Green Festivals recommend on the 10 green books you should read on 2009

This week our ongoing series of Monday's green books is taking a week off, but we have a great alternative for you, and we're not talking about one green book, but 10 green books! Green Cotton (great blog by the way) presented last week Green Festivals’ top 10 green books that were published on 2008 and are to be read on 2009 (if you haven't read them yet).

So what's i
n the list? here it is:

"Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution - And How It Can Renew America" by Thomas L. Friedman

"Hope on a Tightrope: Words and Wisdom" by Cornel West

3. "Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution" by Paul Hawken , Amory Lovins and L. Hunter Lovins

"The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems" by Van Jones

5. "Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things" by William McDonough and Michael Braungart

"Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What's at Stake for American Power" by Mark Schapiro

7. "The Thrive Diet: The Whole Food Way to Lose Weight, Reduce Stress, and Stay Healthy for Life" by Brendan Brazier

"The Green Parent: A Kid-Friendly Guide to Earth-Friendly Living" by Jenn Savedge

9. "Go Green, Live Rich: 50 Simple Ways to Save the Earth and Get Rich Trying" by David Bach and Hillary Rosner

10. "My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey" by Jill Bolte Taylor

This is a great list. It includes some many great books that we intend to cover and review on 2009, as well as one book ("The Green Parent") that we had the pleasure to work with and plant trees for the copies printed as you can see from its cover, where our logo is presented.

These books are available on Better World Books (as you can see from the links) under The Green Festival list, where you can also check out which book is the most popular (currently it's 'My Stroke of Insight).

For those of you who are not familiar yet with this great company, Better World Books
collects and sells books online to fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than two million new and used titles in stock, they're a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders. You can learn more about them at
