Just to add to this great list, a very inspiring book I've recently finished reading is "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver.  It's about her family's venture into sustainable farming, and the challenge the undertook to only consumer home- or locally-grown produce for an entire year.  Great read -- entertaining, inspiring, and educational.

Another great book that really makes you think about your food sources:


"Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollen


After reading this, I ended up looking at the ingredients of all of the food products I consume. Corn, corn, corn everywhere.

I've heard that Baking Soda makes a great natural cleaner when mixed with sea salt.  Is that discussed in the book?  I'll have to check it out at our local library.  I'm always interested in learning new types of cleaning products!

Anyone think this might make a good wiki?  The export to wiki button is pretty cool!  Hint hint.

Some of my favorite green books (mostly related to global warming) are


Hell and High Water by Joseph Romm

The Hype About Hydrogen by Joseph Romm

Heat by George Monbiot

Six Degrees By Mark Lynas

With Speed and Vengence by Fred Pearce


You could make these lists into a pretty good wiki.

Okay, folks.  The wiki's been created.  I'm leaving it to you to separate your book recommendations into the appropriate sections.
