It’s that time of year where many of us look out the window, see snow and wildlife footprints (even the city has its “wild” life).  Some of us can stir the embers and place another split log on.  Others have the banging and clinking of radiator pipes to give us familiarity.  Still others watch the heating bill and wrap up in a blanket and a hot cup of tea.

What we all have is a winter project such as a book we’ve been meaning to read, are reading or wish for one.  The AAMI Reading Rooms on Yahoo are once again ready for a new year of books and their suggestions are wonderful.  The Childbirth Reading Room features “A Wise Birth: Bringing Together the Best of Natural Childbirth and Modern Medicine” by Penny Armstrong and Sheryl Feldman and is open to everyone!  The Unassisted Childbirth Reading Room features “Magical Beginnings: A Holistic Guide to Pregnancy by Deepak Chopra, also invites everyone!  The Midwifery Reading Room, intended for midwives and birth professionals, features Giving Birth: A Journey Into the World of Midwives and Mothers.

One book we’ve heard much about and some of our group members have LOVED is Lady’s Hands, Lion’s Heart, A Midwife’s Saga by Carol Leonard available from Bad Beaver Farm.  Let us know if you’ve read it!

I have chai, a crochet hook and a huge bowl of yarns next to my pile of books to read.  There are only so many hours in a day!
