I don't see any women on that cover either. Are you linking to the edition you read?

Amazon's page seems not to match the ones here on Goodreads???

Thanks Mary Ann. That would be something a Goodreads librarian might be able to fix. Perhaps that edition/cover hasn't been entered.

I'll accept that cover.

Because you already have a badge 1 task completed for Card 14, this will have to be punted to Badge 3, book 1. For badge 1 and 2, you can only have one task per card.

The other books are good.
