Publishers Description
Vibrates with encouragement for women who want to explore and enjoy the world of books Gladys Hunt, long-time advocate of reading and author of the cherished Honey for a Child s Heart, has written this new book for busy women who want a wider worldview and stimulus for intellectual and emotional growth. Honey for a Woman s Heart explores: * The wonder of words, language, and reading * What good books offer thoughtful readers * What makes a good book * The value of reading fiction * Best books in genres of fiction, nonfiction, spirituality, and poetry * How to enjoy the best of books: the Bible * The pleasure of sharing books with others * Something for everyone, no matter what age or reading experience * Recommendations for over 500 books to enjoy Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24"

From Publishers Weekly
The author of the parenting staple Honey for a Child's Heart expands her role to become a chatty adviser for Christian women interested in exploring the literary world. Hunt's passion for books is infectious as she discourses on a broad range of issues from "Why Read?" to the classics, genre fiction, nonfiction, book groups, poetry, the Bible, making time to read and a host of related topics. As well as listing her choices for best books in each of the categories she discusses, Hunt adds recommendations from outside sources (including editors, housewives, librarians and Mitford maven Jan Karon), which are boxed on the pages. The resulting compilation of titles resembles a list one might obtain from a well-read book group. Hunt also tackles some of the touchier issues for conservative Christian readers, such as the value of reading selected books that contain profanity and sexual situations. There's homespun wisdom ("It's a good rule to never pronounce judgments on books you haven't read"), as well as moral commentary (Hunt calls Snow Falling on Cedars "beautifully written, but with some unnecessary sexual scenes"). Interspersed throughout the text are her effusive accolades such as "My all-time favorite" or "that title is the best!" Hunt's gushy asides are easily pardoned because they're just one part of her unbridled enthusiasm. It's a satisfyingly eclectic mix for book junkies, which doubles as an introduction to reading for the reluctant reader. "The right thing said in the right way, ah, that's the delight of good books," writes Hunt. There's much to delight in here. (Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about Honey For A Woman's Heart?

A "must have" book for book lovers  Jan 7, 2010
I keep this book in a small stack of favorite books beside my bed. It is the kind of book one can read through at one time or come back for a chapter here and there.

The real value in this book is it comes from a "Christian" perspective but brings so many wonderful authors and books one would never find if they stuck to the Christian shelves at the bookstore.

While I found everything Mrs. Hunt recommended to be excellent, I was rather surprised by the recommendations by some of the guest readers. Just use a little more discernment when reading those titles if you prefer books with no language or, ummm... uncomfortable situations for Christian ladies.

Otherwise, this is the best "books about books" I've ever read.
A must have for any Christian Woman who reads!  May 26, 2009
If you are like me and love to read, but have found that at times you pick up a book and then get taken by surprise because you realize the book has content that you realize it isn't wise to set before your eyes and mind, then this is a wonderful book for you to get.

Gladys Hunt first talks about reading itself--why women do read and why it's important for us to read! It was refreshing, convicting, and encouraging to me. My husband is always encouraging me to read more--rather than watch television =)

Then she talks about the different genres of fiction and the authors that are worth reading. Scattered throughout the book, she has lists of books submitted by acquaintances and friends of hers. I think that a lot of Christian women stick to Christian inspirational fiction because it is lighthearted and they feel they can trust what the book is going to be about and that it's going to have a happy ending. But, Gladys Hunt has suggestions for all sorts of books that are worth reading--and I would say even important to read because they help us see outside of ourselves and understand the world better.

I highly recommend this book! The other two books in the series: Honey for a Teen's Heart, and Honey for a Child's Heart are also very worthy of reading. She is not extreme in her views and takes a very balanced protective, but not sheltering view of what children and teens should and should not read.
Read for life  Sep 16, 2008
Honey for a Woman's Heart is a great resource for any woman who likes to read and does not want to waste her time. Gladys Hunt gives a wide variety of suggestions for quality literature and offers a wide range of types and topics. I got many new ideas for books I had never before considered reading.
A book about books  Sep 7, 2008
This is such a wonderful book. It makes me hungry to read every time I open it! Great recommendations through out.
Love this book!  Sep 14, 2007
Both myself and my husband have enjoyed this book and "Honey for a Child's Heart". We have not yet read "Honey for a Teen's Heart", but it is on the shelf waiting for us when we are ready, and our daughter is closer to her teen years. The descriptions of the books she recommends are great for deciding if the book is something you might be interested in, yet she and her friends, do not ruin the stories for you. This is a great book, highly recommended for Christian families, but anyone can benefit from the awesome books on her lists. Her encourangement to make reading a wonderful manner in which to connect with those you love, is of great importance more now than ever. Please write, "Honey for a Man's Heart"!! Thankfully, many of the women's book recommendations are suitable for a man as well.
