This is a short post, just to let you know that Abe Books has posted a reader-generated list of the 75 greatest living female authors. Everyone should go check it out:
I’ve read books by only 21 of them, and really enjoyed the ones by 18 of them.
Also, if you don’t know Abe Books, they’re a super useful resource. If (when) Amazon lets me down regarding finding some esoteric book or I’m looking for a specific edition of a book, then Abe Books is extremely helpful.
