This is taken from an older post. New material is in blue.
The books can be fiction or non-fiction, but they absolutely MUST be something I'll want to carry into the next week. Dull, dry books are NOT welcome!
This may seem like a restriction, but it is actually an enhancement of the most beautiful, precious day of the week. And, as a bonus, I find that I enjoy the non-Catholic books all the more for having put them aside for a day.
I'd like to make it clear that I do not consider it a sin to read non-Catholic books on Sunday. This is a matter of personal preference.
