Re: What are you reading?

I'm currently going through the archives of a webcomic called Able Boddy - I don't understand all of it, but what I do understand is funny.

Just finished Equality and Revolution: Women's Rights in the Russian Empire, 1905 - 1917. Am reading a collection of short stories called Baltimore Noir. And, in the car, I'm listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

I am reading a novella from the anthology Forbidden Planets.

Am I to assume that's a very thin book, or are there any surprises? If so, it would interestingly more or less correspond to the Suffrage movement in the United States that led to voting rights (and a sexual revolution) in the 1920s.

It's not all that thin. I was researching the status of women in the legal profession, but I skimmed the rest of the book, and the women's rights movement did somewhat correspond to the suffrage movement in the US and elsewhere. My Russian grandmother was studying law when she and my grandfather got married in September 1917. She never graduated, because they fled Russia ASAP after the October Revolution.

Assuming you mean Harry Potter… several times. I'm not crazy about audio books, but I'm having fun experiencing an old favorite in a new way. How 'bout you?

That's fascinating and wonderful. I had no idea there was such a movement in Russia at that time.
