Bewitching Languor

Fascinating Womanhood

Are you unhappy in your marriage? Perhaps it is because you haven’t seen it through the eyes of your man. Become a fascinating woman by putting your man’s needs first.  By paying attention and reacting properly to your husband, you can become a fascinating woman and exude femininity. Essentially, this is all about shutting up and letting the man be a man. (Cuz, they can’t if you are too busy harping on them.)

We first posted this back on ALB a long time ago. I came across it in our donation pile and felt we needed a re-do.  Since it was a while back,  I think there are enough of you ladies out there that need a refresher on your lady skills. You can read the original post here.

I’ll be in the back working on my “bewitching languor”.

Widows and Widowhood: A Creative Approach to Being Alone

Submitter: This book was an excellent choice for a public library back in 1977. Unfortunately, the data and info are no longer accurate. I did enjoy the section on same sex relationships. It seemed progressive for ’77. I enjoyed many of the passages in this book. Is it awful? Maybe not. But this was the only book this library had on the topic. Time to update.

Holly: The preface starts off with a statistic from 1971. Already a turn-off! Also, the title implies creativity, so when you start seeing all those charts and data tables, it’s disappointing. It’s too old to be useful, and his has a giant, air-bubbled piece of tape all the way across the cover.

Everywoman’s Legal Guide: Protecting Your Rights at Home, In the Workplace, and in the Marketplace

Submitter: There were two copies of this 80’s legal advise book in my library system. When a colleague saw it, she jokingly remarked “knowing women’s laws, those might still be current!” Well, let’s hope not.

Holly: Narry a computer mentioned, I’m sure!
