Remember, all discussion topics regarding Uncompromising Honor must be tagged with a spoiler warning.

Sorry. I am new enough to the forum that I haven't been here when a new book arrived.

Could you add a "Spoiler Warning" to my topic? Or take it off?

Thanks

I especially like the ones that include a spoiler IN THE THREAD TITLE! I mean, seriously. Just because you've read the e-book doesn't mean that everyone else isn't waiting for the dead tree version.

I really hate referring to books as the dead tree version. Sounds so blase about the damage we do to our ecosystem. OTOH, perhaps it is perfect because of that reason, it offends, thus encourages discourse, thought and or reflection, with or without ones self.

I like the petrified version. Poor tree was shaking in its boots at the frightening sound of a chainsaw.



Q:
How Many Trees Does It Take to Make a Textbook?

A:
Quick Answer
The number of trees required depends on several factors, including the type of paper and the sizes of the tree and book. To estimate, an average tree provides approximately 8,333 sheets of copy-type paper. Using this formula, one tree can provide 16.6 copies of a 1,000-page book.

It is estimated that to publish all the printed books sold in the US annually requires 30 million trees. Over 160 publishers, representing 40% of the market share, have developed environmental policies or signed agreements related to responsible paper use. The growing prevalence of eBooks is also greatly reducing the use of trees.


Almost forgot I had a question. . .

When is the ban on spoilers lifted? When do the spoilers spoil? When is it open season on the book?

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense
