Aubrey has created a GR group containing all 508 books from this list. Please check it out here:
A Reader's Guide to the Worlds of Women's Writing

"Here is an articulate guide to more than 500 books written by women, a unique resource that allows readers the joy of discovering new authors as well as revisiting familiar favorites. Organized by such themes as Art, Choices, Families, Growing Old, Growing Up, Places and Homes, Power, and Work, this reference book presents classic contemporary works, from lady Nijo's thirteenth-century Japanese court diaries to books by authors including Toni Morrison, Alice Hoffman, Nadine Gordimer, and Isabel Allende. With annotated entries that capture the flavor of each book and seven cross-referenced indexes, 500 Great Books by Women is a one-of-a-kind guide for all readers and book lovers that celebrates and recommends some of the very best writing by women."

Aubrey (korrick) Thanks for promoting the group, Jimmy. Despite the clean 500 moniker, there's actually 508 works featured in the original book, for accuracy's sake. ;)
