Reading Married to the Game, by Chunichi, which is, she said, all about "he cheated on me," "he bought me designer clothes." Normally she doesn't go for this kind of book, but the girls at the senior center she works at read them and she wanted to have something to relate to them with. Before this she read another book by the same author, some science fiction, and, the last good book she read (about two weeks ago) was The Making of "Mammy Pleasant": A Black Entrepreneur in Nineteenth-Century San Francisco. Mammy Pleasnt was a mover and a shaker and the first black woman to ride a street car in San Francisco--she won a suit against Muni. She was also involved in the Underground Railroad.

Her favorite book is Gone with the Wind--Scarlett, she said, was the first real feminist in literature.
