“Jezebel” on 75 Books Every Woman Should Read…

Another reading list!  “75 books every woman should read,Jezebel’s response to Esquire’s list of the same, but for men (and filled with “old white dudes” as Jezebel so aptly says.)  The initial list of twenty titles, posted at Jezebel.com on September 18th, generated 388 comments that add another 55 books to the list….and nice to know that Austen’s Pride & Prejudice made the original 20 list! [and see the Esquire slide show… it is a wonderful compilation that includes Faulkner, Steinbeck, Mark Twain, Raymond Carver, Kerouac, etc, but I find only ONE woman in the mix:  Flannery O’Connor’s A Good Man is Hard to Find.]

One thought on ““Jezebel” on 75 Books Every Woman Should Read…

  1. Oh lordy….now my list is even longer. Can I ever get around to reading all of them before my eyes quit on me?

    Men would do well to ask us what we think they should read. They would be so much better off in the long run! ;)
