during my first month or so of being a vegan, i have been reading the idiot's guide to vegan living

lately i've been reading only a little of it and then not picking it up for a few days

but i find that on the days i do read it, it is much easier to make better dietary i really should read it more often

it's just easier for me to eat vegan when i know and am reminded of how good it is for me and the animals and the environment

so, just as a suggestion to any new veg*n who is having trouble staying on track, i think you should certainly try to find a great book about it and try to read just a little bit of it every day (or a lot, if you like)

i would certainly recommend the idiot's guide to vegan is split into small sections that only take a few minutes each to read

it has kept me on track quite well

other than that book, i'm not sure what others to check out...i'm positive there is a thread about good veg*n books somewhere around here

John Robin's Food Revolution is both inspirational and informative. It really helped keep me on track in my beginning vegan stages.

I, er, didn't read the whole thing, but Vegan Freak seemed pretty good.

It's not specifically about veg*nism, but I read Upton Sinclair's The Jungle a few years ago and it made me glad to be vegetarian and perhaps strengthened my resolve a little.

"Living Among Meat Eaters" by Carol Adams.

It's a unique and needed book advising veg*ns on how to gracefully navigate tricky situations in an omni world.

slops, gloops, and gruels.

Wow it's been forever since I read that ^ book. I should pick it up again cause as I remember it was pretty helpful when I first went vegan. Thank for the reminder

And yes, The Jungle is very good. It converted on of my instructors after we were having a veg discussion.
