Reading

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.
