Feminist book club

I wrote about this on my books blog: I'm planning on reading a few feminist classics over the next year. I mentioned this at the meeting last Saturday and a few people were keen to join in (in addition to the meetings every three months, we might get together in between and discuss what we're reading). Books that I've thought of/others have suggested so far (some classics, some more recent) are:
  • Simone de Beauvoir: The second sex
  • Germaine Greer: The female eunuch
  • Shulamith Firestone: The dialiectic of sex
  • Mary Wollstonecraft: A vindication of the rights of woman
  • Betty Friedan: The feminine mystique
  • Kate Millett: Sexual politics
  • Virginia Woolf: Three guineas
  • Sheila Rowbotham: Woman's consciousness, man's world
  • Elisabeth Badinter: XY, de l'identit√© masculine (not sure whether this is available in English translation)
  • Susan Faludi: The terror dream
  • Deborah Siegel: Sisterhood, interrupted

Suggestions welcome, and anyone who wants to read along, that would be great.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to select a proper partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
