I am a grown ass woman. I can decide what I do and don’t read. A man suggesting that I to read something is just that: a suggestion. How is a suggestion offensive? What I do with that suggestion is my call.

Some of the most impactful books I’ve read have been recommended by men I was dating. Conversely, several of the unread books sitting on my shelf were also recommended by dates.

Either way, my library is more interesting.

Send your suggestions this way, gentlemen.
