*taps mic* Hello? Are you out there?

So as some of you may or may not know, this December is #ReadWomen month. It's currently getting big on Twitter & Tumblr and I already have the start of my book list made out - some of them are even dusty books ;D (The Color Purple, The Handmaid's Tale, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Black Mamba Boy to name a few)

Will anyone else be reading along with this theme?

No, sorry, should have explained better - it's to read any works by female authors.

I personally find it especially important for me to do this year after the Scott Bergstrom hoo ha recently.

I just realized that all the books I've read in November were written by women. I could hold to that for another month.

That's very well done Paisley - even if it were unintentional ;)

My list is just getting longer and longer, I may need more than a month and a small lottery win (for the purchasing of some of these books :S)

I reckon we could all do with some lotto winnings.

'Addiction? what addiction?'

Tell me about it, I put aside a little for one ticket each month then start thinking of how awesome a library I could have ;)
