It's time for February's nominations. Guess what! It is a special theme month. This is No Novel Nominations month. This means that we will accept nominations for non-fiction, essays, poetry, drama or anything else as long as it is NOT a novel. You can nominate up to two works that are at least 50 years old and written by a woman. Please state whether or not you can lead the discussion.

Nominations will end the 15th. Please select works that have not been read by this group. Here is the bookshelf link: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books....

Thank you!

Carol and Jamie, thanks for the nominations. It is always interesting when I see the nominations and learn about books I have never heard of.

Are both of you willing to lead the discussion?

My second book has two titles, depending on when and where it was published. Hons and Rebels and Daughters and Rebels by Jessica Mitford.

I picked up a copy of Mary Wollstonecraft's works. My copy has listed A Vindication of the Rights of Men and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. Are the two separate works?

Charlene, those are two separate works. We are to read A Vindication of the Rights of Woman only. The Vindication of the Rights of Men was a political pamphlet. You can find more info here: http://mary-shelley.wikia.com/wiki/Ma...

Of course if anyone wants to read both that is fine.
