Thanks for reading more of them and reviewing! I feel like I have a bookshelf of books (and old Loving More issues) but I know I could use another one or two tailored to my specific situation, and I'd enjoyed the reviews you'd written earlier.

I remember reading the beginning of "Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships" and being a bit put off by the sex focused "raunchy" atmosphere created in the first few pages (I want more people to be poly, but I don't want them to be scared off if they are vanilla-ish, so would I freak people out by recommending it with all the great advice and checklists it has if they can't get past the first chapter?!?!?!?)

Look forward to reading the new reviews tomorrow!
Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.
