Baby news and book list

I am already dilated 2 cm, which means baby could come at any minute now, so therefore I am "publishing" my 2007 Top Eleven Book list already in early December. Here you go:

For the first time ever, I am sorting it by authors, since the "winners" are mostly by the same authors.

However, my clear # 1 this year is:

Water for Elephants – Sara Gruen

Number 2-10:

Wideacre – Philippa Gregory
The Favored Child – Philippa Gregory

The Brooklyn Follies – Paul Auster
Oracle Night – Paul Auster
Music of Change – Paul Auster
In the country of last things – Paul Auster

Eat – Pray – Love – Elizabeth Gilbert

My Sister’s Keeper – Jodi Picoult
The tenth circle – Jodi Picoult
The Pact - Jodi Picoult

As always, send me your list! :)

Baby news

Hi all:

So here is the latest news on Fraeulein Baby:
The placenta, which covered the "exit" for the last 4 months has finally moved. So as of now, I don't have to have a c-section, which is VERY exciting for all of us (including the placenta). Right now, we have scheduled the inducement for December 16th. But there is a chance that the baby might come early, since she is already 7.5 pounds (which is HUGE) and she might be 9 or 10 pounds when she is born. Half the size of Jonah's current weight! :)
My last day at work will be Friday, 14th of December.
No names yet, we have a top 5 list and will decide on a name once she is here.
Best, Kirsten, Andy, Jonah, and Mr. Fluffy
