Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

Another Book Listie Leaves the Ladies Out: WSJ edition

via twitter-er frausallybenz:

Ahh, summer. When a massive chunk of the books people want to read on the beach have bare legs on the cover and feature pink and blue lettering, but are not worthy of mention by the tastemakers. Or something like that ;)

Today's culprit: the venerable, yet stuffy, WSJ. Although the Wall Street Journal summer book list has some good options, only two out of the nineteen are penned by she-folk. And they are both in the fiction section. Come on, people! This is getting ridiculous. Also, it looks like VERY FEW are written by POC, although obviously you can't tell that by names alone. Sigh.
