What I Have Been Reading

Relative unemployment means that I have loads more time for reading. I really love to read and am grateful there is such a great library on post. 

Bringing up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman

Lane and I are still a ways away from having children, but I heard an interview with the author on NPR and was intrigued. I spent a summer in France and lived with a host family which gave me a brief look at French parenting. Although I wasn't so crazy about the author in the interview (I thought she came off very snobby), when I saw the book at the library I decided to check it out. I really enjoyed this book and finished it in about three days. It definitely good to read before you have children, as many of the lessons are geared toward newborns. 

Dune Road by Jane Green

I didn't like this book at all. I generally like Jane Green, and really liked her book Jemima J. However, I found this really hard to get through. None of the characters made any sense, and all the relationships seemed totally forced and awkward. This is probably one of my least favorites in quite a while. 

I am getting ready to start reading Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. I like his books and find them really engaging to read. 

Are y'all reading anything good? I am always looking for recommendations and suggestions.
