishers around the world used eco-friendly paper for the edition, including U.S. publisher Scholastic, which went the conventional route for the last Harry book and faced a boycott as a result. In all, says Markets Initiative, a Vancouver-based group that helps publishers go green, the switch for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has saved nearly 200,000 trees and avoided almost 8,700 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. Which totally makes up for the fact that Harry dies in the end. Oops, did we say that out loud?

I'm actually kinda pissed that you guys republished a spoiler without a warning. Bad form.
