Required Reading

11 Dec

I feel like I’m up to my ears with things I need or want to read. Today, I have a book club discussing A Casual Vacancy. I’m so curious to see what the gals have to say about this J.K. Rowling book.  Alongside that, I came across an interesting Huffington Post article of the Best Pieces That Should Be Required Reading for Women in 2012. While I want to get through all of them, my top 4 are:

1) “The Ripped, Bikini-Clad Reverend” 
The Rev. Dr. Amy Richter, New York Times Magazine

“How many of us would put on a two-piece swimsuit and participate in a fitness pageant for “personal enrichment”? This Episcopal priest — yes, a priest — did.”

2“It’s Different for ‘Girls'” 
Emily Nussbaum, New York Magazine

“Nussbaum told us “Girls” was worth watching. She told us Lena Dunham was talented, insightful and brilliant. She was right on both counts.”

3) “I Know Why the Fat Lady Sings” 
Caitlin Moran, Wall Street Journal

“If you’ve never really thought about overeating as the “addiction of choice” for women, it may because no one’s talking about it. The author of “How to Be a Woman” suggests it’s time to change that.”

4) “At the Pinnacle of Hillary Clinton’s Career” 
Rachael Combe, ELLE

“Before Texts From Hillary, before the beer drinking in Cartagena, before the dancing in Malawi, this article pointed out something the world was finally starting to realize: Hillary Clinton is pretty awesome.”
