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.
"Blueberry Muffins"
by Colleen Spiro
[nonfiction, anecdotes, autobiographical]
(Kindle book)
"Bobby in Movieland"
"Claude Lightfoot or How The Problem Was Solved"by Fr. Francis J. Finn, S.J.
[children's fiction, Catholic]

"The Rosary
Keeping Company with Jesus and Mary"

A Book for Weekdays AND Sundays
"A 40-Day Spiritual Workout For Catholics"
by Bob Rice
(chapters 17-23)
one chapter a day

"A Grand Man"
by Catherine Cookson
[fiction]
(Kindle book)
{carried over from last week}
It's been years since I've read the "Mary Ann"
books, and I was delighted to find them on Kindle.
Some of the books are available for free on openlibrary.org.

"The Funny Guy"
by Grace Allen Hogarth

[children's fiction]
In Joan M. Lexau's "The Trouble With Terry,"
Terry reads a book that is both happy and sad
about a girl named Helen who "always doing things
wrong, just like Terry."
I wonder if that book was "The Funny Guy."
It definitely fits the description!

"The Middle Button"
by Kathryn Worth
[YA fiction, historical, based on her maternal ancestors]

"A Live Coal in The Sea" #
by Madeleine L'Engle
[fiction]
(openlibrary.org loan)
I'd been meaning to read this book
for a long time.

"The Book of Festivals and Holidays
the World Over"
by Maguerite Ickis
[children's non-fiction]
