Books: Recent reads

September 10, 2008 | Books

Everything You Never Wanted Your Kids to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid They’d Ask): The Secrets to Surviving Your Child’s Sexual Development from Birth to the Teens by Justin Richardson and Mark Schuster ~ Interesting; good resource.

The Giver by Lois Lowry ~ Kinda creepy.

Entwined Lives by Nancy L. Segal ~ Jam-packed with information. I’ll review this on You’ve Got Your Hands Full soon. Same with the next two books.

Indivisible by Two by Nancy L. Segal ~ A more in-depth look at some of the people Segal interviewed for twin studies.

Identical Strangers by Elyse Schein and Paula Bernstein ~ An incredible story of separation and reunion of identical twin sisters.

What have you been reading lately?

    I am stuck reading literary potato chips except for one book called Bonk – the Science of Sex. IT is pretty interesting. Everything else has involved vampires, werewolves or space travel.

    After years of a high-fat fiction diet, lately I’ve been on a Founding Fathers kick. After watching the excellent miniseries “John Adams,” I read the even better David McCullough book on which it was based. From there I went through Joseph J. Ellis’ “Founding Brothers,” as well as his books on the first three presidents: “His Excellency” (Washington), “Passionate Sage” (Adams) and “American Sphinx” (Jefferson). I’ve just now finished Garry Wills’ (not exactly riveting) study of James Madison.

    Yes, I was the geeky kid who could recite the entire roster of presidents in order, including their years of service. I’m available for birthday parties.

    Oh yeah, and I agree with you on “The Giver,” Becky. Creepy indeed. What exactly makes that one such a biggie in the middle schools these days?
