Resolve to Read a Green Book


Environmentally relevant books can open your eyes, shift your paradigm, educate your mind and spark a movement to save the planet. Are you planning on reading any green books this year? Skim the reviews to find out what other eco-bookworms think of various book worms or check out the various sidebar categories to find books on subjects that matter most to you: green marketplace, sustainable food, the list is a long one. Add reading a green book to your list of New Year's Resolutions and share what you plan to read this coming year (or month).

Happy New Year from the wormers.

I'm going to take Arduous' recomendation and add "The End of Poverty" to my reading list. Don't know when I'll get to it, but I'll review it once it's read.

I've been reading them...just not reviewing them! I resolve to get off my duff and participate more.

I got Bottomfeeder for Christmas after learning about it here, and am looking forward to reading that in 2009.

I found "How to Grow Fresh Air" (heard about it here) on sale and am reading it now. I plan to read Three Cups of Tea soon.

Joyce: Love it that you always think about sharing your reviews with us. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on that one. It's one my list but so are a billion others.

Robin: I hear ya! Here's hoping I actually get my review of Green Collar Economy up this week. I've been meaning to write it for over a month! At least you know you're in good company. :)

BerryBird: Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. Katrina always raves about it.

Donna: And I'm going to finish Big Box Swindle. Really.

Susan B: Excellent. I remember reading the review for How to Grow Fresh Air too. Three Cups I loved.

A book that I will soon re-read is The Good Life by Helen and Scott Nearing. So inspirational and timeless.
Written about their lifestyle in Vermont and Maine that set the tone for the back-to-the-land movement.

Just received notice that Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - a year of food life," is available for me to pick up at my library. My Mother highly recommends it as well as other friends who've read her book. Her fiction is fantastic as well. I especially love "The Poisonwood Bible."
