Sunday Snippets---A Catholic Carnival

 It's time for Sunday Snippets!  Thanks so much to RAnn for hosting.   I've discovered some wonderful blogs here.  How about sharing yours?

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.

"Between Heaven and Mirth"#
by James Martin, SJ
(Kindle book)
"Once a Jew"
by Rev. Arthur B. Klyber, Redemptorist
"A Right to Be Merry" #
by Mother Mary Francis, P. C. C
"Travelers Along the Way"
by Fr. Benedict Groeschel
[collective biography]
"Outnumbered!  Raising 13 Kids With Humor and Prayer"
by Mary Ann Kuharski
[nonfiction, biography, autobiography]
(this family has children by birth and by adoption)
{Sunday books}

Bible books read this week:
"The Gospel According to John"

"Anne of the Island"
{carried over from last week}
"Anne of Windy Poplars"
{carrying over into next week}
by L. M. Montgomery

"The Autumn Term at St. Gabriel's" #
by Penelope Webbe
[children's fiction]
(the title made me think that this was part of
a series, but it is a stand-alone book.  One of
the teachers is named Miss Sparrow, but she 
is not at all like the nice Miss Sparrow in the
Betsy-Tacy books.)

"Intimate Practices: Literacy and Cultural Work in U. S. Women's
Clubs, 1880-1920"
by Anne Ruggles Gere
{carrying over into next week}
