Hmm, when you say women from 'history' I presume they have to not still be alive. I'll have to say Susan B. Anthony since she was so instrumental in the women's movement and suffrage.

Taste Me by Tamara Hogan (2 copies)

I love all different sorts of music, but lately the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Santigold and Arcade Fire have been especially inspirational. Great interview, I'd really like to read this book!

The music depends on what kind of 'inspiring' I need. Cleaning? Something I can bop around to and sing along (loudly!) with. The soundtrack to Mama Mia! works well for this. Driving? I love to listen to Country radio. Writing or just enjoying quiet time? Classical, like Pachelbel's Canon or Sleepsong by Secret Garden. Dancing? 80's alternative.

My indulgence was applying for teaching jobs in every single state in order to try to get out of this miserable Pennsylvania weather....and my indulgence in sending my resumes out led to an awesome 8th grade Language Arts teacher in Arizona!

I always find it irritating when people start complaining about a particular author's vision. There is a reason why these books are under "Fiction" - author has the right to change words or make them up.

What lurks beneath my city ...well, of course all creatures come and go, but a particular emphasis on shapeshifters, vampires, even some fairies and such - not the happy kind, but more the evil ones. Cities are good for predators. So many people to prey upon

Winners have been contacted and have until 11:59PM US Eastern Time on Wednesday April 6, 2011 to respond or The Qwillery will very randomly choose another winner or winners.

It's Women's History Month! - March 9, 2011

March is Women's History Month.  U.S. Presidents have been issuing proclamations declaring March Women's History Month since 1987. You can read the text of this year's Proclamation by clicking here.

You can read more about Women's History Month at the National Women's History Project and the Library of Congress.

To help celebrate Women's History Month, I'm giving away a copy of Women Know Everything: 3,241 Quips, Quotes & Brilliant Remarks by Karen Weekes (generously provided by Quirk Books). I'm a huge fan of quote books and this is a real gem.

It's Women's History Month! - March 9, 2011With more than 3,000 quotations on fashion, family, science, art, history, love, laughter, and more, this massive compilation proves once and for all that women know everything! It’s full of wit, wisdom, and inspiration from a host of legendary women—everyone from Abigail Adams and Eleanor Roosevelt to Oprah Winfrey, Donna Karan, Tina Fey, Margaret Cho, Debbie Stoller, and others. Here’s what they say about:

• Fashion: “I base most of my fashion sense on what doesn’t itch.”—Gilda Radner

• Men and Women: “Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backward and in high heels.”—Faith Whittlesey

• Careers: “Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you it doesn’t love you anymore.”—Lady Gaga

First published in 2007, this revised edition has been updated with a beautiful new design and an assortment of new quotations from leading luminaries—everyone from Susan Boyle to Sarah Palin. Women Know Everything! is a superb gift for thoughtful women of all ages.

Women Know Everything! has a helpful index of individuals in the back and the topics are alphabetical. It's very nicely done!
