Jami i added some books to get this started, but i haven't read anything yet, so i'll unvote when (if?) some real votes start to come in.

Hayam Al-Rashed There are three books for Heidi Murkoff on this list and they all refer to the same book but different edition:)

Jen Sometimes you just need to read something not too intense, and Babyhood was a great reprieve from all the cerebral stuff.
My husband would actually read this aloud to me - well, my belly really - once the baby was old enough to hear sounds outside the womb. It was so funny; we both had a great time, and I always felt that the laughs were good for the baby too!

I added a bunch... most of them focus on culture and biology rather than specific parenting "style". Some of them deal with children- and infant-care in history. :-)
