Re: 102 of the Greatest Books by Female Authors

One of my favourite Space Travel (non-fiction) was written by a female:

Packing for Mars by Mary Roach

There is an entire chapter about pooping in space. Yes, I kid you not. Good read, highly recommend this book.

"That's a dumb question, Miss Glenn’s Organ."
