"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."

StaggerLee replied to Paul Jones's discussion I know this sounds weird, but... books for women?
"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…"

"I agree, largely. With one notable, and likely unsurprising objection. "

Penelope replied to Paul Jones's discussion I know this sounds weird, but... books for women?
"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 couldn't read it.  Or Jane Eyre, past the initial surviving-the-orphanage part."

Penelope replied to Paul Jones's discussion I know this sounds weird, but... books for women?
"What reality? Of the books I've read from Brett's lists, over half I've read or re-read without the task being assigned to me, but voluntarily. That includes the Iliad in particular. And I've actually never met a boy who loved…"

Liam Strain replied to Paul Jones's discussion I know this sounds weird, but... books for women?
"Speaking personally - I'm not a fan of redacting historical documents just because some teenagers might be uncomfortable. Honestly, I don't even recall those sections of the book, despite reading it several times - that wasn't even on…"

"Privacy issues might be different depending on the readers' gender. There's wisdom in the TSA's gender and pat-down policies. I fault the father for not redacting the portions of the Diary that concern me. Even the old, common…"

"A desire for preservation of something is not a good indicator of its necessity. Nor is an authoritative approach to teaching, a good indicator of either actual authority, or correctness. But ultimately - I use this to illustrate that I think you…"

"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... "

Naveen replied to Naveen's discussion Information needed for proper Sandbaglifting technique
"Okay Shane I suppose I can start with light weights and go for endurance in the first weeks for gettin accustomed and building basic condition. I will just take my chance of dysbalance and injury. There is not much i can do wrong with that approach."

Shane commented on Steven C.'s group Exercise
"Eh. I'm a big fan of go big. It's impossible to even starve yourself too fast. Atkins induction will burn fat. But it isn't without it's problems."

Shane replied to Naveen's discussion Information needed for proper Sandbaglifting technique
"Not really. Sandbags fall into the odd shaped object category. Like kegs, logs, atlas stones, lawn mowers. Your dead lifting skills aren't going to be a lot of help. Continental lift and overhead press with a sandbag is nothing like a clean and…"
