I'm going to spend this forthcoming year aiming to exclusively read works only by women and predominately about women. This is based on the attitude of Sheila Jeffreys who says she has read mostly women based works for the past 30 pus years.

What would people add to my list so far? I'm aiming for minimum one key text or classic per month plus my normal audiobooks and any additional books i pick up.

I want a list to keep me focused. i love starting books but don't always finish them. This year I'm getting finished! :D

Do it! As I said, one classic book per month should be doable. I'm thinking to have a cut off point for social media in the evening, then I focus only on books. Or I give myself a time limit per day for surfing then I have to read. I live reading but I get sucked into the wonderful vortex of Ovarit! πŸ˜‚ I'm going to have separate lists for ebook, audiobook and maybe even real book. Ebook for during the day, audiobooks for housework and running then real books for just before bed. I'm even going to have classics for morning time and maybe fiction or pop psychology or biography for the evening. Easier to focus then. The Women's Declaration of Human Rights are great for their reviews of classics. Good luck!!

That's a great plan! Haha since i read a lot of fiction, I'll try to allocate one book per month too (for feminist books) and read a minimum of 1 hour everyday. Chunk size plans sounds doable otherwise I'll just overwhelmed myself :p
