I have no scientific study to back me up, but it seems like more people go vegan around Thanksgiving than at any other time of year. Maybe because that dead bird in the middle of the table starts to seem like…a dead bird in the middle of the table? Check out the Vegan Vine’s 10 Revealing Facts About Turkeys for some info on these amazing birds.
With that in mind, we’re giving away a few books from the Book Publishing Company. If you’re vegan already, and know it all, then pass a book along to a friend (with some cookies as bribery, of course).
First up is the most comprehensive book about vegan health and nutrition that I’ve ever read. Or maybe the only one I’ve ever read. In any case, Becoming Vegan by Vesanto Melina and Brenda Davis, is a great reference and full of answers to questions like “Where do you get your…calcium?” (You thought I was gonna’ say protein!)
And next we have two copies of Vegan in 30 Days by Sarah Taylor. The author herself went vegan after Thanksgiving, too! See what I’m saying? This looks like a fun and easy approach to an animal friendly life. Read Bianca at Vegan Crunk’s review.
To enter the giveaway just answer this simple question, what first got you interested in veganism? You can answer this whether you’re vegan or not, I figure. You’re obvs interested if you’re here. Or maybe this post is the first thing that got you interested! Your answer doesn’t have to be long, maybe it was another person, or an organization, a book or some sort of wizardry.
We’ll pick 3 winners at random at around 8pm EST.

mostly, my health. I afraid of dying young from diabetes. coupled with my already weak stomach when it comes to meat, veganism sounded like a natural place to go. I’ve only just begun but I’m really excited and passionate and cant wait to learn as much as I can.
You’ll get Becoming Vegan, christina. And the two Vegan in 30 days books go to:
Kip who says…
A vegetarian I knew randomly talked about how she’d go vegan if it wasn’t for her husband’s love of dairy, followed by a brief overview of Skinny Bitch. Weeks later I listened to my father explain to my mother how milk was obtained. Light went on, end of story.
Jamie who says:
First it was the fear of mad cow disease…then having pieces of animals on my counter when I got married and started cooking for my husband. A little research and here I am….a Vegan! Oh…and having a cow make eye contact from an animal trailer also had a huge impact. Cows have such beautiful eyes!
