A Naked Feminist: Essential Reading.

I thought I'd make a list of all the wonderful books(and one magazine) out there that have enriched my life. There's no way I could possibly name them all, so here are the basics.

The cooking bible. I don't cook much, but when I do, I find the recipe in here.

The best of Bust magazine.

It's a classic. From a literary standpoint, I feel it's perfect book.

This book is worth is just for the marvelous images in it- not to mention the wonderful advice and step-by-step instructions.

Don't straighten your curls, celebrate them!

I love Frida Kahlo! This book provides an insight into her unique work.

David Sedaris' hilarious collection of short stories.

A hilarious and haunting graphic novel.

Don't know who Ana Mendieta is? If you have any interest in art, you should!

The revised edition of the classic. Every single girl out there should be given one before puberty.

My second-favorite poet.

My favorite poet. The edition has all of her poems, unedited.

A friend loaned me this two and a half years ago. I still haven't given it back.

I read it for school when I was 14, and it still makes me cry.

Feminist response to pop culture. The Ms. Magazine for my generation.
