I recently bought this shirt, it’s rather awesome.
Let’s be honest – feminism is still needed. When idiots still feel the need to ask women what designer they’re wearing but would never consider asking a man that, we still have a way to go before we’ll all equal. Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, was once asked what designer she liked – her answer was amazing:
So we’re not there yet but we’re still fighting the battle. And feminism is one reason I love my new shirt. There was a time when it was considered unnatural for a woman to be educated. They also said we couldn’t run marathons since we were weaker than men. I’d like to see any man I know try to keep up with Shalane Flanagan – that woman is my running hero! But I digress…
I bought this shirt because I am a huge book nerd, I read constantly and tote a book everywhere I go so I can fill any spare minute with reading. Since I read 117 books in 2014, I’m aiming for 120 books this year. I started January off with a bang by knocking out 18 books. Here are the books I’m currently reading:
I usually read only one book at at time but right now I’m actively reading four books. Chang and Eng is a historical fiction book and it’s quite engrossing – this is my daily reading book, it’s what I read on the metro while I commute to/from work. 1971 is a nonfiction book I’m reading. Bangladesh is one of the countries I work with and so I wanted to learn a little more about the history of this country, unfortunately the book is written much like a textbook so I can only choke down about 20-30 minutes at a time. It’ll take me a while to slug through it. Gentleman Practice is a book of poetry by Buddy Wakefield. Some books of poetry I can read straight through but this is not one of them. The last book is Poetry Daily another book of poetry that I’m working through. As you can see by my list of “currently reading”, I’m a huge book nerd. And clearly, I’m a dangerous woman.
What are you reading?
