Earth Day 2011: 9 Of The Best Books You Should Read To Celebrate (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 04/22/11 10:32 AM ET   Updated: 06/22/11 06:12 AM ET

It's Earth Day, and in order to celebrate, we asked you what you'd be reading, or recommend reading, to recognize the day.

We got a wide range of responses, from the cheeky ("Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy") to some childhood favorites (Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax"). One Facebook user even commented that she would simply be reading "e-books, because they don't kill trees."

Whichever you feel is better for the environment, print or e-book, definitely indulge today.

Did we leave out an environmental favorite of yours? Let us know in the comments!

"Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet" by Bill McKibben

In "Eaarth," McKibben points out that it's all downhill from here. Even if we stopped emissions immediately, global warming would continue. He explains that because we're living in the midst of this crisis, it's important that we think about our survival.
