Here's what I'm reading now:
It's pretty good so far. It goes back and forth between the story of the 19th wife of Brigham Young, and the story of a modern day 'lost-boy'--a boy who has been kicked off the polygamy compound by the prophet for, you know, doing things like being young and a boy and thereby posing a threat to the old prophet's chances of marrying yet another underage girl. In the book, the boy, Jordan's, mother, herself a 19th wife, has been accused of shooting her husband in the chest at point-blank rage. Did she do it? It remains to be seen.
Jezebel had a fun post today. It was a response to a list composed by Esquire online of the 75 books 'every man should read'. The list contained ONE book by a woman and only four books by men of color. So the gals over at Jezzie came up with their own list of 75 books every woman should read.
They left off THE HANDMAID'S TALE by Margaret Atwood, a sin for which I will never forgive them, but that's beside the point.
I think it's a great list and I will definitely be picking up some of the books on it that I haven't read yet. But what I really would have liked to see?
Are you ready? Are you sitting down?
75 Books Every Person Should Read.
Ahahahaha! Wait! Don't call Phyllis Schlafley. I was JUST KIDDING! I would never expect men and women to actually be interested in, let alone find worth in, the same books. What a joke! Preposterous! Whew! Someone must have slipped me a big glass of Arbor Mist before I came up with that nutty idea.
