Today I started reading Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping by Judith Levine. I picked it up for several reasons including I just finished Gone Tomorrow: the Hidden Life of Garbage by Heather Rogers for the current evens book club I help host at the library. After finishing Gone Tomorrow I feel like I’m doing more than my share of contributing to the garbage problem with my consumerism. Of course the subject matter appeals to me and when I read the blurb inside the jacket could have been written by me – “…disgusted with the commerce in everything from pet cloning to patriotism, panicked over the fate of her finances and that of the trash-strewn earth, Judith Levine enlists her partner, Paul, in a radical experiment: to forgo all but the most necessary purchases for an entire year.” I’m only a couple of pages in but so far I’m really enjoying it. We’ll see if I’m motivated to try my own year without shopping when I’m done!
