    that has alot of information on the meat industry, vitamins, basically all things vegetarian. I've not been a vegetarian now for even a year yet and I still have alot to learn about the lifestyle I've chosen. Any suggestions before I just head out to the book store?

    Off the top of my head:

    Dominion by Matthew Scully
    Diet for a New America and Food Revolution by John Robbins
    Vegan: The new Ethics of Eating and Meat Market: Animals, Ethics and Money by Erik Marcus
    Becoming Vegan by Vesanto Melina and Brenda Davis
    Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser
    Animal Liberation by Peter Singer

    I've read and enjoyed all of them.

    hit the library first and see which ones are worth buying.
    Lots of info on line as well. See the FAQ sticky to start.
    A really funny book is The Perfectly Contented Meat-eater's guide to Vegetarianism, written by Mark Warren Reinhardt
    http://www.vegan.com/bookstore/all_books/32715.htm
    Mark writes/wrote a column on single vegetarians for the Boulder Veg Society. He's hilarious and concise.

    "Diet for a Small Planet"
    by Frances Moore Lappe

    I am a vegetarian because I don't believe in killing animals. My mother-in law gave
    me this book for christmas, it is an excellent account of why vegetarianism could
    stop world hunger. It is inspirationally written and has alot of neat recipes too.

    But Robbins uses the same info, so pick the book for its overall info and readability.
    I found Lappe's book a "give away" after a year.

    I think the one I like a lot is called "The Rave diet..." and it comes with a DVD called "eating" it is really awsome.
