New Reading System

I've decided to cut down on the number of books I'm reading
at one time. I really was juggling too many!
My new system, not counting long-term devotional reading material, is:
One book on Catholic spirituality
AND
One work of fiction
OR
non-fiction
OR
drama.
(In other words, no more than two books at a time, not counting the Bible, short story collections, and poetry collections.)
I've set aside Henry David Thoreau's "Walden" for now; but I do plan to read it sometime
during the winter, when I'm feeling walled in!

How Appropriate!

Today, Veterans' Day, is the feast of St. Martin of Tours.
St. Martin is the Patron Saint of the Military!
How appropriate!
