Hey all.

I'm in a little bit of a pickle at the moment. I'm not open about my bisexuality to my parents although the majority of my close friends know.

I really want to read some GLB books to see how other people cope and to break through some of the stereotypes in my head (because even I have them and i'm bi myself)

I have a couple of books in mind. and Mum and Dad have been asking what i would like for my birthday.

Do you guys have any suggestions as to how i can ask for that kind of reading material without them sussing i am myself bisexual?

I took a quick glance at my bookshelf and these two books seemed like good choices:

Girl Power by Hillary Carlip is a book containing writings from all kinds of girls, including bisexual and homosexual girls.

Listen Up: Voices from the Next Feminist Generation edited by Barbara Findlen is a brilliant book for a million reasons. It also includes writings by bisexual and homosexual women and I would suggest this book even for girls that do not identify as queer or feminist.
