Women Know Everything... By Karen Weekes - Book Review

Women Know Everything - 3,241 Quips, Quotes & Brilliant Remarks was first published in 2007. It has since had a little face lift. With it's new design and lots more words of wisdom I can honestly say every woman should have this book on their shelf!

This book is full of sayings from women of all ages and walks of life. With lots of names I recognize, like Betty White, Tina Fey, Erma Bombeck and more; and lots of new names, this was a book I couldn't put down!

The quotes are broken into sections on life, love, fashion, dieting... tons of great topics! Some of the words made me laugh out loud, some made me think, some even made me tear up. Here are a few of my favorites:

"Think of stretch marks as pregnancy service stripes." - Joyce Armor

"I don't go by the rule book. I lead from the heart, not the head." - Princess Diana

"Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backward and in high heels." -Faith Whittlesey

"The family - that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our own inmost hearts, ever quite wish to." - Dodie Smith

It's an easy read. I skipped around to areas of interest... checked out some areas of controversy... looked for names I recognized. It's just a really fun book!
