This post is part of my New Year's resolution to read 52 new to me books in 2018. I did slip back into re-reading, the point of this project is to avoid that, but whatever. The books I've read before haven't been added to the numbering.

24. How To Talk So Kids Can Learn by Adele Faber, Elaine Mazlish, Lisa Nyberg and Rosalyn Anstine Templeton - loved this book like I love all the parenting books by Faber and Mazlish.

25. Siblings Without Rivalry: How to Help Your Children Live Together So You Can Live Too by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish - ditto, I really recommend these even if you don't have kids.

26. Luovuus lähtee käsistä by Krista Launonen - this was OK, but I had to make myself finish it, and I prefer books I can't wait to pick up.

27. Older and Happier!: Inspiring, Amusing, And Useful Advice for Men of Certain Age by Dag Sebastian Ahlander - I'm not a man "of certain age" so maybe that's why i only found two of the 109 bits of advice he offers useful.

28. Maman Finlandaise. Poskisuukkoja ja perhe-elämää Etelä-Ranskassa by helena Liikanen-Renger - a Finnish lady writing about her life in southern France. I loved this book, the writer has a really nice way of writing about her observations. I seem to like these expat books. 

- Tyylikkään köyhäilyn taito by Alexander von Schönburg - The title translates to something like "how to be poor with style". I've read this years ago and saw it in the library and decided to pick it up. I wish it had a bit more concrete tips, but an interesting read non the less.

- Kaikki mitä olet aina halunnut tietää kuninkaallisista mutta et ole uskaltanut kysyä by Alexander von Schönburg - I picked this up because it was from the same writer and was several pages in before I realized I'd read this one before, too. I finished it anyway.

29. Äiti, älä tottele! (kaiken maailman kasvatusoppaita) by Janna Rantala - I haven't read many parenting books, but this I liked.

- Why We get fat: And What to Do About It by Gary Taubes - a re-read, so good.

30. Japanese memoirs by Ethel Howard - this book was written a hundred years ago, so it's available for free in the internet. A very interesting read. I'm fascinated by this time period ( the same as in the Anne of Green Gables books).

 The other books I've read so far can be found under the label 52 books in 2018.
