I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like to. Between my new DS, my Super Mario Sunshine game, and fiddling with Kubuntu, I haven’t taken the time to sit down and read a book. But I did start one yesterday.
I started The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan. I’ve wanted to read this book forever, but I never got around to it. They didn’t have it at the library (Auburn Hills or Saginaw) so I had a hard time getting my hands on it. Finally, last spring, we found it in the mall in Midland. I bought a copy and have finally picked it up to read it. I’m just through the preface and starting the first chapter, so I’ll tell what I think of it in future posts.
It has lots of controversy surrounding it. I do love reading controversial books, so I thought this one would be a good one to pick up and read. It also has a very important role in how women are percieved today. My mother has read this book, and I want to take a look at it, and get into it as much as she has.
