Please add your favorites

(Read them at the library, check with inter-library loan, borrow from a friend, check at used bookstores and library and literacy council book sales)

Some of my favorites:

How Much Is Enough?
The Consumer Society & The Future Of The Earth
By Alan Thein Durning

By Henry David Thoreau

A Reasonable Life: Toward a Simpler, Secure, More Humane Existence
by Ferenc Mate

Living More With Less
A Pattern For Living With Less
By Doris Jantzen Longacre
There is a religious slant to this one (Mennonite) but the book is so GOOD, and such a classic, that it should not be overlooked.

Clutter Control
Putting Your Home On A Diet
By Jeff Campbell
Not specifically progressive oriented, but a serious reminder that we all have WAY too much stuff.

Your Money Or Your Life
Transforming Your Relationship With Money & Achieving Financial Independence
By Joe Dominguez, Vicki Robin

The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World by John Robbins, et al

Fast Food Nation
by Eric Schlosser
