Between the Covers: The Book Babes' Guide to a Woman's Reading Pleasuresby Ellen Heltzel and Margo Hammond
Synopses & Reviews
With wit and wisdom, the bibliophile's Ebert & Roeper recommend more than 600 books based on what women care about most. Between the Covers is organized around their wide-ranging curiosity — about themselves, friends and family, the larger world — and their concerns, from health to sex to managing their finances. With such sections as "Babes We Love" (Role Models Real and Imagined), "The Babe Inside" (Focusing on Body and Soul), and "Love, Sex, and Second Chances," this unique collection of fiction and nonfiction reflects how women really read.
Two veteran critics — The Book Babes — offer a reading guide with attitude, tailored to every mood and stage of a woman's life.
