Tell us what books you've read. Which did you like most, and why? Which didn't you like? Which books do you want to read?

I've read:

The Billings Method: Controlling Fertility Without Drugs or Devices by Dr. Lyn Billings and Ann Westmore Love it!
The Art of Natural Family Planning by John and Sheila Kippley Yeah. That one was a little overwhelming in several areas. CCL has a new shorter and simpler version out - I can't wait to read it!
Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler Awesome, awesome book for learning the basics! But I was dismayed over TW's perception of the Billings Method. She comments on it in a few places, quite inaccurately. I don't think she really understood the BOM very well when she wrote TCOYF.
A Consumer's Guide to the Pill and Other Drugs by John B. Wilkes, B. Pharm Very informative.
Fertility, Cycles, and Nutrition by Marilynn Shannon I refer back to this frequently!
Open Embrace: A Protestant Couple Rethinks Contraception by Sam and Bethany Torode Very interesting.
Good News about Sex and Marriage by Christopher West. Loved it! Doesn't cover "how" to use NFP, but the "whys" from a Catholic perspective.
Breast Cancer: Its Link to Abortion and the Birth Control Pill by Dr. Chris Kahlenborn, M.D. Also very interesting.

Books I want to read:
In Their Own Words: Women Healed edited by Jean Blair Packard
The Medical Surgical Practice of NaPro Technology
The Art of Natural Family Planning, the new one!
