Woo Hoo! I got my books today that I ordered from Amazon on Tuesday (very fast service). I’m participating in the Barren Bitches Book Brigade that Mel at Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters organized, and this month’s book is The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I’m looking forward to getting into reading again, and it’ll be nice to share perspectives on the book with other people.
I also bought another book, The Thinking Woman’s Guide to a Better Birth by Henci Goer. It discusses different aspects of giving birth, including cesareans, induced labor, epidurals and so on, with a bias towards natural birth vice current common hospital practices. The author explains in the introduction that while she is biased, she tries to present the facts so that the readers are well informed to make their own decisions. Since I’m interested in having a natural birth (when I actually get pregnant), this book should provide some very good information. More to come later as I read through it.
