March books

I committed to reading 43 books in 2017 as part of the Perspectives Book Project in an effort to “explore points of view to which I’m otherwise not sufficiently exposed.”

March is designated as Women’s History Month and I chose the above five books to read.

Actually, my original list of books to read this month also included How To Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran and A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, but I didn’t get a chance to read the former and I couldn’t get through (I know, I know) the latter. To be honest, I didn’t give Woolf’s classic much of a chance, but I was getting bored (SORRY!) so I read a synopsis online and believe I get the gist.

I added The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood because it’s been in the news so much lately for having a frightening relevance to today’s politics. I had read it when it came out but I’m happy I re-read it. And, it’s going to be a mini-series on Hulu which I’m looking forward to.

Now I’m on to April: Muslim Heritage Month. I’ll be reading these books:
