Just found Molly Reads, a book blog authored by a childbirth educator.

Curly Girl, by Lorraine Massey and Deborah Chiel.

Hey, my hair has waves in it. Who knew?

Don't Bet against Me!: Beating the Odds Against Breast Cancer and in Life, by Deanna Favre.

This book written by wife of Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre is a must-read for any Packer fan; but it's an interesting read even if you are not. Deanna talks a lot about her life before her diagnosis, and includes some helpful information about preventing and surviving breast cancer, even a glossary of breast cancer terms and a scripture guide.

Yesterday was The Book Blawg's second anniversary. Two years old, and growing up.

Introductory post.
First Birthday.

Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food, by Jessica Seinfeld.

There has been a lot of controversy about this book, written by wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld; and a similarly-themed book, The Sneaky Chef. I didn't actually try any of these recipes, but you can read all the comments on if you want a comparison of how the meals stack up. However, I must say that I love the styling of this book. It has a 1950s-retro feel to it, strongly reminiscent of my favorite Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys and Girls. Looks nice, but I'm not rushing out to puree cauliflower anytime soon.

The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World, by A.J. Jacobs.

Not as good as The Year of Living Biblically,but interesting nonetheless. Mr. Jacobs takes a whole year to read The Encyclopaedia Britannica from "a-ak" to "zywiec". He got the idea from his father, who tried once to read the encyclopedia but only got mid-way through the "B"s. By the way, Jacobs senior is a securities lawyer who, the author claims, holds the world's record for most footnotes in a legal article - 4,824.
