About the Library

You can read more about the impetus for this project in the first post, but I decided to start a women’s library for myself after realizing that, even with an undergrad degree in English literature and almost two decades of focusing my reading on works written by women, there’s still a great deal of 20th century fiction written by women that I’m unfamiliar with (with which I am unfamiliar? Must not end sentences with prepositions, even in a format so casual as that of a blog). My initial goal is to collect a core of 500 books for the library. The blog will follow as I collect book ideas for the library, hunt for those books, get distracted along the way, and, of course, read what I’m collecting!
