 Happy Saturday!!  June... summer is here in full force!  Where I live, the temperatures are going into triple digits this weekend.  WHOA.  Being a library worker, I'd like to take a moment for a shameless plug for all your local libraries:  go check out their summer reading programs!  Many have gotten pretty easy, with online tracking of reading, and really fun, with activities counting toward your prize goals.  My little one is only seven weeks, but we've been going to Baby Storytimes at the local library!  I'm currently reading both Storm Warning by Billy Graham (overdue from the library) and Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (a book I've owned for three years but never read)... and I still keep picking up new books!  No matter how far "behind" I get on my to-read stack, I just can't seem to resist!  How about you?  What have you brought home lately?  What are you reading now?  Click on the link below to join the fun!  But first, here's what I've been bringing home...

Little Paris Bookshop Nina GeorgeComplete and Authoritative Guide Caring for Your Baby and Young Child Birth to Age 5 Steven Shelov Tanya Remer Altmann

I got two new, finished-copy books this week, and both for free!  The publisher sent me The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George in exchange for my fair and honest review (which I'll post on my other blog in the future) and The Complete and Authoritative Guide: Caring for Your Baby and Young Child Birth to Age 5 by Steven P. Shelov and Tanya Remer Altmann.  That one is HUGE!  Over 900 pages... I could use it as a doorstop if I decide it's too big (intimidating) to read!  lol

Nursing Mother's Companion Kathleen HugginsSigning Their Lives Away Denise KiernanNight Circus Erin MorgensternGolden Spruce Vaillant

And of course I've continued to collect library books (even while I have one overdue currently)!  The Nursing Mother's Companion by Kathleen Huggins was recommended to me by my cousin/lactation consultant.  I know nothing about it, but she said it'd be a good reference to have on hand.  Then my aunt recommended Signing Their Lives Away: The Fame and Misfortune of the Men Who Signed the Declaration of Independence by Denise Kiernan and Joseph D'Agnese (probably because I majored in Revolutionary American History in college), The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (I know- totally shameful that I haven't read this yet- I only hear good things about it), and The Golden Spruce: A True Story of Myth, Madness, and Greed by John Vaillant (I know nothing about this one, but I totally trust my aunt's recommendations- they've always been great).

And to conclude this post... a pic of the little one at his first Storytime!  He was totally into it.  :)

  4. Great picture of you and little one. I understand about how the TBR pile just keeps growing. Like you I just keep buying and hope to get around to reading soon.

  5. Awe! What a cutie! Storytime is a favorite in this house, too! (And at the library, of course!)
    I ended up with two copies of that 900 page book! It's definitely big enough to use as a doorstop. And helpful, too!
    Have a great week!

  11. Super sweet picture of you two <3

  12. Your little guy is so adorable! I love your new books this week too. :)

  13. I love the idea of Baby Storytimes!
    The Night Circus is one I hope to check out from my library at some point. I hope you really enjoy it. The Little Paris Bookshop is one I had my eye on and might look into it more next year. Happy reading!

  14. Hi there!
    If you are breastfeeding, you WILL USE the Nursing book, guaranteed! There are doctors out there that are NOT into women nursing, and if you are doing it, this will come in VERY handy if you ever come across one of those Dr's like I did who was AGAINST it! Yes! Unbelievable, huh! You are VERY LUCKY, though, to have a lactation consultant IN the family!! You have a BEAUTIFUL baby there!! Enjoy EVERY second because the time just FLIES BY! Mine are now 23 and 18! OLD!!! LOL!

  15. Awww! Love your little guy...he's so cute! And very nice haul! Happy reading! Visitors to my blog are always welcome(so are followers!), so stop by and see my StS here.

  16. Cute pic. That's fantastic that you are taking your little one to the library:-)

    Your baby is so cute. I am currently reading "The True Story of Baker and Taylor: the library cats who left their pawprints on a small town ...and the world".

  19. Our temps are getting into the three digits too. I hate this part of summer. :-( Looks like storytime was a fun one!

  20. Great books :) I have nursed two kids and The Nursing Mother's Companion would have been good to have. Hope it works well for you. Have a great wek :)

  21. I haven't read the The Night Circus either but I really want to! Enjoy :)
