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.

"Percy Wynn 
or Making a Boy of Him"
by Fr. Francis J. Finn, S.J.
[children's fiction]
(read online)
I love the title of the first chapter:
"In Which Percy Wynn Bows to Thomas
Playfair and the Reader Simultaneously"
"Between Heaven and Mirth"#
by James Martin, SJ
(Kindle book)
{Sunday books}

Bible books(s) read this week:
"The Gospel According to Luke"
"The Gospel According to John"

"The Chalet School Does it Again" #
{carried over from last week}
"A Genius at the Chalet School" #
"The Chalet School Fete" #
(originally published in hardcover as
one book; divided into two in paperback)
"Joey and Co. In Tirol" #
by Eleanor M. Brent-Dyer
"Adrienne and the Chalet School" #
[children's fiction, Chalet School series]
I've finally faced the fact that I'm not going to be able to buy the entire series, so I'm reading the books I already have, and reading the online synopses of those
I don't have.  I'd rather read a synopsis for free than spend money on an abridged

"Happy is the Heart"
by Sarah Birnhack
[children's fiction, Jewish]

"All The Time You Need, The Greatest Gift In The World" #
by Robert R. Updegraff
(another book I wanted to read because I love "Try
Giving Yourself Away," which the author wrote under

the pen-name David Dunn. )
This book also offers good advice, and interesting anecdotes.

"Friday the Rabbi Slept Late"
by Harry Kemelman
[fiction, Jewish (Conservative), Mystery]
( loan)
{carrying over into next week}
