Books Read In The Past Week


Books read for the first time are marked with a #
Books, (except Sunday books) are grouped by author, and not necessarily in the order read.


"Love God And Do What You Please"
by St. Alphonsus Liguori
adapted by M. J. Huber
[spiritual reading]
a favorite of mine; thank God it wasn't one of the books
lost when I moved!
(I'm stretching this book out over as many Sundays as I can; and
when I finish, I may very well start reading it all over again! :)  )
"Deathbed Conversions #
Finding Faith at the Finish Line"
by Karen Edmisten
[multiple biography]
(Kindle book)
"Tom Playfair
or Making a Start" 
by Fr. Francis J. Finn, S.J.
[children's fiction]
(reading online)
{Sunday books}


Bible books(s) read this week:
"Isaiah"
"The Gospel According to Luke"


"Goodbye My Friends"
{carried over from last week}
"All Because of Raizy"
by Miriam L. Elias
[children's fiction, Jewish]


"The Diamond in the Window"
"The Swing in the Summerhouse"
"The Astonishing Stereoscope"
by Jane Langton
[fiction, fantasy, ages 10 and up]
I like the stories, but unfortunately
the author writes erroneously about
the doctrine of the Real Presence
in "The Astonishing Stereoscope."
What's worst of all is that the character
speaking erroneously is a priest.
I'm planning to address this in a review
on amazon.com, but it could take awhile.
After all, it is understandable that a non-Catholic
could be mistaken about Catholic doctrine.




"Freckle-Face-Frankel"
by Leota Harris Keir
[children's fiction, Jewish (Conservative) themes]


"Brenda, Her School and Her Club" #
by Helen Leah Reed
[YA fiction]
