Giveaway: Worldchanging & Nature

Worldchanging Nature

This is part of the Jetson Green birthday giveaway, so make sure to leave a comment by midnight Friday, July 25, 2008, if you want to be considered for the contest.*

If there’s anything that I’ve learned from you the reader, it’s that you’re (1) concerned for the environment and (2) smart, engaged, demanding, and relentless in your pursuit of quality information.  For that reason, I’ve decided to giveaway two books together as kind of a bundle to one commenter.*  The first book is Worldchanging: A User’s Guide to the 21st Century in paperback.  The forward was written by Al Gore and the rest was edited by Alex Steffen — it’s 600 pages full of legit solutions.  The second book is Nature and Selected Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  What can I say about this book other than it contains over 15 classic writings that have influenced thousands and thousands of people.  Both books are highly influential, both books are perfect for smart Jetson Green readers. 

How to Purchase (if you don’t win):
Worldchanging and Nature are both nice to have around and re-read.  If you don’t win and you want to pick up a copy, feel free to give Amazon a try for both Worldchanging and Nature

*Please read and review the giveaway terms prior to leaving a comment.  To be considered for this giveaway, your comment must be entered prior to midnight mst on Friday, July 25, 2008.  Good luck!

    Boy, I really hate winning things. Surely I hope I do not win. Winning is not for everyone, you know.

    … good lord I hope I win. Winning totally rules.

    What an inspired idea to combine these two books into a single giveaway! The Emerson really represents 19th-century environmentalism, and *Worldchanging* offers a way to extend those concerns into the 2st century. . .cool combo! Thanks for the chance to win!
