My recommendation from the books I've read this month is Laura Bennett's Didn't I Feed You Yesterday? This book had caught my attention at the library because the title is something I've frequently been overheard telling my children. When I realized the book was written by Laura Bennett, my favorite Project Runway contestant of all time, I immediately started reading the book. (Did you know that librarians will frown at you for reading in the check-out line? You would think that the library would be one place that would be encouraged. Go figure.) The book is a very light-hearted, honest account of motherhood in the tradition of Erma Bombeck (my childhood idol and my lifelong role model). It's readily apparent to me that I am Laura's long-lost sister. (Okay, so I'm the sister who isn't nearly as cool or thin, but we're still sisters.) For a look at motherhood done right, or at least done with pizazz, read this book!

I don't normally give a Least Favorite, but I can't help mentioning that the entire time I was listening to Twenties Girl I was questioning my judgement. Even though I limit audiobooks to my time in the car, I can't help but feel that I wasted my time and killed off way too many brain cells. (And yet I never just erased the book...)
