When I first met my husband, I told him I wasn’t a feminist (not as such). He said I was wrong, and later added that if it had been true, he would never have married me.
Turns out he was right, and never am I more aware of that than when I notice things like these Tumblr posts crossing my screen and I want to stand up and cheer for all my sisters.

Listen to the Kids! 12 Memorable Novels With Child Narrators
If we listen closely, children can remind us of what is truly important in life and refresh our jaded, grown-up viewpoints, Off the Shelf says. ”

In this hilarious and moving tale of one girl’s fight for freedom of expression, Ella Minnow Pea must act to save her friends, family, and fellow citizens from the encroaching totalitarianism of her town’s city council, which has banned the use of certain letters of the alphabet.

The Indianapolis Colts quarterback is the NFL’s unofficial librarian as he constantly recommends books to his teammates, Kevin Clark writes in The Wall Street Journal.
In the same way that Oprah Winfrey has become known for vaulting books she likes to popularity across the country, Luck can make his favorite reads become the talk of the Colts locker room. Some of the books he recommends are for inspiration, players say, if a teammate is going through a tough time. Others are passed on simply because Luck enjoyed leafing through them.
“He’s a voracious reader and he likes talking about it,” said center Khaled Holmes, a beneficiary of Luck’s penchant for recommending his favorite titles.
Tribune Montana resident Gary Tallman sorts his firewood by colour each spring and uses the raw materials to create stunning firewood mosaics. Each woodpile takes at least 20 hours to build.
THIS & THAT
The venture will be “first and foremost a bookshop, but one that will also offer customers a glass of whiskey or wine if they want a tipple while they sit down to read a book.”
