Here are my twitter(ish)-length thoughts on the books I’ve read in the past month:

A Midwife’s Story by Penny Armstrong:: Good story, quick read. But I would recommend Baby Catcher if you are looking for more midwife birth stories. (3 stars) (Just started Call The Midwife… full baby mode over here for sure!)

The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens:: Not my favorite Dickens book, long for the story involved. He wrote & published 2 ch. each week for a year, wish I would have read it with that in mind. (3 stars)

The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle by Arthur Conan Doyle:: I’ve enjoyed every Sherlock Holms story I’ve read (listened to, in this case) Very short little Christmas story. (4 stars)

Secrets of the Baby Whisperer by Tracy Hogg, Melinda Blau:: Reread this FAV baby book of mine. Love the “English” language from a long time baby nanny & her solid advice for understanding what my baby’s telling me. (Worked like a charm for my first 2 babies!!) (5 stars)

Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child, by Marc Weissbluth:: Another reread. Another favorite! Love how it’s divided into sections by stages. Again, whenever my first 2 tried to switch up sleep schedules on me, I found answers here. (5 stars)

    I was firmly in the no-crying-it-out camp….until my 4th child’s sleep habits started turning me into a zombie! I read Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child at *just* the right time :)

    I don’t think I’ve ever read an Arthur Conan Doyle book. I think I should add him to my need-to-read list!

    The Baby Whisperer introduced me to “single side feeding” which worked beautifully for all five of my babies. Great list!
