Crafting my Winter Reading List
Getting cozy with the female greats
By Maggie Grimason [ Tue Nov 10 2015 11:34 AM ]
I want to preface the following with the assertion that I am not in the habit of taking Buzzfeed quizzes. Never the less, this morning, still bleary eyed and sitting at my table, coffee in hand, I numbly scrolled through social media feeds that led me to a Buzzfeed quiz.
It begged the simple question: How many of the greatest books by women have you read?
Who curated this list? I have no idea, but it contains the literary heavyweights you'd expect as well as some contemporary writers that deserve the homage of avid readers. I took the quiz, checking off the books I knew and loved from the long list and clicked the button to get my results.
25. 25 out of 102. I pride myself on being well read, so I was understandably a little disappointed. Buzzfeed gave me this consolation, "maybe you haven't fully explored the world of books written by women, but the good news is that you now have so many wonderful books to read." No shit.
I have a friend who once spent a whole year reading only books written by women. I'm planning on a spending this winter doing the same. Thanks, Buzzfeed.
First up: White Teeth by Zadie Smith.
Take the quiz here.

The Daily Word In Bossy Vaginas, Scottish Geese and Expensive Chile
By Amelia Olson [ Thu Feb 5 2015 2:54 PM ]
Your vagina is a boss!
If you’re a teen who texts and drives, a New Mexican college student is in the process of releasing an app that will track every move you make while operating a vehicle!
The University of Vermont acknowledges a third gender and allows students to be identified by their chosen first name, even if they have not legally changed their name yet. They also honor preferred pronouns. AKA VERMONT RULES.
The woman who famously called Angelina Jolie a “talentless brat” (um, hasn’t she seen Hackers?) stepped down from her position at Sony.
A totally irrelevant piece about Scottish geese.
There is no price too high to keep us from our chile, but dammit if we don’t get more rain.
