What are you reading?

I just updated the tab above: “What I’m reading” and it occurred to me once again how much what we read affects us and how we must choose carefully in this area.  If you’re like me, you only have a limited time to read–never as much as I would like, I confess.  As well as a selection of inspiring spiritual books that move me to prayer, I am also usually reading someone’s (auto)biography because I find I am so impacted by the lives of others (including my close friends). I need those “witnesses to hope.” What are you reading?  What’s your favorite all-time book?

  1. My all-time favorite book is actually three- The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I’ve read it many times–at least eight: Once while nursing each child, and then I read them aloud to two of my sons. I can pick up a volume at any time and be inspired at almost any point.

    I have on reserve at the library the book about Pope John Paul II–I think it is Life with Karol–by his secretary whose name I shall not now attempt to spell. I will let you know how it goes.

    I am reading M. Theresa’s Secret Fire in my prayer times, and I am astounded by it–it has given me much hope.

    finally, I am very interested in what you think about The Loser Letters. I like Mary Eberstadt.

    1. Thanks, Pat, for sharing what you’re reading. And I’m delighted that you are liking Mother Teresa’s Secret Fire. It’s high on my recommended reading list. So far I’m really enjoying The Loser Letters. And three cheers for The Lord of the Rings!!
