The Satellite Sisters are fed up. The co-hosts of a nationally syndicated ABC Radio Networks show, a Web site and an e-mail newsletter say they are tired of receiving fluffy self-help books in response to their efforts to focus on nonfiction books covering real women's real lives. The five real-life sisters - Julie, Liz, Sheila, Monica and Lian Dolan - host a national talk radio program. The sisters' book club highlights a work of nonfiction about the life of a noteworthy woman by selecting a memoir, autobiography or biography and then interviewing the writers and discussing the book.
