    Milk and Honey!

  • Jamie 'Independent Woman' Taylor •  March 22, 2018

    For all the single women out there like me, reading books is my only peace in life. I just LOVE books. I. REALLY. LOVE. BOOKS. #WomenPower

  • Renee •  November 29, 2017

    milk and honey is INCREDIBLE and Rupi Kaur regularly inspires my day to day living. I feel blessed to be able to read the writing at all!

    The Sellout sounds good. Good luck with the blog

  • Hannah •  February 20, 2017

    Oh! I missed the deadline too. SOB. 😭😭 Important sidenote: what a wonderful project this is. Eeeeee!!!! (Excitement)

  • Jill •  February 17, 2017

    Well I would love to read Notorious RBG because, well RBG! Milk and Honey also sounds like a much needed balm, but maybe that’s more the title than the actual contents. Poetry can rock your world and be very un-balm-like after all.

  • Judie •  February 16, 2017

    Notorious RBG

  • Maki •  February 15, 2017

    Milk and Honey! I don’t read enough poetry.

  • Elizabeth •  February 14, 2017

    Oh…missed the deadline. My bad.

  • Phoebe •  February 13, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle!! <3

  • Ray •  February 13, 2017

    Is it wrong that I love and want all of them?

  • Autumn •  February 13, 2017

    All of them! But especially The Meaning of Michelle. Such a strong, genuine, inspiring woman. Love her!

  • Ginn Fang •  February 13, 2017

    Love this! So excited for Eye Level!

  • Lucia •  February 12, 2017

    Milk and Honey 🙂 I’ve recently started exploring issues about love, self-pity and compassion and it seems like the kind of poetry that would help me on my thinking

  • Jolie Braun •  February 11, 2017

    The Sellout

  • Kaitlynn •  February 11, 2017

    Milk & honey! 😍

    I really want to read Notorious RBG – she’s a great example for women.

  • Karolina •  February 10, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Roxy •  February 10, 2017

    I excited about all of these books, but most of all Milk and Honey, because my goal this year is to challenge myself, step outside of my literary comfort zone, and read more poetry!

  • Margaret •  February 10, 2017

    The Sellout! My boyfriend loved it and won’t stop talking about it, but of course gave away his copy to someone else…

  • Suju •  February 10, 2017

    I am most excited about The Meaning of Michelle. As a woman of color, to see a strong, intelligent African American first lady win over the American public warmed my heart and reminded me of the goodness of this country. In a time where that goodness is being challenged – as well as beautifully defended – I would love to have this book to remind me of that wonderful woman and what she’s meant to this country.

  • Sarah •  February 10, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations!

    I can’t wait to read The Meaning of Michelle. My heart aches for how much I miss having her as our First Lady and need some TLC in the form of a book good about an inspiring woman.

  • Mary •  February 10, 2017

    Three of these are on my wish list/TBR list. All look incredible. My first choice would be Notorious RBG.

  • Dolores •  February 10, 2017

    A nice list but The Meaning of Michelle is the one!

    The Meaning of Michelle. No brainer!

    Definitely The Sellout! I’ve been trying to read more Man Booker Prize finalists.

  • Jane •  February 9, 2017

    Michelle!!! I just can’t get enough of her intelligence, her style, her class, her grace. She’s like a superhero.

  • Rasheeda Ali •  February 9, 2017

    Ladies, first, congratulations on this movement! I’m so excited to follow along. I honestly want to read ALL of these books. I already have Milk and Honey, but know someone with a birthday coming up who doesn’t, so bam, INSTANT GIFT! Xo

  • Lindsay Maurin •  February 9, 2017

    I would love to read The Sellout!

  • Noah Ciubotaru •  February 9, 2017

    I’ve been meaning to read discontent and its civilizations for a while!

  • Gill Friedlander •  February 9, 2017

    Notorious RBG has also been on my list for a while, and right now especially I think we have to absorb everything we can about strong powerful ladies. Also milk and honey, which I haven’t heard of but I love poetry and finding new collections! 🙂

  • Andrea Pritt •  February 9, 2017

    Cannot wait to read Discontent and its Civilizations & Milk and Honey!

  • Caitlin Mobley •  February 9, 2017

    I’m excited to read all of these wonderful books, but especially The Meaning of Michelle because I already miss her!

  • Marine Duquesnoy •  February 9, 2017

    Have to admit i don’t know about the majority of those books. But as i’m resolved to read more and discover great writers, this would be a great way to start !

  • Megan Stafford •  February 9, 2017

    Notorious RBG has been on my radar for quite a while now, but I’m also really intrigued by Discontent and it’s Civilizations.

  • Kiley Delaney •  February 9, 2017

    I am most excited for Milk and Honey! I am woefully underread when it comes to poetry, but I have heard such great things about this collection and would love to challenge myself.

  • Caroline Carper •  February 9, 2017

    Notorious RBGGGGGG

  • Caroline Carper •  February 9, 2017

    Milk and Honey!!

  • Bernadette Nelson •  February 9, 2017

    Cannot wait to read “The Meaning of Michelle.” She is one of my role models and a total bad ass lady who keeps it classy and cool all the time. I look forward to reading what eloquent writers have to say about her!

  • Ashton McLeod •  February 9, 2017

    I would read all of these books in the giveaway! The one that intrigues me most is Discontent and it’s Civilizations because I’d like to learn more about a perspective form Pakistan, and the world needs more empathy and understanding.

  • Annie Causey •  February 9, 2017

    Milk and honey!

  • Shayna Pollock •  February 9, 2017

    It’s hard to decide which one. The NYT feature on the Meaning of Michelle left me wanting more. But also, The Sellout sounds fantastic.

  • Julie Roche •  February 9, 2017

    Most excited to read Milk and Honey. I read my first real book of poetry a few years ago and it was so incredible and moving – can’t wait to find more like it.

  • Colette Brown •  February 9, 2017

    I’m most excited about Notorious RBG! I’ve read it already (on my iPad), but I can’t wait to see the incredible drawings and cartoons in print. Then, of course, I’ll be re-reading it in paper version 🙂 Thank you!!

  • Taylor walek •  February 9, 2017

    I’m most excited to read Milk and Honey!

  • Roberta •  February 9, 2017

    Milk and Honey !!

  • Sana Zafar •  February 9, 2017

    Notorious RBG because…Timely.

  • Ashley McCuen •  February 9, 2017

    I am excited to read Milk & Honey. Having been through some of those topics listed, I would love to read poetry & prose on them. 🙂

  • Liliana Catarina Pinto Marques Silvestre •  February 9, 2017

    Iam most anxious to read “Discontent and its Civilizations”! Hope you pick me 😊

  • chloe n poynton •  February 9, 2017

    RBG! I just finished “In my own words” and would love to delve into RBG the person, in addition to RBG the Justice. #notorious

  • Kirsten Norderhaug •  February 9, 2017

    Milk and Honey

  • Jane Hainze •  February 9, 2017

    I’d be most excited to read ‘The Meaning of Michelle’ – desperately missing the First Lady after these past few weeks of the new administration.

  • Ida Flores •  February 9, 2017

    Been wanting to read Notorious RBG!

  • Notorious AMB •  February 9, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations, has been at the top of my reading list. Pick me!

  • Tammy Tarng •  February 9, 2017

    Milk and Honey, because I’ve heard so many good, heartbreaking things about it and I want to better explore my poetry taste buds!

  • Bradley Gee •  February 9, 2017

    Dying to read The Sellout!

  • Claire Banks •  February 9, 2017

    Ugh torn! Equally eager to get my hands on Milk and Honey and The Notorious RBG. Fingers and toes crossed!!

  • Meghan Reggi •  February 9, 2017

    The Sellout has been on my to-read list for some time now!!

  • Michelle lirtzman •  February 9, 2017

    Dying to read THE MEANING OF MICHELLE. I miss her!!

  • Megan Cannella •  February 9, 2017

    I am equally excited for Discontent and its Civilizations and Milk and Honey. I am in the process of putting together comps lists and thinking about a plan for my dissertation. I think they’d both help in those endeavors.

  • Monica Acuna •  February 9, 2017

    Can’t wait to get my hands on Notorious RBG!

  • Colleen lintz •  February 9, 2017

    How can I choose?! First, I was going to say The Meaning of Michelle because, MICHELLE. But then I saw the Man Booker prize winner and those get me every year. How can I not pick the notorious RBG though? They’re all inevitably on my reading list now.

  • Michelle Kamerath •  February 9, 2017

    “Discontent and Its …” bc current mood. No wait! “Notorious RGB” bc she makes being a smart woman look lit AF. Yes.

  • Nicole Lange •  February 9, 2017

    Cannot wait to read “The Meaning of Michelle”, I am still grieving the loss of my favorite first family and crave more Michelle all day everyday!

  • Anna Lee •  February 9, 2017

    feeling lots of discontent about civilization right now…

  • Bethany Allman •  February 9, 2017

    They all sound amazing but I’m most excited to read Notorious RBG and to learn more about this magnificent woman. The more feminist inspiration the better, especially with all that is going on in our country.

  • Anna Szabo •  February 9, 2017

    I’m excited to read The Meaning of Michelle- she’s the best and I already miss her terribly!

  • Katie Clifford •  February 9, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle. Because she persisted.

  • marit darrow •  February 9, 2017

    so excited for the meaning of michelle! i miss that lady!

  • Lizz Dyer •  February 9, 2017

    Can’t wait to read Milk and Honey!

  • Sarah Lambert •  February 9, 2017

    Honestly, all of them! I just moved to NYC sans job, so my frivolous n’ fun ~book money~ is being reallocated for practical things like food and rent. The bright side: I just got my NYPL card!

  • Autumn Oubre •  February 9, 2017

    I’m most excited to read milk and honey because I have heard great things about the prose and poems of rupi kaur. I would be very grateful if I would be blessed to have that book in my life and during this period of time, I think it will aid in my growth as a young woman currently in college.

  • Brenna Buckstaff •  February 9, 2017

    Milk and Honey! I’ve been yearning for poetry and beauty that might speak to all the conflicted feelings I’ve been having during the current turmoil (I live in Washington DC)!

  • Mikayla brown •  February 9, 2017

    I’m excited most for The Meaning of Michelle, it’s one thing to tell the world the meaning of you but what do you mean to us as a black woman in public office, a black woman from Chicago, Ivy League Grad, mother to two black girls and First Lady.
    Also I’m interested, surprisingly, in RBG’s bio, I’ve had my resentments about her after her comments about brother Colin Kaepernick so let’s see what her bio is about, let’s see what her life is about and what she has to say.

    More importantly, let’s get readin’!

  • Margaret McInerny •  February 9, 2017

    Damn. I want to read them all. But. I’m eager to read Milk and Honey first. If you’re really living and not just existing you will experience love. Loss. Heartache. Possibly some level of violence (😕) — life can be unpredictable — but I’m a survivor! And who doesn’t want more poetry in their life. I know I do.

  • Anne Cheek •  February 9, 2017

    Would love to check out the Notorious RBG!

  • Leigh Edwards •  February 9, 2017

    I’ve had Milk and Honey on my TBR list for months, but it’s constantly checked out at my local library.

  • Whitney Brown •  February 9, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle. All the way.

  • Maria •  February 9, 2017

    The sellout!

  • Carol Elina Sánchez •  February 9, 2017

    I’m looking forward to reading all of them, but the idea of experiencing Milk and Honey excites me the most. I believe Rupi Kaur is an amazing and very gifted poet with an empowering message about self-love, acceptance and strength for all young women.

  • Michelle Atkinson •  February 9, 2017

    All of these books look amazing and RBG is one of my biggest heroines! But after following Rupi Kaur on Instagram, I can’t wait to dig in to ‘Milk and Honey’. *Crosses fingers*

  • Patricia McMillan •  February 9, 2017

    All of the titles sound fantastic, but I must choose “Notorious RBG” simply because she’s been a mentor to me for many years. Working in law for the majority of my career, I find her an inspiration on all levels. Justice, mother, woman, she’s an absolute force!

  • Jenny Trumbull •  February 9, 2017

    Would love some moody poetry (Milk and Honey) to get me through winter!

  • Kellen Hughes •  February 9, 2017

    Everyday I am reminded that the legacy of some tough broads will help us move towards a better future. That is why I can’t wait to absorb everything The Meaning of Michelle and Notorious RBG have between their covers!!

  • Bryn Orum •  February 9, 2017

    They all sound so good! I would probably dig into The Sellout first! Love what you guys are doing! Keep it up!

  • Taylour Wilson •  February 9, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle

  • lucy dallman •  February 9, 2017

    Love what you are doing!

  • Erin Thesing •  February 8, 2017

    I’ve been following Rupi Kaur’s poems for a while but have yet to dig into the full book. It’s time to go all in!

  • Courtney Burke •  February 8, 2017

    I am most excited to read The Meaning of Michelle. I admire Michelle Obama so much, I would love to read a book that takes a deeper look into her inspiring life.

  • Jenna Boozer •  February 8, 2017

    Oooh I’m excited about all of these! I will not pick just one! Okay fine…..Notorious RBG 😉

  • Michelina Flick •  February 8, 2017

    I’m excited to read both The Meaning of Michelle and Notorious RBG because the former is a model of extreme grace under undue pressure and prejudice and the latter is still kicking it at an age when most of us would be sitting back and taking it easy.

  • Kate Slaboch •  February 8, 2017

    I’d be excited about ANY of those books, but I have been wanting to read Notorious RBG.

  • Kira Lerner •  February 8, 2017

    I’m dying to read The Sellout! (Also love your first issue. Congrats!)

  • Rebecca Jurczyk •  February 8, 2017

    All of these books sound inspiring, but The Meaning of Michelle. Thanks for this giveaway and congratulations on launching this sleek and captivating site!

  • patricia tuazon •  February 8, 2017

    Milk and Honey.

  • Rebecca Horrigan •  February 8, 2017

    Most excited for Milk & Honey!

  • Danielle •  February 8, 2017

    It’s hard to choose, but I’m most excited to read Discontent and its Civilizations!

  • Rusty Reynolds •  February 8, 2017

    The Sellout, because I could use a good laugh right now!

  • Emily •  February 8, 2017

    I’d be most excited to read the Meaning of Michelle, because, man… those were the days.

  • Lauryn Weigold •  February 8, 2017

    I’m torn between Discontent and its Civilizations because it is so #relevant but also I love Michelle Obama and would love to read about her!

  • Bre •  February 8, 2017

    Whoops! Didn’t fully ready the promp! I got excited for all 5 but especially The meaning of Michelle.

  • Bre dumke •  February 8, 2017

    Love this! Such a great idea – I’m always looking for good books to read. ❤

  • Pascua Pezani •  February 8, 2017

    Ladies, I love the first issue! Caroline – I was delighted to see your face here. I first heard of your work from Cup of Jo, and I’m excited to see what you create. I can’t wait to read Discontent and its Civilizations.

    Thanks!!

  • Carolyn Depot •  February 7, 2017

    Hello, the NY Times described The Sellout as caustic and badass so I pick that one.

  • Beth •  February 7, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations. I need first hand accounts to help me make sense of the world we live in now.

  • Elise Erickson •  February 7, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Kate Mehring •  February 7, 2017

    Notorious RBG. Is it possible to be too relevant?

  • Natalie C •  February 7, 2017

    I can’t decide between The Sellout, which I’ve been seeing everywhere and been meaning to read, and Discontent and its Civilizations, which I’ve never heard of but sounds right up my alley.

  • Carrie Roy •  February 7, 2017

    I’m most excited for Discontent and its Civilizations (but also because I’ve already read Notorious RBG). I can wait to put some of the current climate into historical perspective, hoping that will help me see the bigger picture and regain a bit of hopefulness for the future.

  • Erin Skinner •  February 7, 2017

    Milk and Honey <3

  • Meghan •  February 7, 2017

    I can’t wait to read, “Milk and Honey,” Survival, the art of surviving is such a deep thread that runs through all of our lives – it’s heartbreaking but so beautiful in the retrospect.

  • Katie •  February 7, 2017

    The Sellout has been on my “to read” list forever – can’t wait to get to it. And I’m so excited about this project – I love to read about books almost as much as I love reading books!

  • Morgan Meredith •  February 7, 2017

    I’m excited about The Meaning of Michelle. I miss Michelle O so much!

  • Olivia Craig •  February 7, 2017

    Milk and Honey!

  • Michelle Price •  February 7, 2017

    The Sellout. I want to read the most caustic and the most badass first 100 pages of an American novel!

  • Hannah Wilken •  February 7, 2017

    Milk and Honey!!!

  • Aishwarya Iyer •  February 7, 2017

    Milk and Honey is an incredibly special book to me, as someone who is facing the Indian/American diaspora.

  • daci jaye •  February 7, 2017

    I’m on the library waiting lists for RBG and Milk and Honey but they all sound great!

  • Abigail Garrity •  February 7, 2017

    How to decide between Michelle and RBG?! They’re both awesome = I’m equally excited about both!

  • Anna Azvolinsky •  February 7, 2017

    Um, the Michelle Obama book, obviously….

  • Mary •  February 7, 2017

    I’m most excited to read (on the waiting list at my library): salt by nayyirah waheed — a work I stumbled upon and have high hopes for.

  • Betty Ho •  February 7, 2017

    I love this new magazine and I love books. Give me milk and honey and everything else.

  • maggie kirsch •  February 7, 2017

    notorious rbg

  • Cristina Font •  February 7, 2017

    Milk and Honey sounds perfect for my to-read list of this year, where I’m focused on reading books that help me understand myself better. I’m particulary interested in the topics of loss and survival because I want to see if what others felt help me to see why I think/feel this or that about my personal experiences.

  • Carilyn Platt •  February 6, 2017

    The Sellout

  • Maria Bustillo •  February 6, 2017

    cannot WAIT to get my hands on a copy of The Sellout – I’ve only heard incredible things (and also hope it gets chosen for this year’s One City, One Book initiative for NYC!)

  • Rachel Emily Taylor •  February 6, 2017

    I am so excited to read Milk and Honey! I am in awe of Rupi’s poetry. I love how she is so honest and true and lovely, even while writing about heartbreaking subjects, and I just think she is so inspirational.

  • Melissa Koch •  February 6, 2017

    Notorious RBG!

  • Jillian Jackson •  February 6, 2017

    I would dive immediately into Discontent and its Civilizations, although I plan to devour these all ASAP!

  • Micaela Neumann •  February 6, 2017

    The Sellout and milk and honey are great.
    I recommend the other books nominated for the Man Booker. Of the remaining books, His Bloody Project and Do Not Say We Have Nothing were incredible reads. The rest – Eileen, Hot Milk and All that Man is – were fine while they lasted but did not stick with me. Due to the climate of the times, of course, The Sellout was the clear winner. If you like Milk and Honey, I also recommend Salt. by Nayyirah Waheed. I also recommend The Vegetarian, which won the International Man Booker. I recently bought Human Acts, Kang’s previous novel, and am looking forward to it. The remaining three books I am not familiar with, but curious to check them out. Happy reading!

  • Betsy Hutson •  February 6, 2017

    Notorious RBG!

  • Naomi Hawkins-Rowe •  February 6, 2017

    Meant to add: all are on my to read list, but I’ve been wanting to read the Sellout.

  • Naomi Hawkins-Rowe •  February 6, 2017

    So excited to find your blog!

  • Jill DiPaolo •  February 6, 2017

    Milk & Honey and The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Abby Schwartz •  February 6, 2017

    Hi. So excited about Eye Level–thanks for putting it out there! I’m most excited to read The Meaning of Michelle. Why? I am not ready to say goodbye to the Obamas.

  • Kristin Thomas •  February 6, 2017

    Notorious RBG, because I need a little (actually, a lot) of girl power right now.

  • Lindsey Graham •  February 6, 2017

    They all sound fabulous, but I would like to read and gain strength/inspiration from “Notorious RBG” — this was also my Halloween costume this year. 🙂

  • Stephanie Ashton •  February 6, 2017

    Ack! All of them – what an amazing, amazing collection!
    Forced to choose, The Sellout. I’ve read so many reviews, and but haven’t yet added it to my queue.

  • Jennifer James •  February 6, 2017

    I’m most excited to read Milk and Honey. It holds the most appeal for me and as someone getting back into writing, it looks absolutely inspirational!

  • Anna Grenier •  February 6, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations

  • Julie Colando •  February 6, 2017

    Although it’s a tough decision–what an incredible collection–The Meaning of Michele is a standout for me. Reveling in the impact MO has made on our society’s collective soul is exactly what I need right now.

  • Katie Stookesberry •  February 6, 2017

    Milk and Honey! A book of poems is exactly what I need these days.

  • Jessie Ammons •  February 6, 2017

    Yes! Me thinks “Milk and Honey” would provide some nourishment.

  • Aleah Douglas •  February 6, 2017

    I’m most excited to read “Discontent and its Civilizations.” I write creative non-fiction and know that I could learn much from Hamid’s essays!

  • Rachel Echeto •  February 6, 2017

    Oof so hard to choose! The Sellout sounds like my kind of situation for sure. But also heard great things about Milk and Honey and poetry might be just what I need in today’s weird af days.

  • raphaëlle paquette •  February 6, 2017

    omg so excited for this beautiful new project ! and i want to read milk and honey so badly ! 🙂

  • Sophia Stid •  February 6, 2017

    Would love to read Discontent and Its Civilizations! Something about essays is perfect for this stage of winter.

  • Marit Medefind •  February 6, 2017

    So excited about The Meaning of Michelle–what an amazing woman!

  • Megan Senecal •  February 6, 2017

    I normally would jump to say Notorious RBG, but I think Milk and Honey would be the perfect sweet escape from the politics I have been soaking up lately. A little self care in this time 🙂

  • Lisa Hoelle •  February 6, 2017

    They all sound amazing, but I’m most excited about The Meaning of Michelle. She’s such an inspiration!

  • Megan mcqueen •  February 6, 2017

    I am excited about all these books, but most excited to read Notorious RBG. It’s been on my list for a while now!

  • Caitlyn Merwin •  February 6, 2017

    Nortorious RBG – I love biographies and I love RBG!

  • Alice VanDerveer •  February 6, 2017

    I love Rupi Kaur’s poetry (I follow her on instagram and her poetry and art give me life). Having my own copy of Milk and Honey would be a dream come true for me. Also, any book about the fabulous Michelle Obama is worth reading.

  • Lindsey Gross •  February 6, 2017

    Most excited about Notorious RBG!

  • sarah escuin •  February 6, 2017

    Im excited about all these books but in particular Milk and Honey.

  • Carolyn Benard •  February 6, 2017

    I would have said the RNG novel before reading summaries of the others. I’m really interested in the, “Discontent and its Civilisations,” because of the examination of the individual versus community. The LA Times review captured my attention most: Hamid is a deft and fluid novelist, unafraid to take on big topics…[In] Discontent and Its Civilizations …[he] make[s] a case for the way big issues unfold across individual lives. And yet his intent is not to trace the evolution of the war on terror but how it alters us on the most intimate terms.” —LA Times What a timely topic, and yet fresh angle to dissect a tough issue. I’m also curious to read some of his insight as a Pakistani. Sounds compelling!

  • Jamie perry •  February 6, 2017

    I’m most excited about the poetry collection!

  • Carole Deeter •  February 6, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle- Why? There will never be another Michelle. She set the bar so high there is only one way to go! She’s elegant, fascinating and a role model in every way.

  • Caitlyn Potter •  February 5, 2017

    I’m so anxious to read The Meaning of Michelle. I read a biography of Michelle Obama several years ago and it left me wanting to learn more about her (from different perspectives). I hope you pick me!

  • Brandy Davis •  February 5, 2017

    Discontent and Its Civilizations! I really like Mohsin Hamid’s fiction, so I can’t wait to pick up this essay collection.

  • Meredith Pryzant •  February 5, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle will allow me to long for the has- it – only been 2 weeks?- since we had a positive female role model in the White House.

  • Connie Shin •  February 5, 2017

    I am most excited to read Milk and Honey. I recently attended an event where Lucy Kalanithi spoke about these things – love, loss, heartache, violence, grief. These are things I want to keep exploring in my own life as they’ve also been a constant theme in my own life. Thanks!

  • Kasi cage •  February 5, 2017

    Most excited? It would have to be a tie between Discontent and its Civilizations and The Meaning of Michelle, both would be phenomenal I suspect.

    The Sellout!

  • Rhiannon Ling •  February 4, 2017

    I am so, so excited for “The Meaning of Michelle.” I’m a huge lover of short stories and essays; not to mention, this time around, it’s based around an incredibly inspiring woman, written by wonderful, light-filled human beings. I can’t wait to see it!

  • Daley Farr •  February 4, 2017

    I’m excited about all these books, but I’d love to see THE MEANING OF MICHELLE. She has been such a powerful and inspiring presence these last 8 years, and I’m eager to read these contributors’ perspectives on her legacy.

  • Pat Holsten •  February 4, 2017

    Notorious RBG is the one novel I am most excited about. Someone stole this book from my local library! Lol. Also, I admire her willingness to speak her mind. I was surprised to learn that the publishing order was changed– this is actually the second of the trilogy.

  • Barb Januscheitis •  February 4, 2017

    I would love to know more about Ruth Nader Ginsburg!

  • Lucy Gray •  February 4, 2017

    Very excited to read all of these, but ‘The meaning of Michelle’ is especially poignant right now given the Obama Family shaped hole in my heart right now. Very excited to see what this woman does next.

  • Gillian •  February 3, 2017

    Notorious RBG – I wish I was 10% as badass! Some day!

  • Nisha Nagaraj •  February 2, 2017

    I’m excited to read all of these books, but mostly to read The Meaning of Michelle. I live in the UK, so perhaps have a slightly different perspective, but I too admire FL Michelle Obama for her poise and vision through these difficult years. I’d like to see the perspectives of different writers on this inspirational woman. I feel it would be a lift we all could use right now!

  • Brooke Ward •  February 2, 2017

    Milk & Honey! I’ve heard great things and I love discovering poetry that identifies emotions I haven’t yet been able to put into words. Thank you for a beautiful newsletter on one of my absolute favorite subjects and pastimes.

  • Marina Waquil •  February 2, 2017

    I’m really excited about this website and super excited to read Milk and Honey!

  • Regan Windsor •  February 2, 2017

    The Sellout has been on my tbr list for too long 🤓

  • Summer Si •  February 2, 2017

    I’m interested in reading The Meaning of Michelle because the days before Trump’s inauguration, I spent about 3 hours after work watching Michelle
    Obama interviews with Jimmy Fallon, Ellen Degeneres, and Jill Biden with Entertainment. I love Michelle Obama and would love to read more about her.

  • Annie •  February 2, 2017

    I ‘d love a copy of Discontent and Its Civilizations! I want to challenge myself with more non-fiction in 2017 and really enjoyed Hamid’s How to Get Rich in Rising Asia.

  • Danielle Williams •  February 1, 2017

    This is awesome! I am most excited to read The Sellout because the plot caught my attention and the cover design is fantastic.

  • Deanna Sessions •  February 1, 2017

  • Martina •  February 1, 2017

    I would like to gift the Notorious RBG to my sister who turns 19 this Friday! She loves books as much as I do and always has to have a tangible copy – a Kindle doesn’t do it for her 😉

  • Nicole Swedlow •  February 1, 2017

    I’M MOST EXCITED TO READ MILK AND HONEY. (Please note, the use of capital letters is intentional to demonstrate my level of excitement.)

  • Beth Maurer •  January 31, 2017

    What a great collection! It’s hard to choose!! But considering how I’m going through some severe Obama withdrawal right now (like much of the country) I’m most excited for The Meaning of Michelle. She is a personal hero. What a fantastic giveaway!

  • Diana Borges •  January 31, 2017

    Oh man it’s too hard to pick one! I’ve been meaning to read The Sellout since I listened to this interview: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/writersandcompany/paul-beatty-on-the-sobriety-of-african-american-literature-1.3464151
    But I’m currently in law school and in need of inspiration, so I would love to get my hands on the Notorious RBG.
    Along with this mug: https://www.thedemocraticcup.com/products/ruth-ruth-cup

    Oh I am so excited about this project!

  • Brenna Donovan •  January 31, 2017

    Milk and Honey, I’ve heard great things about it!

  • Margo Stoner •  January 31, 2017

    Notorious RBG! Because now more than ever I’m craving perspectives from thoughtful, intelligent, bad ass women.

  • Sasha Taskier •  January 31, 2017

    Notorious RBG – this has been on my ‘to read’ list for awhile. Also, so excited for this new mag!

  • Cassie Capewell •  January 31, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle, and Milk and Honey! Both have been on my list for a while. Love!

  • Cristina Wood •  January 31, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations would be my top choice – love, love, love essay collections! Tough choice though!

  • Nina Finger •  January 31, 2017

    Wow! Rupi Kaur’s topics in Milk and Honey seem so personal and powerful. I would take this book as a start to finally delve into the realm of poetry.

  • Carly Roberts •  January 31, 2017

    All of them!!!! But The Sellout has been on my reading list since it came out so I would read that one first…

  • Megan Beauchamp •  January 31, 2017

    The Sellout has been on my to-read list for far too long.

  • Amanda Morrissey •  January 31, 2017

    Milk and Honey…because it is everything.

  • Grace Milbourne •  January 31, 2017

    Milk and Honey. I’m falling back into love affair with poetry and this collection sounds so applicable to me, and moving.

  • Jessica Lugo •  January 31, 2017

    I would love to read them all – but especially excited about The Meaning of Michelle! She is truly inspiring.

  • Margaret •  January 31, 2017

    Notorious RBD! Love this first issue of yours1

  • Frida Ayala •  January 31, 2017

    I’m probably most excited to read is Milk and Honey–the different emotions and phases it addresses seem a good remedy for what has just been one of the hardest years of my life. And I’m going to need it to make it through this one which apparently doesn’t promise to be better.

  • Meg Tuttle •  January 31, 2017

    Most excited to read The Sellout – I’ve heard so many good things about it. Also excited about this mag! Great work ladies!

  • Sean Higgins •  January 30, 2017

    I’m most excited to read ‘Discontent and its Civilizations’ because I love reading essays!

  • Courtney Stevenson •  January 30, 2017

    I most look forward to being able to read milk and honey. I follow the author on Instagram and find her poems to be short, sweet and to the point. I also admire the aesthetic of her using all lowercase lettering which somehow makes reading her poems more fluid lol. I think that the poems in this book will help to assist me with my daily affirmations and arm me with words that can be uplifting during this hard time for women after the recent election. Being a part of the LGBT Community and also a black woman sometimes it’s difficult to find a consistent identity with so much controversy surrounding each community. But if Rupi can do it being a woman of ethnic background I feel inspired to do the same.

  • Courtney Stevenson •  January 30, 2017

    I’m most excited to read milk and honey. I follow the poet on Instagram and find that her unique poetic style using all lowercase lettering renders a new aesthetic that somehow makes for a more fluid reading experience. Her poems are often very uplifting to women which is a major necessity given current events. I’d love to use this book to assist with my daily affirmations. Being an LGBT black woman I belong to so many different communities

  • Whitney Winsor •  January 30, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations sounds like an appropriate book to be reading right about now…

  • Kara Cunningham •  January 30, 2017

    hmmmm….I think I’d be most excited to read Notorious RBG! So excited about this site! Keep up the lovely work.

  • J. Schmidt •  January 30, 2017

    I think I’d be most excited to read Milk and Honey because it sounds like kind of the perfect title for a poetry collection, doesn’t it?

  • Courtney McGowan •  January 30, 2017

    I am most excited to read milk & honey. I used to write poetry all the time when I was younger and over the years I dedicated my reading time to novels. I am making a conscious effort to read more poetry this year and I have heard wonderful things about milk & honey. Thank you for your consideration.

  • Heather O'Leary •  January 30, 2017

    Milk and Honey is one of the few books of poetry on my to-read list. Reading more poetry is one of my reading goals for 2017!

  • Erica Chau •  January 30, 2017

    I’m most excited to read “Milk and Honey”. I’m in a great transitional phase in my life right now – as a young woman, fresh grad, traditional parents, liberally educated yet still living at home, tensions run high in every aspect of my life. From love to loss, missing people, losing friends, grief and frustration, I am at a loss of words half the time. At a job I don’t particularly love but too scared to move away, in a house that feels like I’m in an empty space, I’m looking for a way to make it through. To learn from a hard experience, from dealing with my stress and anxiety, to escapism through books and movies, to trying to meditate and learn and reflect and grow. I feel a lot of pain. Some mental, some physical (chronic pain is no joke), and definitely in multifaceted ways. The same pain that feels different every day, I just want to know I’m not alone. Sometimes I can’t find the words to show how I feel, how it hurts, how it’s frustrating and isolating and lonely, how I want to be loved and held and told that I matter. That I’m more than just a number, that I’ve impacted someone’s life in some way. I want to read a book that knows how I feel, through and through.

  • Anne Mueller •  January 30, 2017

    The meaning of Michelle!

  • Alison D. •  January 30, 2017

    The selections are so good! But I’ll have to go with Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. It’s been on my TBR list for some time now.

  • Jessica Lis •  January 30, 2017

    It is a tie between The Sellout and Discontent and its Civilizations. I love satire and have wanted to read The Sellout since the day it came out, and I am a huge(!) fan of Mohsin Hamid.

  • Kate O'Neill •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout — huge list of holds at the library.

  • Arielle Ballance •  January 30, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle! I’m a HUGE Michelle Obama fan, and this book might help (a little bit) with how much I’m missing her and Barack.
    Also, that tote is amazing.

  • Jessi McDonald •  January 30, 2017

    Hard decision, but I’ll have to go with Milk and Honey. I was thumbing through it in the bookstore recently and have been wanting to read it ever since!

  • Carmen Herlihy •  January 30, 2017

    Notorious RBG. At a time of restless worry and building anxiety we need more warriors like her to inspire to lead and to remind us to NEVER give up the fight.

  • Shelley Saunders •  January 30, 2017

    Because I already miss the Obamas, I’d do anything to keep them in my life … and therefore literature. I’m excited to read The Meaning of Michelle. Bring her back!

  • Laura Galiher •  January 30, 2017

    I’m most looking excited to read “Discontent and its Civilizations”, for I love (but never seem to read enough of) books with the format of essay collections or short stories. I have never read anything else by Mohsin Hamid, but having researched him a bit, I see that he seems to come to his perspective of the world from a very intensely interesting and engaging personal background. It would be a total pleasure to be able to sit myself down and read his book!

  • Carmen Barajas •  January 30, 2017

    I just can’t wait to ready Notorious RBG. Oh, and I love that tote.

  • Kirsten Myhr •  January 30, 2017

    Ahhh!! I am absolutely most excited to read “The Meaning of Michelle”. My sister and I call her “Queen Michelle”, and are missing her so deeply in this transitioanl period over the last few weeks. This would be such a source of comfort and hope, and definitely something I would love to share with my sister, mom and friends.

  • Cathy •  January 30, 2017

    Congratulations on your first issue! As a lover of books and creativity, I am delighted by this new concept! Can’t wait to see what’s next! I have a soft spot for poetry so I am looking forward to read “Milk and Honey”.

  • Jody Mosley •  January 30, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle – it may ease sadness over the Obamas leaving the White House.

  • Ellen Har •  January 30, 2017

    I would love to read about the one and only Notorious RBG!

  • Joan Flynn •  January 30, 2017

    Michelle Obama has been a First Lady I have really been impressed with and would love to learn even more about her by reading “The Meaning of Michelle”.

  • emily blasik •  January 30, 2017

    i’ve been really wanting to read Milk and Honey! i flipped through its beauty-filled pages a while back at a bookstore, and i still regret not taking it home with me. thank you for the opportunity to win it (and other amazing books)!

  • Melissa Grant •  January 30, 2017

    I have my eye on The Sellout but I’m most excited to read The Meaning of Michelle! I also have a little public library/art installation in my DC neighborhood so if I were to win I know my neighbors would scoop these up in a heartbeat after I’m done reading!

  • Julie Doherty •  January 30, 2017

    I’m so happy to see EyeLevel up and running! From this selection I would first pick Milk and Honey. I’m not usually a poetry reader but I’ve been drawn to this title for a while. The times we live in are about getting out of our comfort zones and push boundaries.

  • Mary Alice Martin •  January 30, 2017

    Stoked about Discontent and its Civilizations! Essay collections are my favorite.

  • Katie Robinson •  January 30, 2017

    Reeeeeally want to read The Sellout! 🙂

    The Meaning of Michelle- I love her and am so excited to hear of this book!

  • Sara Quiroz •  January 30, 2017

    I am dying to read Milk & Honey, ive been hearing about it from everyone

  • Sam Larkan •  January 30, 2017

    As I read through the above description and list, I got a little rush of excitement as I read each title. An, “oh I’ve wanted to read that” for each one. I can’t say that any one stood out among the rest, but just that they all seem incredibly important for this moment in history and to stay afloat. For when I want to feel inspired to act, Notorious RBG, for when I need a laugh, The Sellout, for when I need to cry at remembering the good days, The meaning of Michelle, for when I need poetic zen and a new look at life, Milk and Honey, and for when I’m angry and ready to take on the world, Discontent and its Civilizations. So in the end, -all of them are what I am most excited to read. This is an all star package- thank you!

  • Gina Beirne •  January 30, 2017

    I am most excited to read Milk and Honey. I’ve been hearing so much about it!

  • Caitlin Scarborough •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout was on my list, but that tagline for Discontent and its Civilizations is pretty convincing, and can anyone say no to an illustrated biography of RBG??? So I choose F: All of the Above

  • Laila Milevski •  January 30, 2017

    I’m excited by Discontent and its Civilizations, as a way to gain one writer’s insight into the cultural, religious, and ethnic tensions that shape much of today’s foreign policy.

  • Adrienne •  January 30, 2017

    The first one I would pick up is definitely The Meaning of Michelle. And I would be toting that tote all over London for sure!

  • Candy Pilar Godoy •  January 30, 2017

    Notorious RBG! swoooon.

  • Nicole Winski •  January 30, 2017

    All of these titles sound amazing, but I’ve been wanting to read Milk & Honey for a long while!

  • Ally Gallant •  January 30, 2017

    Notorious RBG sounds perfect! Anything about powerful women is top of my reading list at the moment

  • Laura Rogers •  January 30, 2017

    “The Meaning of Michelle” – an ode to an intelligent, charming and stylish woman who – despite her First Lady status – somehow seemed so *relatable* – like she’s somehow you could talk with over coffee about pop culture, books and general everyday musings.

  • Selena Torrado •  January 30, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle (Michelle Obama 4ever <3)

  • Sophia Casas •  January 30, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle, of course!

  • Anastassia Beliakova •  January 30, 2017

    Milk and Honey seems to cover all the basics in life 😉

  • K Hopkins •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout x

  • Kaitlin Robson •  January 30, 2017

    I have two sisters, one gifted Milk and Honey to the other for Christmas and I’ve been so jealous. I’m excited to read Milk and Honey – but essay collections have historically been my favorite things to read. Discontent and its Civilizations would probably be one that I would buy for myself or for my bookish friends if I didn’t win it. 🙂

  • Lindsay Beaver •  January 30, 2017

    I’m excited to ready all of the books, but particularly the Notorious RBG. I’m a con law nerd and I think that it will be a great companion to Sisters in Law, which is also on my 2017 reading list. Thanks, Eye Level!

  • Mindy •  January 30, 2017

    So excited I stumbled onto you!

  • Christine •  January 30, 2017

    Wow. They all look good… and I’ve been meaning to read the Notorious RBG, but I’ve just never gotten around to it; I will read anything about Michelle Obama; and, I am most looking forward to Milk and Honey. I’ve been aching for some new (to me) poetry and this collection sounds incredibly beautiful.

  • Rebekah Peppler •  January 30, 2017

    Loving every. single. one. of these picks. “Discontent and its Civilizations” has my <3.

  • Alexandra •  January 30, 2017

    Oh, I’d love to read “The Meaning of Michelle”, because… well, it’s about Michelle Obama <3
    Also, the website looks beautiful, congratulations!!!

  • Christine Lim •  January 30, 2017

    Gah – I couldn’t pick one! So can I say Notorious RBG – because she is strong as hell and I know nearly nothing about her. And the Sellout, because I didn’t want my book club to read this, then it won the Man Booker, and now I need to know why!

  • Tifany Dubois •  January 30, 2017

    I’d love to read The Sellout ! Eye Level sounds great, thank you from France !

  • Hai Yen Nguyen •  January 30, 2017

    I can’t wait to get my hands on “Notorious RBG.” She is an icon and a champion for women’s rights and human rights.

  • Quinn Doyle •  January 30, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle sounds wonderful. I’ve never heard of it before! Not to cheat and give two answers but The Sellout has also been on my list for weeks, such an interesting concept!

  • Stapha Charleme •  January 30, 2017

    Congrats! The website looks wonderful. I’d love to read “The Meaning of Michelle.”

  • Hollis Matyssek •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout!!

  • Sheila Dowe •  January 30, 2017

    Such a great group of books! I think the one I’m most interested in reading is The Meaning of Michelle. I’ve become more of a fan of the former First Lady and now that she may be in the spotlight less I’d like to know more about her. Congrats on Eye Level!

  • Sarah Smallwood Parsons •  January 30, 2017

    This magazine is so lit and also faded. (Discontent and its Civilizations)

  • Sana Zafar •  January 30, 2017

    I’d love to read all of these, but The most timely of the lot is The Meaning of Michelle, as she has meant so much to so many, particularly in her last few months as First Lady. Congrats on issue 1!

  • Nikki Lemmons •  January 30, 2017

    I’m most excited for Notorious RBG!

  • Justine F •  January 30, 2017

  • Hannah E Alday •  January 30, 2017

  • Tamara •  January 30, 2017

    The whole list looks great, but I’m most excited about the sellout. I read white boy shuffle a few months ago and loved it. (Also congrats on issue 1! It’s great!)

  • Rebecca Hansen •  January 30, 2017

    Has to be Notorious RBG. I’ll read this to my little wildwoman of a daughter who always speaks her mind, goes for what’s right, and will hopefully grow up to be just as badass as RBG. May her bookshelf always be filled with words about inspiring and strong women. (Yeah, I know this is an adult book — she can look at the pictures, I can read the words).

    PS I am blown over by this first issue. Thanks for accomplishing all the things I was hoping to find in a smart literary zine.

  • Sarah Lee •  January 30, 2017

  • Sara Harris •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout! Can’t wait to read this! I’m loving this Eye Level Magazine!!!! Definitely will recommend to my bookish friends.

    I’m most excited to read The Meaning of Michelle and Notorious RBG because right now I could really use some advice from women who have gotten things done without compromising their strength or identity.

  • Kelly Higgins •  January 30, 2017

    Ooh all such good reads! The Sellout has been on my list for a while now…and that cover is 👌🏻

  • Carolyn Johnsen •  January 30, 2017

    I’ve yet to read a book that’s won the Man Booker Prize so The Sellout interests me the most.

  • Ashlyn Wallace •  January 30, 2017

    So excited to read milk and honey! It’s been on my list for a while!

  • Lourdes Lorenzo •  January 30, 2017

    I’m actually very interested in reading Milk and Honey. I’m not a big poetry reader but I heard so many good things about this volume that I want to change that. I want to make poetry reading a new habit!

  • José Antonio Arellano •  January 30, 2017

    As a student, my reading time is limited, and I’d love to use some of it to work throughout discontents and it’s civilizations – reading is the perfect break from studying!

  • Justine Ulan •  January 30, 2017

    Milk and Honey !!

  • bailey Lininger •  January 30, 2017

    As an educator, I’ve been yearning for a copy of Notorious RBG to share with my students and coworkers, but really, I’d be stoked about all of them. Can’t wait to read through this whole first issue of Eye Level–it looks amazing!

  • Jillian Reimer •  January 30, 2017

    I’ve been really interested in Notorious RBG, though I’m always happy to fill my shelves with more stories to dive into!

  • Rinette Yeo-Church •  January 30, 2017

    I think I am most excited about ‘Notorious RBG’. And thanks so much for Eye Level- excited about seeing this in my in-box!!!

  • Micaela Lade •  January 30, 2017

    I am most exited to read The Meaning of Michelle — oh, how I miss her!

  • Claire Gonzalez •  January 30, 2017

    So excited for Eyelevel! In this crazy time, all of these books seem relevant, important and inspiring. Given how much I miss the (former) first lady, I would be so excited to read The Meaning of Michelle. Thanks!

  • Julia Bumke •  January 30, 2017

    Very excited about all of these–and especially “The Meaning of Michelle.”

  • Katharine Scrivener •  January 30, 2017

    This is an AMAZING grouping of books, so it’s hard to pick just one–can I pick two? I’d have to say The Meaning of Michelle and Notorious RBG, two powerful women with strong voices in our history–something that’s desperately needed right now.

  • Allison B •  January 30, 2017

    Discontent and its civilizations! It’s on my reading list.

  • Katrien Pickles •  January 30, 2017

    I’m most excited at the possibility to have ‘Milk and Honey’ in my hot little hands!

  • Betsy Sacks •  January 30, 2017

    Most excited about Notorious RBG!

  • Megan Edmiston •  January 30, 2017

    Milk & Honey! For me, my love of poetry got lost in school and I’ve only recently come back around to reading it and writing it again. In doing so, I’ve fallen more in love with it than in previous affairs and this book is high up on my wish list!

  • Samantha Whyte •  January 30, 2017

    Discontent and its civilizations.

  • Lauren Stackpoole •  January 30, 2017

    Love this 👏🏻👏🏻

  • Bekah Jones •  January 30, 2017

    I’d love to read Sellout! Although, ‘Discontent and it’s civilizations’ is a close second.

  • Daniella Young •  January 30, 2017

    I am most excited about Notorious RBG.

  • Madison •  January 30, 2017

    Notorious RBG has been on my list for forever! But last year I was writing my undergrad thesis on the Supreme Court (if anyone ever wants to talk about the history of campaign finance at the Court-I am here. for. it.) and needed some scotus space. I think I’m finally ready to dive in!

    Also, Irin Carmon–one of the co-writers–is an excellent Twitter follow.

  • Una •  January 30, 2017

    NOMS NOMS NOMS I WILL EAT ALL OF THEM. But very excited about The Sellout and Milk and Honey.

  • Emily Smith •  January 30, 2017

    Oh, they all are good, but right now? Only “The Meaning of Michelle” can be at the top of all our lists. Love Issue 1 already!!!

  • Nicole Watt •  January 30, 2017

    These all sound incredible, but I have been especially wanting to read The Sellout for the longest time!

  • patricia •  January 30, 2017

    Notorious RBG because we’re about to enter a whole new other era of SCOTUS.

  • Meg Dowdy •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout has been on my Amazon wish list. Maybe this giveaway is why I haven’t pulled the trigger… (Also, my middle school students would die laughing if I carried a “Get Lit” tote to school. So good.)

  • Cynthia leonard •  January 30, 2017

    “The Sellout” – Lets talk about it! More importantly, let’s listen.

  • Sarah Evangelista •  January 30, 2017

    Notorious RBG, because who doesn’t love themselves some RBG?!

  • Gabrielle Netzer •  January 30, 2017

    Milk and Honey but know that it wasn’t easy to pick just one :).

    Congrats on the first edition! Already looking forward to the next one!!

  • Caroline Carper •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout! I don’t know anything about it, and would love to be enlightened.

  • Kiara Price •  January 30, 2017

    The Sellout!

  • Lindsey Romero •  January 30, 2017

    totally forgot to name a book in my previous comment….I was talking about Notorious RBG!

  • Lindsey Romero •  January 30, 2017

    Amidst all the craziness that women have had to endure these past several months (i.e., a Cheeto taking office over an insanely qualified lady), I would love to read about a bad-ass feminist who overcame so much s**t to assume one of the highest positions of power in government.

  • Lexie Frensley •  January 29, 2017

    I’m missing our former First Lady so much these days! I’d love to read The Meaning of Michelle ❤️

  • JC •  January 29, 2017

    Must-reads all, but #1 has to be Notorious RBG. I hope she lives to be 100 and more

  • Aileen Sitero •  January 29, 2017

    Definitely Milk and Honey!!

  • Kelley MacDonald •  January 29, 2017

    It’s a tie between Notorious RBG & The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Rita Bodine •  January 29, 2017

    Notorious RBG!!

    Discontent and its Civilizations. P. S. So in love with Eye Level. Well done!

  • Bozuma Acquaah •  January 29, 2017

    I’m excited to read The Meanings of Michelle. Really missing her presence in the White House

  • Charlotte •  January 29, 2017

    I want to read all of them! But Discontent and its Civilizations. I enjoy reading an essay on the subway in the morning, so then I can think about it if (when) work gets boring.

  • Charlie Peters •  January 29, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations.

  • Isabel Frías •  January 29, 2017

    I’m most excited about Discontent and its Civilizations. There’s something that feels so satisfying and enriching about a good collection of essays and this one sounds like it’s just right!

  • Hayley Locke •  January 29, 2017

    Well, I could go the lame route and say I’m excited for all of them, but I especially want to read Notorious RGB. It would be easy to gush and gush, but it’s more efficient to just to present this quote of hers on abortion “I said on the equality side of it, that it is essential to a woman’s equality with man that she be the decision-maker, that her choice be controlling.”

  • Sophia D •  January 29, 2017

    Milk and Honey- so many strong ladies in my life keep posting quotes and verses that have inspired them from this text!

  • Allison Hester •  January 29, 2017

    Milk and Honey!! I need a ray of light in the sea of darkness that is the current political environment.

  • Marcy Davenport •  January 29, 2017

    I’d go with Notorious RBG. I hear so many things about her that I would enjoy knowing more.

  • Samantha Quon •  January 29, 2017

    Discontent and its Civilizations!

  • Kate McGraw •  January 29, 2017

    Really looking forward to reading Discontent and its Civilizations!

  • Althea Yau •  January 29, 2017

    All of these books feel so relevant today, but if I had to choose, it would be Discontent and its Civilizations. There are so many complexities in the relationships between the East and West and I am curious to see how he unpacks it all.

  • Nicole •  January 29, 2017

    Do I really have to pick just one? Milk and Honey was recently placed on my to read list and I’m so looking forward to getting to it!

  • Janelle •  January 29, 2017

    Discontent and its civilizations, because what a title.

    Ps, What a great thing you’ve created!

    Milk and Honey! I have heard it’s amazing collection of poetry. I don’t read a lot of poetry and feel like this could be the start of something beautiful.

  • Michelle Leong •  January 29, 2017

    I’d love to read The Meaning of Michelle. For perhaps obvious reasons – it’s my name, too! I wasn’t named after anybody (although I tell people I was named after a Beatles song), and sometimes that makes me want to hunt for other inspirational Michelles.

  • Lily Wang •  January 29, 2017

    Milk and Honey! Her work always brings me to tears

  • Christina Rosado •  January 29, 2017

    The Sellout, for sure!

  • Sicily McLaughlin •  January 29, 2017

    I’m most excited to read Discontent and Its Civilizations because I’m a sucker for political discourse and activism. It’ll be a good resource as my group and I are trying to start a student led movement against our current administration.

  • Monica Lo •  January 29, 2017

    Milk and Honey!

  • Devin Holt-Zimmerman •  January 29, 2017

    Milk and Honey sounds like it would really strike a chord with me.

  • Cecelia Selam •  January 28, 2017

    The Sellout

    The Meaning of Michelle

    Notorious RBG! I am ashamed to say I don’t know much about her but am eager to learn!

  • Sadie •  January 28, 2017

    I would love to read Milk and Honey!

    Notorious RBG

  • Madison •  January 28, 2017

    Milk and Honey! I’ve heard so many good things about it and it’s on my TBR!

  • Meghan Kehoe •  January 28, 2017

    I’m so looking forward to reading The Sellout and The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Maddie Sheesley •  January 28, 2017

    Having already read Notorious RBG, I’m super stoked to learn more about another powerful lady in The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Karoline Trepper •  January 28, 2017

    I have been wanting to read Milk and Honey for a while – it’s been too long since I have read poetry!

  • Jaime Herndon •  January 28, 2017

    the Meaning of Michelle! Such a great tribute to a strong woman.

  • Yvonne Kelly •  January 28, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Jessica Molina •  January 28, 2017

    I want to read the Meaning of Michelle so badly because she is a powerful, intelligent and totally gorgeous role model. But I would love to read all these books tbh.

  • Sarah OBrien •  January 28, 2017

    I have been patiently waiting for Eye Level to launch, I’m so excited it’s finally here. It did more than deliver, I’m definitely looking forward to readign discontent and it’s civilizations!

  • Katie Pawlowski •  January 27, 2017

    I would love to read The Sellout!

  • Kim Miller •  January 27, 2017

    I’m most excited about Discontent and its Civilizations. Reading essays are my thing now 🙂

  • Nicole Banholzer •  January 27, 2017

    Notorious RBG! I’ve been dying to get my grubby hands on this book forever.

  • Michaela Sheridan •  January 27, 2017

    milk and honey!

    p.s. Loving the first issue. Keep up the great work!

  • Laura Bennett •  January 27, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle!

  • Mary Stata •  January 27, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle! Michelle Obama is undoubtedly going to play an important role in American politics in the coming years – mostly because she is able to speak truth to power while not becoming part of the political establishment. I respect her immensely.

  • Jaime Patterson •  January 27, 2017

    I can’t wait to read The Sellout! (And all the others of course!)

  • Anna Dod •  January 27, 2017

    Milk and Honey!

  • Bianca Weiland •  January 27, 2017

    I’m adding all of these books to my “must-read” list (just in case I don’t win), but the one I’m most excited about has to be Notorious RGB since it’s something I’ve been eyeing for a while.

  • Megan McConachie •  January 27, 2017

    I want to read them all, but I’m really excited about Discontent and its Civilizations. I’ve been trying to get more into essay and short story collections and this seems like a great place to dive in!

  • Hayley Barker •  January 27, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle, or Discontent and its Civilizations. But really any! They all look amazing. Congrats you guys, issue one looks incredible!

  • Patricia •  January 27, 2017

    Notorious RBG!

  • Halaina Kumpf •  January 27, 2017

    So excited for what you guys are starting here!

  • Melissa Thornton •  January 27, 2017

    Since I’m forced to choose just one of these books to be most excited about, I’ll go with Discontent and its Civilizations.

  • Cassandra Daniels •  January 27, 2017

    The Meaning of Michelle is the title I am most excited to read, this election and presidency have already warn me out. I think a look back at the most inspiring first lady I have had in my lifetime is the perfect way to decompress and find hope for the future.

  • Grace Vaitilingam •  January 27, 2017

    Milk and Honey, most definitely. I first saw one of her poems on Tumblr in 2016 and I’ve been following Rupi Kaur ever since. Congratulations on the launch of site guys!! I’m very excited for what’s to come ❤

  • Jordan Scott •  January 27, 2017

    I’m most excited to read Discontent and its Civilizations!

  • Rebecca Renner •  January 27, 2017

    I would love to read Notorious RBG!

  • Michele Kimberlin •  January 27, 2017

    Wow! What a great way AND good reads to kick start what is sure to be a brilliant magazine. Thank you for offering it to the world.

  • Prahelika Gadtaula •  January 27, 2017

    Most excited to read Milk & Honey. Rupi Kaur is a goddess and warrior, and everything she writes elicits some deep understanding nod from me.

  • Maria Elena Roe •  January 27, 2017

    I am excited to read Notorious RBG! I bought my daughter I Dissent for a Christmas gift and we have enjoyed reading it together. I would love to continue reading about this amazing woman. (Really though, I am excited to read them ALL. Except Milk and Honey. I had two copies. I was drawn to the book, ordered it, read it and loved it. It helped me get through a tough time a few months ago. Then my sister gave me another copy for Christmas. Because she KNEW I’d love it. So I decide to donate one of the copies to the library so that more copies would be available.)

  • Marissa Sandell •  January 27, 2017

    Most excited for Discontent and its Civilizations – I love essay collections!

  • Alaina Morrissey •  January 27, 2017

    I’m a single mom and I need to escape into books sometimes. While they all sound glorious, Milk and Honey seems like a beautiful place to get lost in, to cry and laugh and empathize and rejoice.

  • Samantha Copple •  January 27, 2017

    I’m either most excited about Notorious RBG or The Sellout!

  • Traci Jacobson •  January 27, 2017

    Tie between the sell out and milk and honey

  • Lisa Merlini •  January 27, 2017

    Not gonna lie, I’m dying to read all of them. But the one I most crave is Notorious RBG — a badass book about a truly badass woman.

  • Cameron Barker •  January 27, 2017

    Notorious RBG pleaaaassseee

  • Desirae Pulido •  January 27, 2017

    milk and honey!!!

  • Jenna McLoughlin •  January 26, 2017

    Notorious RBG, because Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a complete and total BADASS.
