I love reading, I was just wondering what animal rights books anyone has read that they found informative/ good. I am currently reading slaughterhouse, pretty good. Although I have amost cried twice (when the slaughterhouse workers described stuff they did to pigs and when a little girl died from a heart attack for eating tainted meat) And I felt sick once (made the mistake of reading while eating) I like to stay informed for when I have those dumb people that say "Animal abuse in slaughter houses rarely happens" [Aaaaaa wha?]



What books has everyone else read???

I read skinny *****. Actually quite funny, unless you need to loose weight....I dont know how I would feel about the "Get your fat ass up" or the other things they say, but it IS pretty straight and to the point!!! lol

I really liked The Vegetarian Female by Anika Avery-Grant. The rest of the books I read I've forgotten about, but I still have that one floating around my house and I pick it up again every once in a while.

Animal Liberation is a heavy book on animals and how they are treated and the feelings that they have. It is quite informative though.



You don't need meat is a good one.



I can't think of any others I have read right now. I know there has been way more...drawing a blank though.

I'm currently reading "Thanking the Monkey" by Karen Dawn, which is a very comprehensive book about animal rights in general. I'm really enjoying it so far, but I'm only a couple chapters in, so I can't provide a full review yet.
