Literacy is a gal's best friend. When life is headed toward the big rinse cycle, a good book can make everything seem fresh again. Or something like that.

Since my mom's a librarian, it only makes sense to follow in her footsteps (sort of) and provide you with some reading recommendations. Here's a collection of books that all women should try reading - and maybe a few savvy boys too. Some of the books are adult in nature, but all worth your time to read at some point in your life.

Email me if you think I need to add a few books to this list!

While you're at it, click on the book cover or name of the books to go buy them at!

Happy reading!

In case you're wondering which books I've been wanting to read,
here's My Amazon Wishlist.
