Things I read now

I have been an avid reader since roughly the fourth grade, before that I had a really hard to time learning how to read (go figure teaching a kid to read phonetically after just beating a speech impediment). Also because of a little something called AR points (accelerated reader) where you read a book, took a test online, and were rewarded with a certain number of points based on the difficulty (length) or the book and accuracy of your answers  (was your friend who also just read it near by?). The best part of AR was that you got to use class time to take the test!!!! "It's time for spelling and grammar (just so you know, I misspelled grammar, thanks spell check!) lessons Paige (my name) "Gee, I would Ms. Justice, but I have to take this test, O darn!" (In retrospect probably should have skipped those AR points, you just got to have your name on the bulletin board if you were in the top ten anyways.

Ok so to bring that rather long and unnecessary tangent back to what I was originally going to write, here's my current reading list and what I used to read pre-bump.

Current library books
HaperCollins Complete book of baby care:from birth to three years

First Aid fast for babies and children: Emergency procedures for all parents and carergivers

The New Mom's Companion;Care for youself while you Care for your Newborn

The Diaper Diaries: The Real Poop on a New Mom's First year

Pregnancy Sucks: What to do when your Miracle makes you miserable (Actually bought this one, it makes me laugh)

Does this pregnancy make me look fat? (No the year before baby where I didn't exercise did that, but I like to put the book where non-baby-making people can see it and get confused)

Anything that has a baby on the cover or "mommy in the website name"

Old books I got to buy and keep or borrow and keep for a really long time

If You Were Here-Jennifer Lancaster 

The Picture of Dorian Gray-Oscar Wilde

Written on the body-Jeanette Winterson

The Edible Woman- Margret Atwood (please read this amazing book, this woman is a literary great)

The Irresistible Henry House-Lisa Grunwald (Actually would be good to reread so I know what NOT to do)

ANYTHING I COULD GET MY HANDS ON, I seriously read a novel or two a week, and just because I had to for class (English Major), but because I wanted to. Now I seem to be almost solely intrested in diaper dishing.
