Regarding “Are Books Obsolete?” by Molly Marsh (May 2009): As a LEED accredited professional, I appreciate the necessity of sustainable practices to promote better health and well-being for our world. I suggest that you pick up a copy of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things, by William McDonough and Michael Braungart. Not only is the information on building a sustainable world invaluable, it takes our current level of recycling to a higher level.

Thank you, Molly, for your insights into the changes in the publishing industry. It is one of many we will see and should understand.
