Meet the new member of the family: I've started another Weblog focusing on a book collection of mine, the book series known as "Career Romances for Young Moderns."
Career Romances for Young Moderns were a series of books published from the 1950s-1970s about young women striking out in different career fields. But because these were career romances, the books usually ended when the women gleefully give up their career for a man. The books paint a hilarious picture of a business world that's thankfully out-of-date. They're a little hard to come by today, but can be found in used bookstores and online. I cherish them for their innocence, and I also use them as a tool to remind myself how thankful I am not to be job-hunting as a woman in 1950s America.
I hope to go through the copies I own and share their dated and jovial weirdness. Sure, it's mockery, in a way, I guess but I hope you'll also see through that to my genuine fondness for a genre long disappeared.
