Indiana | George Sand
post image
Pickpick

I came across the name George Sand reading the fragments of Dostoyevsky's diary. He explains how she's one of the most important French authors, sells more books than Victor Hugo, but because she is a woman who writes about women hasn't given the consideration she deserves. Indiana is beautifully written, a romance about women's position in society, mixed with the author's fascinating political opinions in general. Totally recommend it

... be, I challenge you ever to establish any sympathy between him and me. If such a man wants to instruct me about truths that I do not know, he will not succeed for it will not be in my power to have faith in him "

What Is the Women's Rights Movement? | Deborah Hopkinson, Who Hq
post image
Mehso-so

They tried to pack in as much as possible and in doing so left out some important stuff in my opinion. It‘s a great glancing overview of the idea of the Women‘s Movement and they did an ok job on the start of the movement. This could have been so much better and still been within the scope of what these books are. Kind of disappointed in this one.

Bound by Ice: A True North Pole Survival Story | Rich Wallace, Sandra Neil Wallace
post image
Pickpick

I just recently ordered this nonfiction book for my class library. It is a fairly quick read that details an attempt to reach the North Pole by George De Long, captain of the Jeannette. After leaving Alaska and a year spent trapped in the ice, the ship sinks, and it becomes a survival story as the crew heads to Siberia over ice and by boat. It includes excerpts from journals, illustrations, and photos of artifacts.
