Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own by Kate Bolick

Special thanks to Building with Books for sponsoring this post. 

Here's a book that both `examines what was once a dirty word and elevates it to a lifestyle choice that's filled with small and big pleasures and above all, zero regrets. 

In Spinster, author Kate Bolick examines the pleasures and possibilities of remaining single. She invites readers into her very carefully considered, passionately lived life as a single woman, and looks into the reasons who over 100 million American women - a number that continues to grow - choose to remain unmarried.

What was once considered unconventional is now an absolutely unprecedented demographic shift. Bolick looks into the lives of women who chose to live as a -- dare I say it -- spinster, while also reminding "spinsters" that they really are unbounded and free to savor life. Part memoir and part cultural exploration, this is a book that takes an in-depth look at what it means to live a wonderfully authentic life as a single woman.
