I am a Jewish convert to Catholicism, blogging on a variety of subjects.
The motto for this blog is:
"Rejoice always, pray constantly,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition.
I've added a new category, Potpourri, to my daily reading plan. Potpourri, in my system, simply means any book containing more than one kind of writing, for example, a mixture of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction.
I'm starting off with "Peppermint: The Best From Scholastic Writing Awards Junior Division," a book
I've loved since I was in junior high school.
My regular readers know that I've been reading "A Christmas Carol," by Charles Dickens every December 24th for many years now.
Well, for the past several years, I have read "Norah and the Cable Car," by Rita Shields, on St. Patrick's Day. This is the perfect choice, because the book covers the year from St. Patrick's Day 1873 to St. Patrick's Day 1874.
Of course, I'm not skipping any of the other books I'm currently reading, and since I started that system, I don't read ANY book in one sitting. One day, sometimes, but not one sitting.
