*Did not finish

I started and got more than half-way through The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers, renewing it from the library once. I just could not get through this book! I want to get through 24 books in one year, but with the limited time for reading I have, I've decided if I'm not enjoying the book after giving it a fair chance, I'm not going to waste time reading it. I feel like The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers was written for mothers of older children, like 8-13ish, but she was unsuccessfully trying to make it relateable to everyone. In my opinion. She had good points, but this book just wasn't for me.
I returned The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers to the library today and got I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts On Being a Woman. I read the first chapter while waiting to see my chiropractor and was cracking up in the waiting room. I think I'm going to like this book!
