Reading List

It is proving to be a nearly impossible task to read books now that most of my "free time" goes into doing laundry and cleaning baby bottles, but I have a terrible memory so I want to keep track of the books I read somewhere.  Here's good as any I suppose.  Plus I kind of love the book list sections on other blogs I read because once I find a great suggestion off someone else's list, I can usually trust them to recommend others I'll like.  So here's my contribution.  Below are the books that I have read in previous years, with the ones that I would highly recommend in bold italics.  Enjoy or ignore, either works for me.

Note: At some point a few years back I decided to make these lists backwards.  I have no idea why I did this but I'm too lazy to change it now.  Also, all links are affiliate.
