There are lots of wonderful books about veganism. Some help encourage a vegan diet through research, others teach how to be vegan, and more share people’s stores about becoming vegan and what it means to them. They can be great resources for information and inspiration.
Oddly, I have read very few of them. My decision to become vegan was a very personal one. At the time, a friend went vegan with me and later stopped. But, I kept going. Almost 15 years have passed and I know I have lots to learn, but that is how I view life in general. There is always lots to learn. I have, however, read many books about the environment, which I feel is intimately intertwined with what we eat.
Reading the resources you enjoy should happen. I have read websites, magazines, a couple books, gone to lectures, and built or joined a community of supportive vegan friends everywhere I have lived. These are the resources that have inspired me and fulfilled my need for information thus far. I will most likely read more books in the future because I love to read and my current community of vegans have been sharing the ones that are inspiring them.
I have enjoyed these books:
The Great American Detox Diet by Alex Jamieson
Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin
