Tag Archives: Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman

I need book suggestions. Please help.

I’m needing some suggestions on what to read. I’m looking around my house at my bookshelves and am realizing that I don’t feel like reading any of those books yet. I am currently in the process of reading two books 1) Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman by Phyliss Chesler and 2) Off the Record by Elizabeth White.

My tastes in books are rather unusual…I tend to read just about anything as long as it keeps my interest. I usually read the classics, with some chick-lit when I don’t want to think. I also tend to read non-fiction on whatever subject strikes my fancy at the time or if I’m doing research on whatever topic is of interest at the time. Lately I have been reading Christian Fiction and blogging about it. I like to read young adult and children’s books also.

So anyway I was wondering what you, my readers, have to suggest for me to read. I’m running out of books and need help. Let me rephrase that…I’m running out of books that I feel like reading at the moment and need help. I don’t think I will ever run out of books because I keep buying more and haven’t read all that I already own.

So dear, dear readers…help me. Help me find some books to read. All suggestions are most welcome.

Also don’t forget about my book giveaway that ends Friday at midnight, October 12. I am giving away a copy of Demon: A Memoir by Tosca Lee. You can read about the author and the first chapter of Demon on my Feature Authors page. Saturday morning I will randomly draw a winner. This contest is open to those with a U.S. address only.


Books I’m Reading and Wanting to Read

I am currently reading two books and working on more. The first is Scoop (The Occupational Hazards Series #1) by Rene Gutteridge. I’m about a 1/3 of the way through and have actually laughed a couple of times. That is a good thing because I tend to be too serious.

The second book is Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson. Hollywood arrived in the mail today and I was so excited I had to start reading it. I am loving it so far! Lisa Samson and this book will be on my feature author page in November so I’m happy to be reading it. Don’t worry, I’ll have a book review before then.

I am waiting for Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman by Phylis Chesler. A friend of mine is reading this book and kept talking about how excellent it is so her, another friend and I will be reading it together and then discussing it. It should be interesting. Our next book to read will be The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan. That book will bring some interesting discussion. I have been wanting to read Mystique for several years. I tried reading it when my youngest was a baby but kept falling asleep due to the fact I had a baby and was getting no sleep. Now that kiddos are a little older my interest has been awakened. (Ha. Ha.)

Let’s see…I don’t see any other books in my immediate future. I do want to read Uglies (Uglies Trilogy, Book 1) at some point in time. I checked it out from the library a few weeks ago but didn’t get around to reading it.

Oh! I know what I want to read! Best Friends kiddo is reading the Dear America books. One of the books K has read is My America: Our Strange New Land, Elizabeth’s Jamestown Colony Diary, Book One (My America). K enjoyed it so much that I wanted to read it also. I love finding someone who loves to read as much as I do especially someone as young as K.

I am all about reading. I am starting to see my kiddos start to enjoy reading. They love reading the Bone graphic novels. So does R (Best Friends kiddo). When R is over at our house, it is not unusual to see them sitting around reading Bone. (This is of course after they have all gotten hurt or in trouble and have to settle down). Anyway, back to books and reading.

I love to read. If I do not have a book started and another planned I don’t know how to act. I start to get panicky and start looking for something to read. It’s like the world is falling apart. Books and reading are a part of me. Books are my passion. I don’t think I can go a day without reading…as a matter of fact, I will schedule it into my day if I have to. That is how important reading is to me.

I am always looking for new reading material so feel free to leave suggestions.
