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.)

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
