Are you part of a book club? Maybe you and a group of friends just wish you had more time to get into all of the great green books out there. Why not start a green book club, or ask the folks in your current club to through in a green selection every few months? 

Green book clubs are such a great way for people who are interested in environmental issues to get together and hash out the issues and themes that are weaved through eco-minded books. There is no right or wrong way to get started with a book club; just pick a title and set a date and time to meet and discuss it. Here are seven great green reads you might want to try to get things started:

  1. Silent Spring, by Rachel Carson
  2. Confessions of an Eco Sinner, by Fred Pearce
  3. Walden, by Henry David Thoreau
  4. The Green Collar Economy, by Van Jones
  5. Gaia Girls: Enter the Earth by Lee Wells
  6. Hope for Animals and Their World: How Endangered Species Are Being Rescued from the Brink, by Jane Goodall
  7. Mom, Will This Chicken Give Me Man Boobs? by Robyn Harding
Oh, and don't forget to keep it green by asking members to check these selections out from the library or sharing and borrowing within the group or from online sites like Bookswim.
