The Eco Reading Challenge

Chris from Book-a-rama came up with this interesting idea for a challenge. The Eco Reading Challenge requires participants to read 5 books about green/environmental issues between May and September. Chris tells us to be very creative with our choices, there are plenty of fiction books that have environmental factors in their stories as well!

I think this sounds interesting - and although I've already signed up for every challenge known to man, three books on Chris' examples list are already planned in my reading for the next few months so I think I can probably make it. Or at least be close.

Ah who am I kidding, I just can't resist a good reading challenge!

Completed: 1/5 as of 5 June 2009

The Omnivore's Dilemna by Michael Pollan
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Watership Down by Richard Adams

I'm so glad to see you've joined this challenge. It's something I'd love to participate in but I noticed this week how far behind I am in my reading already. I just couldn't do this one. I hope you enjoy it.

thatsthebook - unfortunately I'm a sucker for challenges and can't resist signing up for the ones I find interesting. There's no way I can complete them all, but I try and have fun trying! :-)

I loved The Handmaid's Tale and am going to try to check out The Omnivore's Dilemma when I get home. I've heard such good things about that one.

Pardon My French - The Omnivore's Dilemma is one of those books that has been on my shelf for so long it's embarassing! ;-)
