MEDIA REVIEWS
"Those who need it are certainly readers' advisory librarians and by extension, libraries that offer this service. When faced with a patron with the familiar query, 'What shall I read now?', these librarians can use Read On . . . Women's Fiction as a valuable starting place." - ARBAonline
"Vnuk (adult services, Glen Ellyn Public Library, Illinois) introduces readers and their advisors about what to read to a broad sampling of books available in subgenres of women's fiction. Following an introduction defining women's fiction in historical context, she lists succinctly-annotated books by categories including working women, dating, and 'mommy lit.' Especially engaging is the inclusion of less conventionally themed books: e.g., 'never hit `reply all,' ' stories told through emails and other communiques. The guide's reading lists can be used to create library print materials and on library web sites." - Reference & Research Book News
"...a current and lighthearted guide to hundred of popular titles. . . . With the growing number of women's fiction writers, Vnuk has written a concise, valuable, and useful reading guide that will be helpful to any librarian trying to identify new and pleasing titles for eager readers." - Public Libraries
