Chelsea Green was kind enough to provide a copy of The Earth-Sheltered House: An Architect's Sketchbook by Malcolm Wells, and I'm glad they did.  The book is full of his sketches with handwritten notes — it feels like I'm reading something that's handwritten just for me.  Wells tells it like it is with his own voice.  He drew me in, and before I knew it, I was already on the last page.

The Thoreau You Don't Know [Giveaway]

The-thoreau-you-don't-know We're giving away a copy of this book to one commenter below, so make sure to comment with a valid email before midnight on Friday, May 22, 2009.*

In terms of non-architectural books, this is probably the most interesting book I've read in a long time.  In The Thoreau You Don't Know: What the Prophet of Environmentalism Really Meant, Robert Sullivan thoroughly and cleverly tells the real story of Henry David Thorough.  It's a different story than the one we've all become accustomed to hearing.  But it's fascinating and compelling.  And if you've ever thought of invoking the name of Thoreau in support of this or that environmental cause, give it a read before doing so.

True Green Home Book [Giveaway]

True-green-home We're giving a copy of this book away to one lucky commenter below, so make sure to comment before midnight on Sunday, March 15, 2009.*

Just about a week ago, National Geographic released a new book called True Green Home: 100 Inspirational Ideas for Creating a Green Environment at Home.  The book features, of course, 100 green ideas, as well as 10 company case studies and a resource index with links and a glossary.  Oddly, I guess our site was good enough to get a free review copy of the book, but not quite good enough to get listed in the links section.  But that's okay, we're still riding a high from being listed in The Gort Cloud … Anyway, True Green Home packages basic green concepts in a nice way — it's particularly helpful for starters and anyone looking for inspiration.
