Where do I begin? Love, love, love this book! I also visited the blog that spawned it, and so should you! As I mentioned previously, I've never read a book about someone I agree so much with before! Feminists aren't required to agree on every point, and so I don't mind when I don't. I do... Continue Reading →
Sorry for the long absence. I did realize, however, that I've been way, way less than attentive to this blog lately. I had given up the last one because of the heavy need for research and the tight schedule I'd made and promised myself not to do that again. But I also failed at being... Continue Reading →

I suppose it boils down to being about the principles that feminism espouses. Interestingly, this does not limit us to non-fiction. There is a lot of great fiction out there, what...

If you aren't familiar with Christopher Buckley's work, check out Thank You for Smoking first. It would have been harder to take if I didn't already have an idea of what to expect from this particular satirist. Knowing what I was getting myself into, I could have a lot of fun with this book!
