The definitive liberal lifestyle handbook

(Update: Armed with Justin's book, Matt Labash at the Weekly Standard tried his hand at living liberally for about a week. Predictable results.)

Somewhere between here and New York City, my review copy of Justin Krebs' 538 Ways to Live, Work, and Play Like a Liberal is making its way westward.

From the publisher's website:

There are hundreds of ways to lead a more environmentally friendly, socially conscious, and liberally minded life -- ways that can even be enjoyable. What readers will find in this friendly inclusive book are simple steps, lifestyle adjustments, and ideas that entertain.

Many of you already know of Justin as the co-founder and executive director of Living Liberally, the just-turned-7 national network of over 300 chapters promoting social organizing for progressive politics. LL is the umbrella for Drinking Liberally -- and Laughing Liberally, Screening Liberally, Eating Liberally, and Reading Liberally. (In the Pacific Northwest, Oregon has 5 DL chapters, Washington has 15, Calgary, Alaska has 2, and Hawaii and Alberta each have 1.)

More about the book when my copy arrives (although you don't have to wait on me; you can always order your own).

(And for those of you who like a mystery to puzzle over while you wait for your own copy of 538 Ways to Live, Work, and Play Like a Liberal: There are 538 electors in the Electoral College, and 538 ways to live liberally in Justin's book.
