The whole quote: "The dreamers are the saviours of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which it shall one day see and know." - James Allen Dreams, Knott Gregson, Newspaper Blackout, The Dreamers, Blackoutpoetri, Tyler Knott, Blackout Poetry, Blackout Poem, Inspiration Quotes

Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi Once a week for two years, Azar Nafisi would gather a group of students to read Western classics, forbidden in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Accordingly, Nafisi’s “memoir in books” is divided into four sections: Lolita/Gatsby/James/Austen, each allowing her to view a different time in her life through a literary classic, interspersing the discussions she had with her book club with her expulsion from her job, the Iran-Iraq war, and her decision to leave.

This book is the first thing that made me seriously consider becoming vegan.
life changing book
I can't say enough about this book. I love this author's fiction but this one is actually non-fiction. Safran-Foer takes an in-depth look at factory farming in the US - fish, cattle, chicken, and pig. He is a vegetarian, but is not making a case for it explicitly in this book. He does great job of explaining organic, free-run, and free-range. He is generally unbiased but you may still cringe at the inner-workings and abuse inside factory farms. Incredibly informative and I couldn't put it down.
Vegetarian or not - if you have any interest in Animal Welfare then you have to read this book.
My first serious inspiration to go vegan from over a year ago.
Fav. Book. Ever.

great book, worth reading over the summer! The movie was alright....book was awsome!
Water for Elephant by Sara Gruen is definitely worth reading. It's an easy read with just enough floral language to capture the moment. I really enjoyed the in'n out of Jacob's reality and his memories. Try it!
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen Good Movie; Great Book
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen Book club scheduled March 2014
Water for Elephants /Sara Gruen. I really didn't excpect a lot from this book, which I recieved as a present, but one night I couldn't sleep and I pulled it out of the shelf. And, boy, is this a good book. It's fast-paced and exhilarating. And the circus-world (especially the darker sides of it) is really fascinating. Very recommendable.
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen… one of my favorite books thanks to a great friend!

Nonficton; probably too in-depth for most. If you can't read the whole thing, start in the middle of the second section and read to the end. Those were my favorite parts and the first half reads very much like Fast Food Nation anyway.
Omnivore's Dilemma: Analyzes the state of the US food industry. Great food for thought!
Book Review: The Omnivores Dilemma :
“Eating is an agricultural act,' as Wendell Berry famously said. It is also an ecological act, and a political act, too. Though much has been done to obscure this simple fact, how and what we eat determines to a great extent the use we make of the world - and what is to become of it. To eat with a fuller consciousness of all that is at stake might sound like a burden, but in practice few things in life can afford quite as much satisfaction. By comparison, the pleasures of eating industrially, which is to say eating in ignorance, are fleeting. Many people today seem perfectly content eating at the end of an industrial food chain, without a thought in the world; this book is probably not for them.” ― Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals
The Omnivores Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta - Summer 2012 - After the rapture many are left behind. But how do these 'leftovers' deal with the remnants of civilization after the Sudden Departure.
(on my TO READ list) Tom Perrotta - The Leftovers
The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta. January 2013 book club selection. Read this one a bit early. Liked it a lot. Great premise - how would we respond if the Rapture happened and those taken were not necessarily the religious or the righteous? The story is told from the perspective of several people who were left behind.
A white family takes in a black girl who's parents died. They learn how ugly and dark people's hearts can be because of racism. Set in 1932 in a small VA town. It's a great book that makes you mad as can be, then happy and hopeful.
