Stacking The Shelves [185]

 Here in the Southeast US, it's been raining since early September.  (Only a very slight exaggeration.)  Wonderful reading weather!  (Horrible muddy dog weather.)  I've been continuing to try to be responsible about how many books I bring home, and have been making a dent in my Everest-sized to-read list instead.  You'll notice that I've already read and reviewed one of the books in this week's stack!

NewWild Ones Jon MooallemSevere Mercy Sheldon VanaukenWild Ones: A Sometimes Dismaying, Weirdly Reassuring Story About Looking at People Looking at Animals in America by Jon Mooallem: I'm part of a consortium of educators in a multi-year program training us to provide better STEM opportunities to the youth we work with, and the leader of the group gave us all a copy of this book.  I've read an excerpt, and it seems really good!  Looking forward to reading more.

A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken:  recommended by a pastor at our church, and I was able to buy a copy that includes bonus C.S. Lewis material!  (Sheldon Vanauken and C.S. Lewis were friends.)


Little Brother Cory DoctorowToys Meet Snow Emily JenkinsA-Word Joy Preble

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow:  a dystopian YA that I plan to read and then review here on Tynga's!  So look for that soon.

Toys Meet Snow by Emily Jenkins:  a cute picture book that I wanted to check out before buying for a relative for Christmas.

The A-Word by Joy Preble: already read and reviewed!  Click HERE for the review.

Easy Labor William Camann Kathryn J Alexander

Easy Labor: Every Woman's Guide to Choosing Less Pain and More Joy During Childbirth by William Camann and Kathryn J. Alexander:  because there are decisions regarding birth plans and pain relief (or not) that I will need to make sooner rather than later...  :)

  1. Great post, as always. I love the sound of The A-Word but I've not read the first book so I'm going to look out for them both and will add them to my TBR. I love finding out about books that I've not heard of before, it's one of the many great things about Stacking the Shelves.

  2. EVERY LABOR IS DIFFERENT, JUST LIKE EVERY WOMAN IS DIFFERENT! REALLY study and practice ANY meditation book you can get! It SO would have helped for me!!! I was WAY stressed out for my first, 19 hours NO pain meds! My 2nd came in less than 2 HOURS by the time we got to the hospital, so it was fast, but HARD, PAINFUL labor. The more you can tune into your body, the better!
    I wish you the BEST of luck with it!!

  3. Nice haul of books. I hope you love all your new books.

  6. Congratulations on your pregnancy! As others have said, every birth is different, just remember to keep flexible and don't hold tight to expectations. You got some great books! I will check out The A Word.

  7. Love, Love, LOVE Little Brother. I would like to see a high school lesson plan using both 1985 and Little Brother to discuss the granting or limiting of power to the government.

    Here's wishing you a joyful delivery and great times to come with your youngling.

  8. A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken looks like a very interesting read. I haven't checked the synopsis, but from the cover it looks to be a historical fiction. :)
