  1. I’m feeling a certain way because of the fact that the only book that I’ve read on your list is the Lorax lol, I’ll have to look into some of these.

      LoL….ya know, 99% of the time I’ve never seen any of my friends’ fave movies, so I know what you mean! The books on my list aren’t JUST great reads, each one of them imparts knowledge or perspective of a subject otherwise maybe missed. I guess I could say these books “blew me away”!

    Some of these books I have actually read, so at least I don’t feel guilty like I do with some “required” lists. But the sad reality is that I don’t read books anymore. I do read a great deal- just not books.

    I remember reading The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, La Leche League, and really didn’t like it. It made me almost scared to try!

    I’m doing a really neat thing, 52 in 52, where I’m trying to read 52 books in 52 weeks. It’s a lot of fun, and going well so far!
