Spinning Straw Into Gold

Over the weekend I saw a book in the Alumnae section of the bookstore that I immediately purchased.  Following the request of Professor Grobstein, I'm posting a link to the authors website, so everyone can take a look at it.  The book is called "Spinning Straw Into Gold: What Fairy Tales Reveal About the Transformations in a Woman's Life" and it's by Joan Gould.  I'm only about 60 pages into it, but so far it is fantastic.  I highly recommend it to anyone else who was sad when our discussion on Fairy Tales ended!!!  I was in the bookstore today, and I didn't see another copy, but since it is by an alumna, I'm sure they have more copies hidden in the back! 

(This is comment is being put under this topic because I figured that way everyone would see it!)
