Women Who Read Are Dangerous

I thought the cover of this book was very appropriate. 
I think Louisa would have enjoyed it too.

I so enjoyed reading everyones book suggestions on last week's post 
that I feel it is only right to share them in one place. 
I thought of organising them to perfection but have to admit 
I am beyond that at the moment and am going to just list them for you. 
Apologies in advance for any spelling errors.

'A Devonshire based bookaholic, sock-knitting quilter
 who is a community nurse in her spare time.'
It looks good!

  1. I have to check out that book! LOVE the title! :) So far, I am loving the book I am reading today. Have a wonderful week,

  2. Hope you're going to bed with a good book. I'm just about to do the same ;-) Hmm - will take that list with me on my travels. Done the classics, but it might be good to get into a few of those I've missed out on in the last 15 years of French reading!

  3. WOW Jeanne,
    What a list. I'm going to print it off, so that I can take it with me when I go in search of a new read. What a brilliant post and a wonderful way to get some ideas for some good books. XXXX

  4. Oh boy, I am printing this out to keep!

  5. Wow what a list! I have copied and pasted it in my bookmarks. I am currently reading The Help. Good read so far. Now I have a huge list to choose when I am all finished!

    Love the cover of that book too. I think that could be cool if you could print that off and hang it in the library or den, hmmmm! Might get in trouble with the whole copyright laws, but neat idea non the less.


  6. Jeanne, this is a wonderful resource! I'm going to bookmark this post and come back to it for inspiration. Meredy xo.
    p.s. thanks for being you.

  7. Hey Jeanne
    What a fabulous response and list to match.. definitely bookmarking this one for future reference!! Have a great day.. and thanks for your lovely comments.. xx Julie

  8. Yes, i agree. We are dangerous!!HAHAHA. I am reading James Allen right now. He is a writer from the 1800 in England.
    Thanks for following my blog!!! SO nice of you.

  9. I have printed the list and posted it on my board. I love it. Thanks so much for posting it.

  10. Jeanne
    I see some favorites, some on my To Read list and some intriguing new titles. Love the Dove Grey Reader Scribbles. Great source for reviews. Thanks for sharing.

  11. What an interesting list, and in a way it's all about you, Jeanne, as this is what the people who read your blog like to read.

  12. Dear Jeanne,

    I do visit, but I don't leave comments. Not very charming de ma part, but to prove my admiration for your blog I have a little something for you chez moi.

    I took notes from your book list. Thank you so much.

  13. Jeanne,

    What a wonderful list of suggestions! I've read many but there are some I must get to. I received your beautiful postcard today! I mailed yours last Monday. Thank you for participating in the postcard exchange.
