The goal is to read books from your TBR pile that have a theme. These challenges have been really good for me, totally helping me get through this bookcase full of books that I own that I've never read.
There are three levels of participation, and I am joining at the lowest: four books focusing on one theme. My theme is, in one word, consumerism. The four books are non-fiction, and are in one way or another connected to the idea of consumerism or globalization.
So, here they are (in no particular order):
- The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman
- Branded by Alissa Quart
- The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
- Not Buying It by Judith Levine
