This year is shaping up to be a bountiful one for vegan readers. Not only did Veganuary celebrate a record-breaking 600,000 sign-ups, but hundreds of new plant-based products have entered the market and public interest in vegan living seems to be ever-increasing. With that said, let’s take a look at some of Tofu Reader’s to-read books of 2022!
Animal Revolution by Ron Broglio
Professor Ron Broglio is returning this year with his third book exploring the relationship between humans and non-human animals. His previous works, including, Beasts of Burden: Biopolitics, Labor, and Animal Life in British Romanticism (2017) and Surface Encounters: Thinking with Animals and Art (2011), are underrated cornerstones of modern animal studies. Animal Revolution is sure to be another great addition to Broglio’s oeuvre.
My Days of Dark Green Euphoria by A.E. Copenhaver
Vegan-owned indie publisher Ashland Creek Press released the 2019 Siskiyou Prize-winning title My Days of Dark Green Euphoria by A.E. Coperhaven in February. The book follows Cara Foster, a woman whose eco-consciousness drives her to neuroticism, as she grapples with what it means to be an environmentalist. My Days of Dark Green Euphoria is destined to be a book club favorite.

The team behind Original Flava: Caribbean Recipes from Home is back with their second book of Caribbean-inspired plant-based recipes.
