"Seven Daughters and Seven Sons by Barbara Cohen and Bahija Lovejoy is a great book for a young girl (or boy, but really great for a girl). This is probably where I got my first taste of a strong girl/woman character in fiction when I was younger,…"

"For older readers Louise Erdrich's Love Medicine is great and for sci/fi lovers, Ursula K. Le Guin's  The Left Hand of Darkness would be a fun read."

"Yeah, Margaret Atwood is also a great suggestion. I'd add Alice Walker and Eudora Welty to the list. I also think that tho' it's not a gender-specific novel, The Scarlet Letter is a great read."

"Thank you Chip.  I had come to fear that this had been the most futile question I've ever asked. You have made it, almost the most futile. Thank you for an actual answer."

"The path I take is to try and inspire interest in things that will help them down the line and let them naturally gravitate toward reading/movies/media material that reinforces because they want to. The problem I have with "assigning"…"

"Hi Paul: I think it's good to promote reading right away. Just getting a child to love reading in the first place is a wonderful thing. Many kids first get hooked on young adult fiction because it's written for them and they can relate to…"

"One of the reasons I'm poorly read by Brett's standards is that I read more "college-level" material when "normal" kids read the novels Brett recommends. I had the chance to re-read those works in college, and read a…"

"As a man, I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but I'm currently obsessed with Anne of Green Gables. Definitely a classic girls book."

"I think I see what you mean.  A good reason not to teach children about religion either then, lest they gain a false familiarity with radical and complicated theologies. Wouldn't want them to think their thoughts for them... "

First date: success not optional but mandatory

I have a date tomorrow night with a girl I met online. While this may sound like great news and the answer to lifelong joy, I want to make sure that this leads to a second date, and that I don't make a "death move" to end all chances of seeing her again. This is the early cultivation phase of a relationship, the kind of relationship I have been praying for , that leads to romantic love, marriage and procreation.  All of my experience with the few dating I have has been unsuccessfulSo, at this…See More
