Girl Travel Books on Toronto�s Bloor Street
shop in person or try the art of cybershopping...

Evelyn Hannon

The most fashionable shopping street in Toronto is Bloor Street -- a wonderful area that caters to the whims of the rich, the famous and the many, many fashion-conscious wanna-bees. A stroll along these sidewalks, from Yonge to Avenue Road, allows for mouthwatering window shopping at the likes of Armani, Cartier, Prada, Louis Vitton and Chanel.

Bloor Street

It is here (55 Bloor Street) amongst all of these glorious fashion treasures that Indigo, one of Toronto�s largest, newest and nicest bookstores can be found. Definitely a treasure in its own right, this is where Journeywoman does all of her own book browsing and shopping. It is also where this article�s recommended reading list was born. Happy browsing, everybody!

On Her Holiday Night Table...

Memoirs of a GeishaMemoirs of a Geisha
Author: Arthur Golden

In Memoirs of a Geisha , we enter a Japanese world where appearances are paramount; where a girl�s virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. It is a unique work of fiction -- at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful and completely unforgettable. This novel spent over a year on the New York Times Bestseller List and Journeywoman can certainly understand why!

The Older Adventuress...

Girls with the Grandmohter FacesThe Girls With the Grandmother Faces
Author: Frances Weaver

Frances Weaver finds life astonishing. A widow with four children and eight grandchildren, she discovered in her fifties the joys of writing and sold over 100,000 copies of the original Girls With The Grandmother Faces in a self-published edition. With wit and common sense, Frances tackles moving, making new friends in your sixties, travel, support groups and even sex in this lifesaving book that she regards not as a �how to,� but a �why-not.�

She tells her travel stories...

airplaneFemme d�Aventure
Author: Jessica Maxwell

Jessica Maxwell will hop on a plane at a moment�s notice to pursue any of the world�s wonders -- from the elusive Alaskan ice worm to the legendary taiman salmon of Outer Mongolia -- despite her fear of flying. In Femme d�Aventure, she recounts tales of trailing humpback whales in the Pacific, braving whitewater rapids on the River of No Return, chasing wild mustangs on the Wyoming frontier and trotting the globe from Ireland to Venice and beyond. M-m-m-m good!

A Readers�s Review...

Leanne P of Edmonton, Canada writes:

penThis may not conform to a 'typical' Journeywoman guidebook suggestion, written by women, but it's a great book. It's called Dear Exile -- the true story of two friends separated (for a year) by an ocean, by Hilary Liftin and Kate Montgomery. Just published this year, it's about two women friends, one who goes to Africa and corresponds for a year with her friend who's in New York. Fabulous reading!

Women�s words on books...

bootI�ve thought a lot about this and I have come to the conclusion that fitting people with books is just about as difficult as fitting women with shoes.
(Sylvia Beach, Shakespeare and Company, 1956 from the New Beacon Book of Quotations by Women)

Women�s words on reading...

happy dogIf, at the end of the saddest, the most disappointing and hurtful day, each one of us may come to a quiet room somewhere, and that room her own, if there is a light burning above white pillows, and a pile of books waiting under the light, then indeed we may still praise Allah, that He has not terminated all the Delights.
(Kathleen Norris, These I Like Best, 1941 from the New Beacon Book of Quotations by Women)
