Reading Suggestion Request

I’ve noticed that my non-fiction reading habits skew very male (my fiction reading habits skew in the opposite direction). A lot of that is about the gender bias of who publishes in areas I’m most interested in, but this still bothers me and I’d like to put some effort into fixing it.

So, I’d like recommendations for blogs and books by women that you think I’d find interesting as well. Comments are open for once, so feel free to post there or elsewhere as you prefer.

One thought on “Weekly reading post #2

  1. Dave

    Barber, _Women’s Work: the First 20,000 Years_

    Noether, “Idealtheorie in Ringbereichen” ?

    Jacobs, _The Economy of Cities_
    Jacobs, _Systems of Survival, A Dialogue on the Moral Foundations of Commerce and Politics_

    Sobel, _Longitude_

    I’ve also heard good things about Barbara Tuchman’s histories, believe some Mitfords went in for nonfiction, and was led to Goethe by a quotation in Rombauer’s “The Joy of Cooking”.
