"Spiritual Midwifery" - who said the hippie speak was hilarious. Oh, totally. But I'm really, really enjoying it.
"Homebirth in the Hospital" - Excellent! Actually an old resident of "The Farm" who became a doctor and applied the midwifery model in a hospital setting. It's short and a super easy read.
I've got a couple novels from my last library trip that I haven't started yet, but they look interesting...
You want to know what will really make you roll, I told my DH about the "hippie speak" while I was reading it and read him an example and then he referred to my yoni as my puss.

We can also just make a discussion thread here for people who cannot come to the chat and for further discussion!
I definitely say thread, even if I am able to chat I'd probably have to come and go and come and go with family distractions.

finally got to reading it last night, I really like it so far and wish I didn't have to work this morning for I could squeeze in a chapter or two before my kids wake up.

I'm in! I actually have Beauty on my bookshelf at home. It was one of my favorite books as a teen.

I'm not sure when I'll find time to read as right now I seem to be doing nothing but sleeping. DH was just mentioning the lack of clean laundry (something I usually take care of)...

Is it too much to schedule the discussion and pick the July book? I've had to renew Beauty once which isn't to say I can't check it back out and back in again but I'd love to get going.

I was really trying to find a decent book today at the library to suggest for August but it seems that all of the books in the new book section are grim, what's up with that? Also, my children weren't exactly being calm and quiet so I was distracted and rushed.

What suggestions for August?

Mind if I start a discussion thread for Beauty?

I'll join. Looking forward to this So, read Beauty by the end of July, right?

I love homemade: cute skirts, apricot jam, and family!

yeah, I guess people need some more time. I didn't mean to be impatient, and I'd love for a chance to get more people to join! I'll just return it and check it back out in a few weeks.
Anyone with more patience want to be in charge of starting the chat thread?

I am up for the thread whenever, but just to let you know I will be out of the country without internet access for 2 weeks starting on tuesday. I planned to read while there and we get back July 25th. So I will hop into the discussion then!

I considered starting this one the other day. I thought it might freak me out too much right now (not that I advocate remaining blissfully ignorant). Do you find it empowering for your choices in addition to being frightening/angering?

Read Beauty today during naptime. Good stuff. Did we ever decide who starting and when we're doing the discussion?

I also have the latest Lee Child book 61 Hours checked out, I'll probably start that tonight. LOVE the Reacher series...anyone else?

I'm taking a break from birth and pregnancy books for awhile. It's driving me nuts that I'm still keeping this pregnancy a secret and anxiously awaiting Monday's u/s. So all this light reading is keeping my mind off of things.

I'm totally here and waiting.... I jumped the gun last time and perhaps was a bit too exuberant.
