Do any of you read books on Marriage & Parenting - books with practical stuff for your parenting/life; and does it bug you that you can't read them quickly enough for the message of the book/practical applicable advice to be most effective (or in your memory for long lol)? Or do you read just for relaxation - novels etc? 

I adore 'self help' books on parenting /marriage, always looking for tips on how people squeeze in the time to read and apply :)

I have to say I'm a little surprised so many read parenting books. Are they including homeschool books? Hmmmm

That sounds like an awesome class!

Quoting KickButtMama:

It's awesome, just cuts out some of the back story. So I'm glad I was so familiar with the 'adult' books. I'm using both to teach a class for middle/high school homeschoolers at co-op this semester based on those books.

Quoting bluerooffarm:

I'm thinking of getting that when we hit US history in 2 years!

Quoting KickButtMama:

I've read it a few times too. I recently got the digital version of his Young Peoples History of the United States as it is updated through the war on terror. It's great (it's the double copy, not the one broken up into 2 volumes, obviously) 

Quoting bluerooffarm:

Me too, I pull him out every few years and renew myself.

Quoting KickButtMama:

I love Zinn!

Quoting bluerooffarm:

I don't read parenting books.  Sometimes I read homeschooling books, but mostly I read novels, science books, and history books.  I am currently re-reading Howard Zinns' A People's History of the US and I want Lies my Teacher Told Me.
