Hi everyone,
glad to see so many people have joined up for the Women in SF reading club! Just a reminder that it is time to start reading The Female Man, by Joanna Russ.

I am still trying to get my hands on a copy, but I have made a few enquiries to secondhand book shops and I am feeling pretty confident I will have a copy in the next few days :) While I was looking I did find copies of Russ' Picnic on Paradise, and The Adventures of Alyx to keep me amused until The Female Man turns up. Both are under 200 pages long, which I am pretty thrilled about given my new-media generation attention span (and, you know, that PhD I am writing up!)

While I was book shopping I also found a cheap copy of Introducing Feminism (you know, the light, comic book style ones) which was sitting in the 'self help' section--this amused me greatly but seemed somehow appropriate, after all feminism has certainly been a great help to me :)

Got one! My library called today and I went right away and picked it up! : ) This is the first time I've really read feminist literature I think.

How is the book discussion working?

I'll be joining you from Wisconsin.

Where are you living? : ) Wisconsin is nice. It's been so cold this summer though!! We do however, have awesome thunder storms! ^_^

ok, sounds good. This will be really interesting!
