Thankfully, there is no shortage of great books to read. Whether you prefer fiction, autobiographies, or self-help books, there’s a book for you! Being working women, it’s hard to prioritize what to read (and find time to actually read it). The CGS Team is sharing 6 books that every woman should find the time to read. These books spark motivation, open your mind, and really get the wheels turning.

5 thoughts on “6 Books Every Girl Should Read”
The form of “there” used in the last description is the wrong one – it should read a “love like theirs”
Thanks Jess! It has been fixed. 🙂
Still wrong. Should be theirs–no apostrophe.
Guess we need to read some books on proper English 🙂 Thanks everyone!
Love that Why Not Me is first on this list! It’s been on the top of my To Read list for a while now!
