Not Buying It

I recommend "Not Buying It : My Year Without Shopping" by Judith Levine as a thoughtful introduction to the life of non-consumption from a secular, feminist perspective. Levine goes all the way and eliminates all luxury items, including entertainment. A provacative look at what it means to be relatively affluent in the city of plenty--New York. She has a wonderful grasp of some of the philosophical pro's and con's of choosing non-consumption.
