Choice female reading

I saw two 30-something women intently reading on the Red Line.

One was enjoying the geographic thriller Woman.

The other was reading the magazine Bitch.

I had never heard of either, so it was a good learning experience for this man.

Who has some other good CTA reading suggestions for the summer? For males or females.


I just finished Al Gore's new book. There's not much in it I didn't already know, but it's nice to have it all in one place.

"A Mighty Heart" was a great one that I just finished...just in time to see Angelina Joli do it on screen!

"The Known World" Wow, what an amazing book! I couldn't put it down.

I have ripped through Bitter Is The New Black, and Bright Lights, Big Ass, both by Jen Lancaster, A local girl, and scathingly funny to boot!

(and no, I don't know her personally, but I just adore the books!)

I highly recommend BURNING THE MAP or anything else by Laura Caldwell. She's also a local and a very nice person. (I've met her twice at book signings.) Burning BURNING THE MAP is my favorite of hers and incredible summer reading, but A CLEAN SLATE is good if you want something a bit more serious.

Personally, I just bought a copy of RETURN TO PEYTON PLACE. After I'm done with that, I will probably be reading the ultimate summer book-- VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. Trashy, funny, and overwhelmingly entertaining.
