I find myself unable to resist signing up for some more challenges. I have been making good progress on the ones in progress. I finished the Much Ado About Shakespeare and Centuries challenges. I have only one more book for the Numbers and GLBT challenges. I am considering, however, going up a level on the GLBT Challenge. Given the progress I have made, I thought perhaps I have room for some more challenges.
I have kept my eye on the Women Unbound Challenge for some time. Today I checked out the book Flow: The Cultural Story of Menstruation from my local library as a catalyst for signing up for the challenge. I must say that I feel a little weird reading the book since I am male. But I did see a favorable review of the book by a man on Amazon. Plus the Reader's Bill of Rights says I can read whatever I want to. Anyway, here are some of the books I am considering reading for this challenge:
- Flow: the Cultural Story of Menstruation by Elissa Stein and Susan Kim
- The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women by Jessica Valenti
- Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement by Joyce, Kathryn
- O: The Intimate History of the Orgasm by Jonathan Margolis
- Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters
- Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
- Infidel by A. H. Ali
- Grotesque by N. Kirino
I will also be participating in the Orbis Terrarum Challenge. But no list of possibles for this one. I like to wander through the library picking things at random for this challenge.
