Eco Reading Challenge
Date: May 1st through September 1st of 2009
For details: Click here.
The challenge (put simply): Read 1-5 books related to the environment or green-living, plus commit one green reading act (see Chris's post for explanation).
My list (I'm shooting for three, but will count it as a success if I finish one):
*Walden by Henry David Thoreau
*Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine
*Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change by Elizabeth Kolbert
*The Diversity of Life by E.O. Wilson
*Javatrekker: Dispatches from the World of Fair Trade Coffee by Dean Cycon
*Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic by John De Graaf, David Winn, and Thomas Naylor
...or whatever strikes my fancy
I love this challenge! I have no idea yet what my green reading act may be...we already do all the things she had listed, right down to already planting a new tree in our yard this year. But hopefully I'll be able to come up with something new.
