It’s fall, and for me that means it’s the perfect season for cozying up in a comfy sweater with a hot vegan beverage and a good book. There are all kinds of animal rights books out there, but I’ve picked a few of the most inspiring for your enjoyment:
1. Mercy For Animals by Nathan Runkle

2. The Pig Who Sang to the Moon by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

3. Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
Hailed by literary critics as the best book about animal agribusiness ever written, Eating Animals discusses the various ways we justify our meat habit.
