What I'm reading right now

Susan Faludi's The Terror Dream: Fear and Fantasy in Post-9/11 America. I'm only on page 97, but so far am (unsurprisingly, given her track record) blown away by her brilliance.

Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. A voice of sanity among the nutritional madness of processed food and competing, confusing, and flat-out ridiculous health claims.

Scarlett Thomas's The End of Mr. Y. Smart, fun, will probably make you stay up way too late. I've now gone and added all her other books to my "to read" shelf on Goodreads (which, if you don't already know about it, is a treasure trove of procrastination for book lovers and a mighty fine way to keep track of your reading list).

what Im reading.....Thank you Bitch magazine...

Bitch fest......I just want to say thank you for this collection of great articles from the last 10 years of Bitch. With the Forward written by Margret Cho....how could you go wrong!!!
I have been reading this magazine since it's first issue....when I was still in Highschool...one of my teachers confescated "said issue"...telling me that this was crap...and Anti-Women!!!!! If only she would have looked past the cover to find what Gems were inside!!!! I only hope that future generations of young people will have the pleasure to read this magazine..to know that Critical thinking...and a Feminist outlook...and speaking so that you are heard...is EVERYONES right. This is what Bitch magazine brought to my world. Thanks and keep the "word" coming!!! :)
