1001 Books

Since 2011, I have been reading only books written by women as a form of feminist action suggested by women on Mumsnet. Originally, I just posted monthly lists of the books I was reading on this site. Eventually, I joined Goodreads and starting tracking books there. However, in the past 4 years, I have been struggling with severe depression and anxiety  disorder, which makes everything so much more difficult. Reading is one of the things I have missed the most as I couldn’t even concentrate on collections of short stories or children’s books.  That is when I came across @RowenaMonde list of 1001 books, whilst reading some of her wonderful book reviews at Les Reveries de Rowena 1001 .

I chose to start this list of books to read, rather than just the lists of  books I’ve previously done, as a way of dealing with my depression and anxiety . It is about recognising my  accomplishments, rather than struggling with the list of things I can’t do.

So here is this list of books I want to read. It’s only in the 900s as I do not want it to be a static. I’ve added a few men here and there. Mostly it is a work in progress, like me.

The majority of these books on this come from Rowena Monde (@RowenaMonde), Claire Heuchan (@ClaireShrugged), Sunny Singh (@sunnysingh_n6) and the women of the Mumsnet Feminist board; as well as Elif Shafak’s Black Milk: On Motherhood and Writing, Lucy Mangan’s Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading, and Laura Freeman’s The Reading Cure: How Books Restored my Appetite.
