Women Challenge

This is Peek a Book's second edition of the “Women Challenge” and my first attempt.

This challenge will make us want to read more books of any kind written by women, so choose whatever you like and get involved!  She wants us to set a level and, if we like, indicate our three favourite women writers, in order to suggest new names to other participants as well.

Here are mine (they are just the first ones coming to my mind):

* Dorothy L Sayers
* Jane Austen
* Kerry Greenwood

For complete rules, click on the link above. It's never too late to join!
* challenge goes from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014;
