Must Read List

One of the greatest issues in dealing with the feminist information that we are flooded with on a daily basis is a lack of information for conservative women. We are taught feminism in public schools, in college, and through mainstream media. This is a list of books that I have found helpful in my studies, my favorite books. The topics of the books range from feminism to cookbooks to sex and intimacy. Take a minute to look through a subject that interests you. If you are interested in a title click over to my Bookstore tab at the top of the page. As I read more, I will add to the list so be sure to check back often!
