Books 106 - 109 / 100

106. Breaking Dawn: Twilight Saga, Book 4 - Stephanie Meyer
             Alas, finished with the series.  What will I look forward to reading now? 
107. Heracleidae - Euripides
            A Greek play about the children of Heracles and their persecution by this Dude.  They run to Athens and claim asylum, Dude follows them and wages war, Dude gets his comeuppance.
108. Much Ado About Nothing - William Shakespeare
            A really funny comedy/romance.  I could've cared less about Hero and Claudio, but Beatrice and Benedick were awesome.  I loved their sparring.
109. The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power, and the Future of the World - Michelle Goldberg
                A book about reproductive rights from a feminist perspective.  The author tackles the history of the reproductive rights movement, both for and against, and dedicates chapters to discussing female feticide in India and other Asian countries, HIV/AIDS in Africa, the low birth rates in Europe, and other topics.  Being a feminist, her conclusion is that all these problems, rather than being caused by The Liberals, as the conservatives would have it, can only be solved through the further liberalization of women on a global scale.
