I was thinking about my book geneology.  How reading one book has opened up a world of other books and authors.  Leading me on a path of discovery.  My library is extensive but I realized that the books that have resonated with me the most have been about what lies close to a woman's heart.  Spirituality, creativity, love seems to be the thread that runs through these books.  Maybe it will get you to thinking about your own favorites.  Enjoy!
