Semper Gaudete!: Books Read in the Past Week

Books Read in the Past Week



Books read for the first time are marked with a #

"In A Great Tradition
Tribute to Dame Laurentia McLachlan,
Abbess of Stanbrook" #
by The Benedictines of Stanbrook
(I am very glad to have this book.  Rumer Godden
wrote in In This House of Brede: "All of the characters
in this book are imaginary, but many of the episodes
are based on fact; some are taken from the life and
sayings of Dame Laurentia McLachlan and Sister Mary
Ann McArdle of Stanbrook Abbey."
"In This House of Brede,"
by Rumer Godden
[fiction]
{Sunday Books}


"The Imitation of Mary In Four Books" #
by Alexander De Rouville
Revised and Edited by Matthew J. O'Connell
[devotional reading, Catholic]
(one chapter a day; more on Sunday
 



"The Mother-Daughter Book Club" #
{carried over from last week}
"Much Ado About Anne" #
by Heather Vogel Frederick
[children's fiction]
(that Mrs. Chadwick makes me think of a fat,
modern-day Harriet Oleson from the "Little House
on the Prairie" tv show.)



"Marya of Clark Avenue"
by Marie Halun Bloch
[children's fiction, based on the author's childhood]
(this is one of my VERY  favorite books,
one of my SPECIAL books.)



"Portrait of Lies"
by Dandi Daley Mackall
"Tangled Web"
by Kristi Holl
[children's fiction, Christian, (Protestant, denomination
 or denominations not specified ) 
( todays.girls.com series, created by Terry K. Brown) ]
(openlibrary.org loans) 
Some, but not all, of the books in this series
were lost when I moved, so thank God for
free online books!

"Lily The Rebel"
"Lights, Action, Lily!"
by Nancy Rue
[children's fiction, Christian, (Protestant; no denomination
specified) ]


"How To Be A Clubwoman" #
by Helen Cowles Le Cron
and Edith Wasson McElroy
[nonfiction]
(This title made me laugh.  The way I see it,  any woman who
belongs to at least one club IS a clubwoman.  Perhaps a
better title would have been, "The Clubwoman and Her
Club(s)"


"Donna Parker at Cherrydale"
"Donna Parker, Special Agent"
by Marcia Martin
[children's/young teen fiction]
(I loved these books when  I was
in my early teens.  Not great literature,
but still enjoyable.)

"Our Miss Boo" #
(In "Time For Miss Boo",
two books in one volume)
by Margaret Lee Runbeck
{carrying over into next week}
(openlibrary.org loan)
Thyra Ferre Bjorn mentions Margaret Lee Runbeck on
page 139 of "Mama's Way," which is why I wanted to
read her books.

This looks like a long list, but some of the books on it are "quick reads."
