Revised Reading List

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (1)

Having finished Barbara Dent's My Only Friend Is Darkness and John Steinbeck's Cannery Row in the last couple of days, the face of my reading list has changed dramatically.

Present reading:

James McKean Quattocento
(don't laugh) J.D. Robb Purity in Death (Okay, the premise sounded interesting--somewhat similar to Snowcrash for those who are familiar.
C.S. Lewis The Screwtape Letters
Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice (but I'm already behind)

Jennifer Moorcroft He Is My Heaven--a biography of Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity
Abbot Vonier A Key to the Doctrine of the Eucharist --wonderful, rich, insightful. It calls for slow reading.

Hovering on the horizon--

The Letters of St. Teresa of Avila, Vol. 1
Parochial and Plain Sermons, Vol 1
The Science of the Cross St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

And others.

Parochial and Plain Sermons is Newman, right?

Dear T.S.

Sorry--Yes it is. I think of it so often in those terms that I quite forget the attribution. Thank you for providing it.



Why should I laugh at the J. D. Robb selection? I've read the entire series, including short stories that have appeared in anthologies. I do have to warn you that Purity occurs rather late in the In Death series, so you might have trouble with some of the insider knowledge from earlier books in the series.
