Buy a crime novel on International Woman's Day

"International Women's Day (Thursday 8 March) is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development."

I've seen very little on this in the local press, so I thought I'd share it here with you all. Aside from spending time with and appreciating the woman I know best, tonight I plan on heading out and buying a book by a female crime author. Not sure who just yet, I'll see what takes my fancy.

How are you choosing to mark this day?

EDIT: Ended up getting two novels, both firsts in PI series: BALTIMORE BLUES by Laura Lippman, and PEEPSHOW by Leigh Redhead.

American women? Huh? I think this may be another one of those mojito moments ...

What's wrong with American women, huh, Hatadi?

You... kangaroo... something, something.

I have no cutting insult for an Aussie. You guys are just too cool.

That's it! Crude coffee! The final piece in the puzzle of global warming. Forget about your preaching, Gore, what we really need is to drive the planet's vehicles and industry with heavily ground, dark beans.

Crude coffee. The saviour of humanity.

THank you, Daniel.

Oddly enough, I'm hoping to receive a kitted-out DeLorean that lets me travel through time for a present tomorrow morning--delivered on a big tray with a cup of light sweet crude coffee....

I will probably get coffee.

I actually only learned about this today, when my partner, who is German, mentioned that he'd be taking his mother to a party she and her friends were having in celebration of the day. He was surprised that I was unfamiliar with it, that it isn't celebrated here. Maybe that will change.

Unless you have a kitted-out DeLorean that lets you travel through time, I assume I should now say .. happy birthday!

I'm going to celebrate International Women's Day by turning 44. Something I do every year, only it's a different number each time.

That's a cool tradition, Daniel. Maybe I'll go by myself a book by a female crime writer as a birthday present...
