I have been neglecting my blogging. I don’t have a good excuse and can’t be bothered trying to write some confection. Let’s just say a lot of Stuff has happened recently and it wasn’t so pretty. But now everything is fine, I’m back doing all the things I do and I want to write about it.
The catalyst for my writing today is a meme I saw mentioned on Facebook. Hosted by Book Journey, ‘It’s Monday! What are you Reading?’ offers book bloggers a space to talk about what they read last week and what they plan to read in the coming days. Which is really what I’ve been trying to do for a while although I couldn’t find a format I liked. Well, I like this one. So here goes.
I’ve read a lot over the past few weeks (What, you think I sat at home and did nothing?) and it’s going to take a little while for me to get all the reviews written and typed up. But here’s what I’ve got so far:
- Michael Shaughnessy – A Concise Catholic Catechism – 2010/027
- Helena Scott & Ethel Tolansky – Josemaria Escriva – 2010/028
- John Powell – The Christian Vision – 2010/DNF
Somehow those three seemed much more impressive when I wrote them in my journal this morning. One of these days I’ll get caught up.
I picked out my next seven reads earlier today so here’s what I’m planning:
- Janice Galloway – This is not About Me
- LaVonne Neff – The Mother Teresa Reader
- John O’Farrell – An Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain
- Evelyn Underhill – The School of Charity
- Margaret Mitchell – Gone with the Wind
- Val Conlon – Handbook of Devotion to Our Lady
- Tamera Alexander – Rekindled
As ever, it’s unlikely I’ll get through all of these (although I can always hope!)
What are you reading this week?
