Uncompensated advertisement

I'd just like to put in a plug here for a book that's great at thinking through the ramifications of living in a consumerist culture, while maintaining a laugh-out-loud sense of humor as well as a sense of proportion. It's called Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping, by Judith Levine, and you can click here to buy it through your local independent bookstore. (Enter your zip code on the splash page.)

I read about this book. Scares me! I GET the idea but I'd miss thrift stores and other places I dig for clothing and household stuff.

I like your urge to change your carbon imprint on the earth. It's time for all of us to live green.

Oh, St. C, you must read it, if only for the hysterical scene in a Montana thrift store. I think she'd pique your sense of ingenuity.
