Reading Challenge: Women Unbound

Late in '09 I found out about the existence of reading challenges, where you set a goal for yourself to read a certain number of books about a certain topic within a time frame. I like the idea of having another way of keeping track of what I'm reading, and sharing those books with a community of like minded people. Women Unbound is my first one!

Probably the best part of this challenge for me is that, even though I'm starting a few months late, I really don't think it'll be difficult for me to complete the suffragette level - read eight book, at least three of them non-fiction. Books that meet the qualification are those that can fall under the banner of "women's studies."

This is going to be fun!

I've been on the fence for this challenge for probably a month. I think I've avoided taking the plunge because I don't have any specific ideas for books yet even though a read several last year that would definitely have worked. Any idea what you'll read?

I get a lot of my recommendations for new books through the Amelia Bloomer Project, which compiles a list of children's and YA feminist-themed lit (fiction and non-fiction) for ALA. Some of my favorite books of the year came from there - books that I haven't really seen recognized on any other best-of lists. They also have a blog that posts the nominees as they are nominated so it's easy to stay current with the list.

I don't have any specific titles I'm looking forward to because I'm so rarely on top of upcoming releases :-( I'm trying to get better at that so I can grab books as soon as they're available at the library, rather than waiting until I see other people review a title before I even put in my request for it.
