Review: Decline of the English Murder by George Orwell

So, I never read anything from George Orwell. Required reading isn’t a thing in the Netherlands, well depending on what level of education you do, so I never read any classics as a child/teenager, apart from Little Women. I never really wanted to read anything from Orwell, I don’t know why but I never did.…… Continue reading Review: Decline of the English Murder by George Orwell

Review: Swimming in the Steno Pool by Lynn Peril

Oh Lynn Peril… I love her books so much, and this one hasn’t disappointed me! Millions of women have held the position of secretary, alternately lauded as a breakthrough opportunity and excoriated as dead-end busy work. From the female pioneers who infiltrated Capitol Hill offices during the Civil War to today’s tech-savvy administrative assistants, secretaries…… Continue reading Review: Swimming in the Steno Pool by Lynn Peril
