This is a Thursday meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company to shine a light on those books we’ve had on our TBR piles so long that they’re practically part of the furniture.
To join in, just post about a book you’ve been really meaning to read and then hop on over here and link up. I love looking at everyone else’s TBR piles, so you can see a full list of the other participants over there too.
This is For Her Own Good: Two Centuries of the Experts’ Advice to Women by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English.
I’ve had this on my TBR for a while now, but my lack of masochism has stopped me from reading it so far. It’s a look at the changing attitudes towards women through how they are told to live their lives and it’s highly likely it’s going to irritate me quite a lot.
I do want to read it soon-ish though – I love reading about the changing of social views.
