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.


Sunday book(s)

"In A Great Tradition
Tribute to Dame Laurentia McLachlan,
Abbess of Stanbrook"
by The Benedictines of Stanbrook
( 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.")

I recognized some of the incidents.

Combining Two Things I Love

It has been very well established on this blog that I love
clubs.  I believe I've also mentioned that I love old-time
radio shows.  Well, I've just joined

I know that it says Mystery Theater, but there are many genres.
I expect to have hours and hours of listening pleasure.
