Time Frame: March 2012

March is National Women’s History Month , Music in Our Schools Month, and Poetry Month. For this challenge, you will still be reading Non-Fiction. However, the books should (hopefully - if you're up for the challenge) center around these topics. If you are unable to find a book under these topics, ANY non-fiction book will work! Learn something new and just remember…Smart is sexy!

Easy – 1 books
Medium – 2 books
Hard – 3+ books

Emy (emypt) In because I'm doing research this month.

Women's history because the chapters I am reading are about women's ornamentation in Medieval Rus'. :)

Intelligible Beauty Recent Research on Byzantine Jewellery by Chris Entwistle

Also planning on looking at these two:
Good Impressions Image and Authority in Medieval Seals by Noël Adams Cosmetic sets of Late Iron Age and Roman Britain by Ralph Jackson

Oh if anyone is interested in these, they're free downloads from the British Museum now - links are on the pages of those titles I've managed to edit on GR so far :)
