Karen’s Top Ten Books

Books are conveyors of ideas and emotions. Engaging, entertaining and educational, literature of any genre is a vessel of human drama. Call me old-fashioned (and I do acknowledge the importance of eBooks), but I still love the feeling of holding an actual physical work of fiction or non-fiction in my hands. Here are a few works that I have enjoyed over the years and that informed and inspired Femoir. Click on each title for more information.
