Our Bodies, Ourselves for the New Century - Boston Women's Health Book Collective (1998)
Black Like Me - John Howard Griffin (1960)
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte (1847)
The Winter of Our Discontent - John Steinbeck (1961)
Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck (1937)
The Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Stories - Oscar Wilde (1890s)
Poems - Maya Angelou (1969-1983)
Wouldn't Take Nothing for my Journey Now - Maya Angelou (1993)
The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway (1926)
Little Women - Louisa May Alcott (1868)
Hunger Pains; The Modern Women's Tragic Quest for Thinness - Mary Pipher, Ph.D. (1995)
White Oleander - Janet Fitch (1999)

All that and a purple leather belt for less than $10. I'm going to need some more cinder blocks...
