7 Great Indie Books to Read Whilst You Occupy Wall Street

Occupy Wall Street, a "Movement For Economic Justice", began on September 17th when--following a rally Lower Manhattan--an estimated 150 people began an encampment in Zuccotti Park.

Since then, the movement has spread world wide--from U.S. cities including Denver, Omaha and Philadelphia to North and South America, Asia, Africa and Europe, with over 1,500 events in 82 countries.

While the OWS participants have already set up a free lending Library and created a self-published newspaper--the Occupied Wall Street Journal--we thought we'd contribute to the movement by suggesting some great indie titles to fill the time between demonstrating and getting doused with pepper spray. Like the OWSJ, all of the books are self-published and speak to the power of the individual.

To those of you who have been there from the start, and for those who are just joining in, you have our support and thanks. This list is for you!
