For Women’s History Month: Must Read Books — Part Two

We are back today with part two of the Must Read List of Books for Women’s History Month.

It has been an exciting month for me — reading and discovering. I am reading books by women or for women and learning more things about myself. And how unsettled I currently am. But more about that as the year progresses, and I do. 

Have you read part one of the “Must Read List of Books for Women’s History Month.” If you have not, check it out here. Remember, these books are not only to be read during March — you can read them at any time. I suggest you choose a few of these books and read them this year.

For March, I am currently reading “Becoming BulletProof” by Evy Poumpouras — I will do a takeaway article listing my takeaways from the book. It is a nicely written book filled with some valuable information. This book is part biography, but I believe it does have practical takeaways.
