July Reads

6 Aug

Great Reads this month.


Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye by Dr. Ellie Phillips: This has to be one of the most intriguing books I have read in a long time.  I doubt many of you get excited about reading a book about improving your oral health like I do.  Brandon definitely laughed but it is great!  Honest.  It really has nothing to do with getting rid of your dentist as the title suggests.  Instead Dr. Phillips encourages the reader to take charge of their own dental health.  I also really appreciated her discussion of fluoride, bleaching, and sealants.  Overall the book was definitely intriguing and one I would highly recommend.  I’m hoping to try her oral care system soon. 

  The Tightwad Gazette II by Amy Dacyzyn: If you haven’t read this book run to the nearest library and check it out!  If for some strange reason your library doesn’t have it pick it up at the nearest half priced book store.  It is excellent.  I have learned so much from scanning these pages!  There are actually 3 volumes to this series.  I try to read them at least a couple of times a year. 

Honey For a Child’s heart: by Gladys Hunt.  I love the practicality of this book.  Not only does Hunt motivate you to read to your child but she provides suggested reading lists for different ages of great books.  Instead of just blindly reading and purchasing any book she encourages you to look for that which is best.  We have been reading through some of her book lists and have found them to be excellent!  A great place to start when looking for good books for little ones.   

The Job Search Solution: by Besheara.  I’m just barely started on this one but it looks pretty good.  I’ll keep you updated. 

Homemade by Reader’s Digest: Usually I don’t find these types of save money recipe books to be all that helpful but this one is by far the exception!  This book includes all sorts of things: food, beauty remedies, cleaning products and so much more.  One I would definitely like to add to my library one day. 

Doodle Stitching: by Aimee Ray.  This book is all about embroidery-something I use to do quite often as a young girl.  Hoping to carve out some time soon to try my hand at embroidering a onesie soon.  The book includes a cd with all 400 of the designs on it.  There is also a nice section which explains the basic embroidery stitches in more detail. 

Anyone have any good recommendations for August reads?
