Or, probably more appropriately titled, Until-I-Finish-All-of-These-Books Reading List. So, see you in two years :) Know what's even more fun to me than making a reading list? Organizing it!

SNACKING ON: Did you hear that the US recently reversed its guidelines to wait years before introducing peanuts to children, and now recommends introducing them as early as 4-6 months?
