Book Meme

How many books do you own?
Well, I don't know. I would say at least 50-100 books. Many of them are theological, historical, or simply fiction. I work at a library too, so I can read many books without owning them.

Book(s) I am reading now:
I usually don't like to read more than one book at a time. Also, I have not had a lot of time to read books. I just finished reading a 1,000 page textbook for history. Right now I reading "Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To" by Anthony DeStefano. I have finished about half of that book so far.

Last book(s) I read:
The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich
Transfiguration by Fr. John Dear

Five Books That Mean a Lot to Me:
The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich
Holy Bible (Douay-Rheims)
To Kill A Mockingbird (Harper Lee)
1962 Roman Catholic Daily Missal
1941 Short Breviary by St. John's Abbey

While not part of the original Meme, here is a list of some books that I want to read this summer:
Story of a Soul by St. Therese of Lisieux
Maurice and Therese by Patrick Ahern
Reasons to Believe by Scott Hahn
The Rise of Pope Benedict XVI by John Allen, Jr.
All the Pope's Men by John Allen, Jr.
Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons by Raymond Arroyo

The Dolorous Passion is a wonderful book for Lent! I broke up the sections for the different days of Lent.

It is a great book, Deo Juvante. I read it during Lent too, and I read most of it on Good Friday.
