How can a librarian write a blog without making a list of useful books on the subject? Here are some of my favorite books about minimalism and downsized living. I’m still working on this one. Come back in a bit for more.
You’ll see that I haven’t linked to Amazon or other major booksellers for info on these books. In the spirit of using less and supporting communities more, I’ve linked to either the author’s page or to WorldCat, the world’s largest online catalog. You can use it to find the closest library to you that has the book. Hooray for libraries!
