A Novel Way of Going Green.

Novel Places, is to be found at Mayorga Coffee (23207 Stringtown Road Clarksburg, MD).

Apparently it's an online store that offers a forum to discuss literary issues and books. The owner says he intentionally wants it the way he would want a brick and mortar store to be - a place where people can relax by a fire or in a comfy chair for conversation, reading, and purchasing a good book. I'm not quite sure how that's going to work, but the essence is good .... I suppose.

The good part is there’s going to be a tree planted for every book purchased through Eco-Libris. Customers will receive a sticker (made of recycled paper) saying “one tree planted for this book” with every new book purchased at Novel Places.

Well that's novel!

I can't make up my mind whether he's jumping on the 'green' bandwagon, or whether he's a genuine person. Am I being super-critical again?

Whatever the reason, if a tree really is planted then I'm all for it.
