Calico Bush by Rachel Field

A pre-read for Simon; this is a lovely book. Usually I write discussion questions, but this book doesn't really lend itself to that--it is more experiential. (Kinda reminded me of Little House in that way.)

Attaching in Adoption : Practical Tools for Today's Parents by Deborah D. Gray

I think I liked this; won't really know until I have a chance to field test the ideas.

Open House by Elizabeth Berg

Aw, this was unusually good fluff; every inch of it an Oprah book.

The End of Overeating : Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite by David A. Kessler

I had the same reaction to this book that I had to Supersize Me: all of this talk about food is making me hungry!

More seriously, I had been hearing about this book for months and it was a huge disappointment. Kessler seems shocked--simply shocked!--that companies deliberately put lots of salt, fat, and sugar into food in order to encourage people to overeat.

Well. Imagine that.

Stuart Little by E. B. White

I read this to Truman. Such a sweet story.
