In this last week I received quite a few books.
See what others received and maybe participate at Printed Page.

Your Best Birth: Know All Your Options, Discover the Natural Choices and Take Back the Birth Experience by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein – No I’m not pregnant but I’m still curious and I have been pregnant before. This is from Wellness Central at Hachette

The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America by Dr. Drew Pinsky and Dr. S. Mark Young – from HarperCollins. I’m not American but I figure we have about the same celebrity narcissism in Canada. This book interests me because I’m not crazy about celebrities and I don’t get why others are.

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger – from HarperCollins as well. In general I’m not fond of a lot of Dr. Laura’s advice but I was shocked last year to find I enjoyed her book, The Proper Care and Feeding of a Marriage and I’m a SAHM as was my mom so I wanted to read it.

The Man’s Book: The Essential Guide for the Modern Man by Thomas Fink – from Hachette. I just couldn’t resisit. I’m not a man but I wanted to see what was so essential for men to know. I am also showing it around to my hubby and all my male friends so I can include some of their thoughts in my review.

A Girl’s Guide to Modern European Philosophy by Charlotte Greig – regular readers know I don’t read much adult fiction but I thought I’d give this one a try. It’s from Other Press and I was approached by the author. It was originally published in the UK and was just published by Other Press on May 12.

Without Sin by J. Tomas – a book by Prizm which publishes books for the GLBTQ community. Without Sin is a teen novel that “explores a gay teen’s coming-of-age without being sentimental.”
