Writing by Women - Building a 1001 Books Before You Die

A pet project of mine that I'm essentially working on whenever I read a book penned by a woman. I haven't read many of these, and many of the ones I have I wouldn't include: I just put everything applicable for the sake of a more interesting list. Restricting it to one book an author certainly slows the process down (as can be seen, I didn't even hit 1001, and I still might have missed a duplicate here or there), but I've around a half century, if not longer, left of reading in me. I'd at least like to come up with one that's purely fiction, perhaps even purely novels, but I've a long way to go before that's in any way consolidated.
