I used to have a huge list of books on parenting/birth that I wanted to read, and they got lost when I switched computers. Could anyone recommend any books on natural parenting, UC, Breastfeeding, attachment parenting, single parenting, natural birth and parenting gender neutrally? Thanks!

Last Child in the Woods
The Unhealthy Truth
The Lolita Effect

The Purity Myth
Reading Magic
