Top Ten Vegan Books on My Reading List

I'm the kind of person that always has a book on the go, usually 2 or three, and I never seem to finish them. I'll admit, between the day job, working on the online store, writing articles, this blog, cooking vegan food for friends, and trying out new recipes, I don't know always find time to read. Or I read before bed and manage to get through 2 pages before falling asleep and dropping the book on the floor. I really want to read more! How does one make more time for stuff one wants to do....? Anyways, here's a list of the top vegan books I want to read. In no particular order:

1. The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick Goudreau

2. Diet for a New America by John Robbins

3. The China Study by Dr. T Colin Campbell

4. Thanking the Monkey by Karen Dawn

5. Striking at the Roots by Mark Hawthorne

6. The Ultimate Vegan Guide by Erik Marcus

7. Making a Killing by Bob Torres
