Al Gore’s newest book, An Inconvient Truth, has been on best seller’s lists for some time and was recently nominated by 6,000 booksellers and librarians for the Quill Book of the Year award. The Quills, an initiative launched with the support of Reed Business Information and NBC, is an industry-qualified “consumers choice” awards program for books. MSNBC.com is the official voting partner for the Quill Book Awards.

The Quills were established to:

  • Celebrate excellence in writing and publishing
  • Recognize and praise the writers and illustrators of wonderful books and great literature
  • Interest more consumers in acquiring books and reading
  • Act as a bellwether for literacy initiatives

Americans are concerned about global warming but not well informed about what we are doing to cause it or how they can help to stop this threat. Reading The Inconvient Truth would be a good way to learn more.  You can encourage more people to read the book by voting for it as the Book of the Year.  Vote online at www.quillsvote.com or at www.quills.msnbc.com through Sept. 30. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13737550/
