Books! What I read and loved this year (and what’s next on my list)

This could well be one of my favourite posts of the year because it’s on one of my all time favourite topics – books. As we round out the working year, I thought I’d share what’s been on my bedside table, in my bag, on my iPad and floating around my mind this year.

What’s next on my reading list (hint: a lot)

Coming from Sydney where you never see snow, the novelty doesn’t seem to wear off for me. Although I must admit, the zero to minus two temperatures are pretty bloody cold. Ok, I admit it, it’s freezing! So I have had a day or so to acclimatise before my big conference starts tomorrow (watch out for my next ...

Vagina – small word, big controversy!

Last month, Naomi Wolf released her latest book Vagina: A New Biography. It is a book that brings together cutting edge science, cultural history and the authors personal journey to reframe how we understand female sexuality, and in turn, how we understand women in today’s society. At a time when the commoditization of women’s sexuality appears to be at an all time high – where books about S&M and sexual aggression are selling in the millions and the tabloid media continue to ...
