Earth Day: Read Green 2015

Every year in March, Robin and I start talking cautiously about whether or not we want to tackle Earth Day.  At first, it seems impossible.  We barely post a few times a month as it is, how can we expect to come up with a post every single day in April?  No, we think.  We’re way too busy, we think.  Not this year, we think.

But then one of us starts talking, theoretically of course, about what this year’s Earth Day posts might look like.  If we were doing Earth Day, which we’re not, what would we write about?  This year, Robin ruined our best intentions by suggesting that you know, it might be fun to do a literary Earth Day celebration.  Books?  Nature?  Those are two of our favorite things!  Yeah, we’re in.

So for 2015 and our third annual month of Earth Day posts, we’ll be bringing you our favorite books, authors and anything else we can creatively wrangle into our theme. You want biographies?  We got ‘em.  Picture books?  No problem.  Reviews of highly scholarly articles about the relationship between greenhouse gasses and e-ink?  Maybe not so much.

This April, we’re reading green.  I don’t make promises lightly, but I personally guarantee that if you haven’t found at least one book you’ll love by the end of this month, I’ll silently judge your literary tastes.  And you can take that to the bank.

    Oh boy, I predict some Transcendentalist lit in the future! Walden? Leaves of Grass? 🙂
