I stopped by the library a few days ago to stock up on reads for the week, and this is what I came home with.

It wasn't until I was home, trying to decide which one to start with, that I realized I had picked up three books, totally by chance, about strong, intelligent females, trying to forge their own path in a man's world. Or was it by chance? Perhaps our librarian had set them all out with grave intention, where they'd be most likely to be picked up and perused.

I started with the one about Albert Einstein's first wife, and could not put it down. But, I must warn you,  if you do choose to read this, you will never be able to think of Mr. Einstein in quite the same way again! Now I'm halfway through Alice Hoffman's The Marriage of Opposites, and loving it too. Looking forward to The Whip, based on the true life story of Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst, who spent most of her life passing herself off as a man in the old west.

What about you? If you've read any great strong-girl-books, please let us know!

Aunt Gus Gus was here this week, for the first time since last fall, and she came "bear-ing" gifts!

A belated Christmas Present for Calvin

 Then we went straight from that to an early birthday celebration!

Calvin thinks Aunties are pretty cool!
