I wanted to create a place where women could go to find out what their friends are reading --- and which books their friends are enjoying --- or not enjoying. Who better to recommend a good book, but a close friend?!
Each visitor to the site must also contribute her opinions about the books she has read, so that our database can continue to expand. There are book reviews in newspapers and there are book reviews on various internet sites, but these reviews are written by strangers. Wouldn't you trust the opinions of people you know more than those of strangers? After all, you don't need to work for the N.Y. Times to have an opinion about a book.
This site is in memory of Natalie Berlin, my mother. She was a kind, generous, intelligent woman, who was the inspiration for Women's Book Reviews.

A Note from Richard Judy:
"I will be discussing my book, THRU: An Appalachian Trail Love Story, at the Roswell Library at 2 p.m. on June 13, as part of the Roswell Reads program.
I would like to have opportunities to make my book available to book clubs as a featured selection and to meet with the clubs to sign copies of my book and discuss it with the groups.
My book retails at $15.99 and the book club price is $14.00 which includes tax. All proceeds of the sale go to the nonprofit publisher, the Appalachian Trail Museum.
I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
