I love to read. Nursing is therefore perfect for me. I read a lot now. While I was pregnant...I don't know, it was weird, reading was bottom of the list for me. Practically the only thing I read while pregnant was a new chapter of What to Expect When You're Expecting each month. And the Sears' breastfeeding book [which, Chas, I have to take back my dis of that book. Yes, it has a line drawing of a woman bfing an infant and a toddler at the same time (guh-ross!!!!!), but I credit that book with helping me get Baby E latched on correctly before she was even a day old. By myself.].
In August I read the following:
London is the Best City in America – Laura Dave B-
The Taking – Dean Koontz B-
Julie & Julia – Julie Powell B
Three Wishes – Liane Moriarty B+
Baby Proof – Emily Giffin B-
Yes, I keep a list of books I read. And grade them. So I'm a nerd. Like I care.
I am sad to report I have not found an "A" quality book in some time. Right now I am reading Crazy Ladies by Michael Lee West, and I think it might get a B+ or an A-. It's quite good. I'm also reading A Midwife's Tale by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich; it will probably get the same grade.
Anyone have a book they can give an unqualified "A" to? I'd love to read something really satisfying.
