reconsidering my reading choices

by benjamin hollon on june 5, 2023

One of the very first articles I planned to post on Musings was a list of my favorite books. It’s now a complete draft, but has sat on my computer for over a year, collecting dust.

I dug it up, planning to brush it up, address any changes, and post it, but noticed something: the only female author to feature on the list is Agatha Christie.

I find this very sadly lacking, and I intend to do what I can to rectify the situation. If you have recommendations of books written by women, I would be very grateful for them (though I don’t promise to read every recommendation I receive).

That is all. Perhaps at some point in the future I can present a more balanced list, but until then the original post that would have appeared here will be kept under wraps.

Liked what you read?

I'm really glad you did! What's next?
