I am going to try and read more ebooks this year. I have already been making sure my computer is off when not being use and any other electronics. I think I might try reading by candlelight and see how that works too.

Hi Lisa

What a great idea this is. I know I've come into this late although I've had your Green Challenge logo up on my My Space www.myspae.com/hywelalyn for ages -

I also have it on my Blog hywelalyn.blogspot.com.

I'm doing my best to save paper by recycling and using Emails rather than writing letters, switching lights and pcs off when not in use. I send all my MSs and correspondence with my publisher by Email. I also took part in 'Earth Hour' last month and switched off all the lights in the house for an hour at 8.00 pm

Excellent, and glad to hear about your Earth Hour last month, Hywela! We did it here, too, only it became more like three hours. It was fun!
