List of books. 

So, I had great intentions of blogging at least weekly to get all of my books in.  Thoughtful posts  that did justice to the wonderful material that I was reading.  But as sometimes happens, I bit off more than I could chew. I've decided to just list the books that I've read. Many of the books that I have read since I've last posted pertain to babies since we are also expecting a little boy on March 10th!   Pregnancy has been a lot of work, but it pretty awesome that he's in there growing and changing and getting ready to meet the world.
