Great Books for Women
Because women say so!

For 30 years, participants in our book groups, reading retreats and literary travels have designated their Great Books—books that most intrigued, challenged and evoked strong response and discussion. More than 400 books have been chosen. All have been chosen by women readers.

The Great Books: Because Women Say So! offers the list of books three separate ways: alphabetically by title, with annotations; by author; and by genre (see below).

We have also included reading lists from our book groups, from 30 themed reading retreats and from our literary travels around the world, making The Great Books a valuable resource for individual readers and book groups.

Third Edition, 21 years of The Great Books, paperbound, 110 pages,
$12.95 + $2.50 shipping = $15.45 total
MN residents add $1.08 tax = $16.53 total

***We're sorry, the Third Edition is now out of print and we have no more copies for sale.***

The genres (we've created our own, of course).

Adventure: adding a thrill to life.
Anthology, Essay, Poetry, Novella & Short Story: capturing the essence, providing provocative moments.
The Arts: for beauty in our lives.
Biography, Autobiography, Memoir, Diary & Letters: history takes on a different appearance when learned through the reading of women's lives.
Culture Critique: these challenge the status quo.
Mysteries: for a quick escape try mysteries.
Nature: honoring this earth on which we live.
Novels: women read novels more than any other genre. How about you?
Science Fiction/Fantasy: this is not about spaceships but about possibilities.
Spirituality: the journey to one's center follows many paths as one honors being woman.
