I need to read 2 more books to finish my Women Unbound Challenge. I've been doing them in conjunction with the Women's Book Salon I run at work. I wonder what other books I could use to build a theme around Half the Sky? I'd be open to suggestions if you have them. Thanks,AMC

I haven't read Half a Sky. So jealous. You make me want to pull it out and get it read.

A Thousand Splendid Suns is on my wishlist - at the top of it! I actually have that book here somewhere, but it's is one of the sealed boxes. I'll be looking forward to your thoughts!
