    Got a book a fellow poster here on USMB really ought to read?

    I'll start.

    I'm reading this one now and I can't help thinking 'Wow, Maddie really needs to read this'

    Carrie Lukas' book might be worth reading, JB.

    I do appreciate your dedication to my continuing growth. I'll tell you what. I'll read it, if you agree to read one of the following:

    Lemme know if you are interested, and if so, which book you chose.....I'll re-read it too. I haven't cruised the feminist lit aisle much lately.

    But I warn you ahead of time...these sorts of books do not bring out my kinder, gentler side.

    Read Feminine Mystique a long time ago.

    Carrie Lukas also recommends it.

    Betty Friedan's book doesn't support your bizarre conception of feminism.

    I was 12 the last time I read "The Feminine Mystique", JB. Is that your choice, and do we have a deal?

    It's an easier read than the other two..."The Second Sex" especially is heavy lifting.

    JB, I cannot add to my "must read" list more'n this. I have to order "The Feminine Mystique"; Lukas' book should be more readily available. Let's say we agree to have the books completed by Dec 31st and to discuss them in January?

    Or did you want to go chapter by chapter?

    The Feminine Mystique is kind of out-dated. Equality has become a reality. The book was geared toward a time when women were relegated to a life of child-bearing and that of a subservient housewife. It was groundbreaking when published but those days are thankfully long gone.
