Calling all readers!

We’re looking for a few good books for our definitive list of Mother Jones Must Reads. Help us choose by nominating your favorites. Five lucky nominators will win a year’s subscription to Mother Jones.

The specifics: Books must be nonfiction from the past 50 years. Good writing is essential, but it’s not enough on its own—we’re looking for other qualities, too, like thorough investigative reporting and/or excellent coverage of some underreported phenomenon or problem.

You have until September 27, 2009, to nominate books. Multiple nominations are allowed (and encouraged!). Once the nominating period has ended, you will have a chance to vote on a short list, from which editors will make the final cut.

Nominate books here. (In order to nominate a book, you must register.)

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
