Most of you know that I am an advocate for buying local foods and that I am against factory farming. There are several great books concerning these issues and "Take Part", a website that I occasionally visit, has compiled at fantastic list of recommended books.
Take Part writes: "Earlier this week, TakePart asked its Food, Inc community to share some of its favorite books about the food industry. With more than 850 replies, the response was overwhelming—and exciting.
We've compiled the whole list and broken it into four sections: the most mentioned books, the runner-ups, books related to diet, and cook books.
Michael Pollan placed three books in the 10 most-mentioned. But plenty of other great voices are in the mix, speaking on industrial agriculture, the obesity crisis, migrant farmworkers, pesticides, urban farming, and more.
Prepare to be informed."

100+ Books on the Food Industry: If You Eat Food, Read Some
I have read a few, like "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle", "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "Fast Food Nation". I recommend any of these three.
Just thought that I'd share the link with you. Let me know which ones you have read or if you plan on reading any!
