Hey thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck with trying. I wish I got to "try". My life is full of "oops".

Marina said...

pluckymama--I got a really late start to this parenting thing, so it's one of those "now or never" situations.

Good luck working out your bf issues... my son and I had a really rough time with it, to the point where I was pumping and bottle-feeding for a few months. When he finally clued in, it was great.

Good luck with the weight I know exactly how you feel..I read You On A Diet and I learned alot from it..I did my first TT feel free to stop by and take a look

cj said...

Let me know what you think of number 2. I'm in the same boat and could use some help but trying to figure out what's good is impossible with all the diet books out there.

Sounds like an interesting list. Good luck with it.

Thanks for dropping by on my side.


Nicole said...

Thanks for stopping by my TT! I know what you mean with the "need to read next" list. I'm trying to stick to mine, too, but keep ending up with books that aren't on the "Must Read" list jumping to the front of the TBR pile...

I did like The Black Swan, though it's the only one on your list that I've read. It followed what I knew of the Swan Lake story nicely, while still leaving room for interpretation. Hope you enjoy it!

Marina said...

Rae--thanks! Your T13 was interesting...makes me wish for cable.

cj--I'll try to remember to point you to the review once I have it up.

Nicole--I have books that wyrm their way up there, too, like Deathly Hallows, but I knew that would happen! I was just trying to come up with a book-related list that wasn't simply the opposite of last week's!

Lesley said...

Great list! The How the Irish Saved Civilization sounds interesting. I've heard that You on a Diet is a good one. I keep meaning to pick it up. Happy TT!

It's Me... Maven said...

I'd love to know more about that Molly Ivins book!!

SaturnCat said...

Thanks for stopping by my T13! Yours, and your blog, is very cool -- there is never enough time to read, and I'm always looking for more books, anyway. Have a good weekend!

Danica/Dream said...

Wow, interesting books! quite the variety. THanks for stopping by.

The Crux said...

I especially like #10. Molly was one of my favorite political writers, God rest her soul.

Carrie K said...

I really enjoyed How the Irish Saved Civilization. Which reminds me, I've got his new one still unread. So many books. So little time.

I miss Molly Ivins so much. I can't imagine suffering through the next electionw without her pithy comments.
