Bill McKibben's best books picks

Bill McKibben, who recently put his new book Deep Economy to the Page 69 Test, chose a list of "best books" for The Week magazine.

One title from the list:
Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry

Any book by this Kentucky farmer-writer will do, but this recent novel is a particularly moving part of his ongoing project: showing the meaning of and need for real human community. Once you're finished with this, continue on to his collected essays.
Read the entire list.
