Do you talk about many parenting books?

I'm a new mom, so I've been going through parenting books like water since before the LO was born. (He's 7 months now.) I just finished "The Other Baby Book," and I'm waiting for "Beyond the Sling" to come to my library. I have such a long to-read list, it doesn't give me much time for the stuff I used to read.
My most recent non-parenting books were "Love you More" and "Sold."
"Love You More" was a suspense, thriller, mystery type book. I guess I liked it alright. It was strange that as I was reading I kept thinking, "Why am I reading this?" but I couldn't put it down and finished in about 2 days. Maybe it just felt overly dramatic.
"Sold" was very good. I don't remember where in the world it's based, but it's about a girl that is sold into prostitution by her step father. Based on real accounts from girls that have been rescued from that situation.

Hi Heather! Congrats on becoming a new mom and Welcome to the group!

We really do not talk about parenting here, instead we use this as an escape. We try to read one or two books per month and then discuss them.

Please take a look around - choose a book and jump on in!

Also, right after my LO was born, I read "The Midwife's Confession." It was also a little over the top, but pretty heart-wrenching, especially if you read it while holding your very first newborn!
