Happy International Women's Day!!!

Happy International Women's Day!! Today is the day to celebrate women around the world.

Trying to find just the right book related topic to tie into to
today's theme of celebrating women on 
International Women's Day was a tad difficult!
Eventually, I chose to focus on the women who have 
won had the Nobel Peace Prize.

Below are ten different book titles by ten different female
Nobel Peace Prize Winners
from around the world.

Women change the world and make it a better place for all of us.
