Allow me to extend a great big thank you to Jessica Zellers for this edition. Non-fiction and Women are so often forgotten, that this book is a double pleasure to browse. I'm a non-fiction fan so this was a nice fit for me.

As all good readers' advisory titles do, this one covers the genre quite well, including a definition, the rationale of why we need it, what has been included and what has not. I like the breakdown of chapters, quickly jumping to my favorite subject, Adventure and Travel, and quickly adding many possibilities for future reading. Then back to others to fill in our library collection, dipping and learning along the way. The annotations are concise and interesting, the where to start and fiction read-alikes, appreciated. Further resources, a subject, title/author round out the whole. Women's Nonfiction: A Guide to Reading Interests is fine addition to the Real Stories series and one that I'll be certain to revisit.
