What I've been reading lately

Hello bog-I miss you. Yes I have been posting Booking Through Thursday and Friday Fill-Ins fairly regularly, but I have not been posting many book reviews-and those that I have posted haven't had as many details as they used to.

I thought that when I went on maternity leave 8 weeks early that I would have tons of free time to read and blog, and knit, and relax. Well...I do..but I don't seem to be reading fiction very much right now-I've been reading pregnancy, baby, and breastfeeding books OH MY! 

When I found out I was pregnant I didn't want that to be all I blogged about, and I don't want this to become a baby blog. I LOVE baby blogs-or family blogs, especially if I know the person writing, but I started this blog to talk about my reading (oh ya and beading) endeavours. I realize that blogging about baby related books is still book related, but I don't really feel like sharing all my thoughts and opinions about that kind of material on this blog.

Ideas and beliefs about parenting are so individual and for some reason always under criticism from others. Maybe criticism isn't necessarily the right word to use, but everyone has an opinion about every single little thing to do with babies and parenting, and there is so much information and misinformation available these days! Many of the ideas I've come across have seemed intriguing, logical, illogical, crazy, obvious, "out there", nonsense, simple, name it!! Some of the ideas that I would have thought were too "out there" for me actually make a lot sense, while there are some things that I thought I was absolutely certain of that no longer seem logical to me!  A few of the books that I've either fully read, skimmed through, or look at daily are (in no particular order): Dr. Jack Newman's Guide to Breastfeeding, HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method, The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, Birthing From Within, The Pregnancy Bible, The Mother of All Pregnancy Books.

With that being said, I am still reading my usual type of books (I don't use the term for pleasure because I get immense pleasure from my baby related reading materials!), but the reviews may be slower in being posted!

Thanks to each and every one of you who take the time to read my blog-I really appreciate it (and your comments too)!!!
