Blogging Bookworm: Blue Gold Book Review

After more than two months, I have finally finished reading Blue Gold: The Battle Against Corporate Theft of the World's Water. This was the second book I had pledged to read during Green Bean's Be A Bookworm Challenge back in May. My review of the book is posted over at the Blogging Bookworm today - feel free to check it out over there! This book has really changed how I look at water and water issues, topics about which I will be writing more in the coming weeks and months. For now I'll leave you with two things to ponder:

1) Is access to sufficient safe and clean water a human right?
2) If your household water was cut off right now, permanently, could you access an alternate clean, safe supply?

Edited to add: Hey, a Greenpeace blog has also posted the review today! Neat!

Theresa, thank you so much for such a thoughtful book review. I really appreciate you not only finishing a very long book but also condensing all that into a very readable and educational review.

You're very welcome Green Bean - it is an important book and an important issue, and I'm a more aware and informed person for having read it, even though it was tough slogging now and then. And, it's been crossposted from your site to a Greenpeace site today too - www.stoptarsands.wordpress.com - which is cool.

Awesome, Theresa! Look at you go!
