READING: FOR RAINY DAYS, MONDAYS, & HUMP DAYS…

Today I’m participating in WWW Wednesdays, at Taking on a World of Words Here’s how it works:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off, by Gloria Steinem (10-29 Release Date)

Synopsis:  For decades—and especially now, in these times of crisis—people around the world have found guidance, humor, and unity in Gloria Steinem’s gift for creating quotes that offer hope and inspire action. From her early days as a journalist and feminist activist, Steinem’s words have helped generations to empower themselves and work together.

Covering topics from relationships (“Many are looking for the right person. Too few are trying to be the right person.”) to the patriarchy (“Men are liked better when they win. Women are liked better when they lose. This is how the patriarchy is enforced every day.”) and activism (“Revolutions, like trees, grow from the bottom up.”), this is the definitive collection of Steinem’s words on what matters most. Steinem sees quotes as “the poetry of everyday life,” so she also has included a few favorites from friends, including bell hooks, Flo Kennedy, and Michelle Obama, in this book that will make you want to laugh, march, and create some quotes of your own. In fact, at the end of the book, there’s a special space for readers to add their own quotes and others they’ve found inspiring.

I am a fan of this journalist/feminist/matriarch of change, so I had to pre-order the book.

These are my books from the past month.  What has your reading been like for you?

    Love your review of The Testaments – I keep thinking about it since I finished reading it, such a good book! Also intrigued by The Grammarians, will have to add that to my TBR!

    1. Thanks, Sarah, I am glad to be back to more blogging, too.

      I was worried about The Testaments, too, but I am pleased with how it turned out. Enjoy your read.

      Gloria Steinem is such a great icon, and I love her writing, too.
