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!
"Least of All, Me"
by Sr. Anthony Marie, OSF
[Catholic fiction, based on fact]
{Sunday books}


Bible books(s) read this week:
"Galatians"
"Isaiah"
(This post explains my Bible-reading plan.)
{Also,  inspired by something I read in 
"The Way of a Pilgrim," I now
read one full Gospel every day, dividing each Gospel into several portions}
I found that this doesn't work for me;
so now I'm going to read one Gospel
a week.


"Red Rose and Tiger Lily or
In a Wider World" #
(sequel to "A World of Girls")
