  1. This is really a great selection. I am keen to read Oprah’s book and Strong is the New Pretty. Of course, I would also love to get a copy of the book of JK Rowling since I am such a huge fan. Thank you for sharing this list.

  2. The kids at our school do a Women’s Month project where they pick someone and do a project. Most of these names are familiar ones from the project. These books all look awesome!
