looked up those books

I looked up books on Amazon to see which books about FTMs I'd read and given away to the university GLBT organization.  Ones I'm pretty sure I gave away were Just Add Hormones: An Insider's Guide to the Transsexual Experience by Matt Kailey, Sex Changes: Transgender Politics by Patrick Califia, Transmen and FTMs: Identities, Bodies, Genders and Sexualities by Jason Cromwell and From the Inside Out: Radical Gender Transformation, FTM and Beyond by Morty Diamond.

The librarian who picked books for sexuality studies at a university where I worked picked some good ones.  She got Transgender Warriors and Transgender Liberation: Beyond Pink and Blue by Leslie Feinberg, and I read both of those.  The library also had Body Alchemy by Loren Cameron, which is a very good book.

I'm fairly sure that along the line I read The Testosterone Files: My Hormonal and Social Transformation from Female to Male by Max Wolf Valerio.  I don't know if I read it, but I'd certainly heard about FTM: Female-to-Male Transsexuals in Society by Holly Devor, who is now Aaron Devor.

Going more into genderqueer and intersex writings and activism, I'd also read a few things by Raven Kaldera along the way, and heard of Kate Bornstein, Matt Bernstein Sycamore (a.k.a. Mattilda) and Cheryl Chase (now Bo Laurent).

I gave away other books of essays, but can't remember all the titles.  I think one was GenderQueer: Voices from Beyond the Sexual Binary.  That went to the library where I was working, as that librarian wanted to order it.

Looking back, I did my fair share of reading on these topics.
