ok...I got to you by way of Nancy M. who Is my friend. I love your book list. you gave me some refreshing ideas for new reads! New mommyship - I remember those days well. I propped a book on my kid's back while she nursed! Take time for yourself Trixie B! And if the picture is of you...you're cute as a button!
Yep, I've read every chapter in the breastfeeding book so far except for the one on weaning. There's even a chapter in there just for husbands on what breastfeeding wives will be going through and how they can "father comfort" the baby. Seeing Maria successfully doing it is inspiring...it's definitely a big job.
Have you read Parenting Magazine? I think their articles are interesting, quick reads. Oh, and there was also an article on cloth diapers in Time this week called "Diapers Go Green." Do you have any suggestions for parenting books?
How did you like "Guardian of the Horizon"? I am having a difficult time staying focused with it ~ getting confused of who is whom and finding myself rereading parts over and over again (I'm still in the beginning right after Merasen's arrival to England).
I read The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble before I read Alphabet Weekends. I really enjoyed The Reading Group and was slightly disappointed with Alphabet Weekends. It wasn't "great" but I would still read more of her books - it was a good read for summertime when we were traveling.
I read Eat, Pray, Love and got bogged down. She complained constantly in the pray section. I ended up listening to the last part on tape and did enjoy that. There were a few in my book club that loved it and some that were luke warm. Now that I am finished I am glad I did finish, but just about gave up!
Hey! I want to know how you like "The Secret Life of Bees", too. I have it on my wishlist, which should probably be on the 'plans to read' instead but for now I'm only putting books that I have in my possession in the 'plans to read' category. When Wade is traveling I have plenty of time to read. Well, I can't read any suspense novels while he's on the road. Especially since I'm such a wimp and scared of my own shadow....
