This book has been my most reliable reference ever since it came out, leading me to good books that I wouldn't have otherwise known about. Titiles are organized according to large themes such as: ethics, art, family, wives and lovers, growing old. A paragraph or two gives information about the title.

An articulate and intentionally eclectic reader's guide covering a wide range of novels, narratives, biographies, and more, with more than 500 entries.

By going through this book, I found many books that I otherwise never would have known about. I'm excited to be able to start reading these now.
Great reference!

What a fun read!!! i did not read this book straight thru. and i made a game to see how many of the 500 books i had read. my result was that i had read at least 1-2 books in each catagory.
the books that sounded good, i looked up and requested them. a fun way to look up books.

Women are strong writers. This book proves out the struggle and the talent of many women we have heard of and others we haven't.

This book is more a text book or sylabus than what I thought it might be but overall a good book.
