A few days ago I discovered my new favorite web site: Paperbackswap.com. If you read at all you should sign up and then add me as your buddy. Here’s how it works:

  • Pick out all the books you don’t want anymore (they don’t have to be paperbacks)
  • Post them on the site
  • People request your books, you print out a label, wrap the books and mail them to the requestors
  • You get a credit for each book you send out, and with them you can request books for yourself!

So basically you are getting books for the cost of media mail shipping ($2-3/book, depending on the book size). Plus, you get packages in the mail! How fun is that? They also have audio books available. You know you want to do it!

Good books

I spend a lot of time online, but I still read a lot of books. Here are a few I’ve read recently and liked.

Baby 411 — by Dr. Ari Brown and Denise Fields. You knew there had to be a baby book in here, right? Dr. Brown is going to be our pediatrician so I figured I’d read her book. I mean, it was easy enough to get pregnant, but as someone who didn’t change a diaper until college, I am going to need a little help figuring out what to do once the little bugger gets here. This book has common sense stuff I wouldn’t think of. Like, you should give your kid Pedialyte if they are nauseated and subsequently dehydrated. But avoid the flavored, colored versions. Why? Because you don’t want a kid who is puking every half hour drinking a purple beverage. It’s THAT kind of info that’s really useful.

Thunderstruck —  by Erik Larson. This is a really cool book. Larson likes to take true stories and write them as if you were reading a novel. This one combines the events leading up to the creation of the wireless radio and a sensational murder story that was headline news at the turn of the century.

Dixieland Delight: A Football Season on the Road in the Southeastern Conference — by Clay Travis. This isn’t something I’d normally pick up, but Mason read it and since I like SEC football as much as the next girl, I gave it a shot. Travis (a sports columnist) went to a game at every SEC stadium during a recent season and documented his travels. Much of the book is hilarious.

I can haz beer?

Mason is smoking a chicken for dinner tonight (isn’t spring break great?) and took this pic of Atticus checking out his beer. It’s our own personal LOLcat.
