VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate Earth Day 2012, the Institute of Subjective Well-Being makes "A course in happiness" available as a free Amazon Kindle book on http://www.amareway.org/a-course-in-happiness-book from April 18th until April 22nd (Earth Day). Instead of paying for it, readers are invited to take a green pledge for Earth Day 2012, and to sign the HT Oneness Declaration.
"Joyful living is part of who we are as human beings. Happiness is facilitated by the beauty and generosity of our Planet. Earth Day is an opportunity to celebrate this, and to strengthen sustainable daily habits," says the book author, Frank Ra. "A course in happiness" was the Top One rated (fiction and non-fiction) book in the Kindle Store in March. It is currently the Top One rated book for Mental Health, and top Three for Self-help. It received very positive reviews, from readers and international media.
Digital books (and digital content delivery in general), plus synergies between local bookstores and print-on-demand publishers, help to preserve the environment. Trees are saved, and there is a carbon footprint reduction on printing, delivery, storage, waste-disposal, etc. Earth Day is an inspiring time to leverage green publishing practices, and take a green pledge to live a more sustainable life, and to sign the Oneness Declaration, celebrating how interconnected humanity is.
