How many parenting/discipline books do you own?


I have been considering getting Love and Logic and I realized I have more books than I need, although there are probably mamas out there with more.

I have:
What to Expect When Expecting
WTEWE the First Year
WTEWE the Toddler Years
No Cry Sleep Solution
Sleeping Through the Night
Parenting from the Inside Out-never got around to reading it though
The Power of Positive Parenting
The Discipline Book
Raising Your Spirited Child
Stress-Free Potty Training

Out of those, I only used maybe 4 a lot. No Cry worked wonders for us. I love Raising your Spirited Child, and of course I has much more time to read WTE and the First Year one before I had a toddler on my hands. The rest, not so much help. I like the discipline books, but once I realized DD was spirited, they haven't applied as much as I would like.

I have "Happiest Toddler on the Block" - well, I do SOMEWHERE. I haven't been able to locate it in months

I also have "How to Talk So Your Kids Will Listen and Listen So Your Kids Will Talk" (or something like that) but I've never read it.

I'm not big into parenting books, really. Maybe I should be?

Mine too! I thought about getting the "Love and Logic" book too - but haven't gotten around to it. Saving up my Amazon gift cards

So is the concensus the Love and Logic book is good for difficult children? I really don't want ANOTHER book, but I had bought most before to have as refernce books (I loooooove books in general) and now they don't seem to fit with DD's personality. I debated selling them, but all kids are different and I may need them later right?
