“It is not all books that are as dull as their readers.” -Henry David Thoreau
I asked for feedback on compiling a list of books to read so things could be planned out further ahead (and so people can qualify for free Amazon shipping). While The Purity Myth was a really popular choice, it was brought to my attention by HDW that is is also out of print. So my solution is for us to put The Purity Myth on the list for the following three months, which gives everyone plenty of time to find a used copy.
The schedule will be:
Jan. 30 – A People’s History of the United States (Zinn)
Feb. 27 – Panic (Lewis)
Mar. 27 – The Commitment (Savage)
Sometime in March, I’ll compile another list of book suggestions and figure out the schedule for April, May, and June. One of those months we will read The Purity Myth, so go ahead and order it if you can.
For “What Is Marriage For?” on Dec. 25th, HDW has generously offered to host. CeeDee, Brit, and I will write reviews. I’m still working on my one nonblogger friend. He’s currently claiming that not owning the book is preventing him from writing a review. I think he’s just looking for an excuse.
