Literary Women

This is a pretty good list of books written by women. There is a lot of breadth, from fiction to mysteries, political memoirs and cook books. I'm surprised how many of these I *have* read... but there are others have never heard of. Guess I am just a lit nerd after all!

Bold the ones you've read.
Italicize the ones you have wanted/might like to read.
??Place question marks by any titles/authors you've never heard of??
Put an asterisk if you've read something else by the same author.

This is a little long so click here if you want to read more!
