I wanted to continue to encourage all of you out there to take part in the Catholic Summer Reading Program hosted by Aquinas and More. I went to my local Catholic bookstore to purchase my long-awaited favorite on the list, Those Terrible Middle Ages.
Well, they had sold out, so I ended up buying a book that is on the top 64 finalist list from the reading program--Lay Siege to Heaven, a novel about Saint Catherine of Siena. It looks excellent, and I will update you as I read it.
Another "must-have" book on the list is Grunt Padre, a book about a Marine Corps chaplain during the Vietnam War. DH, who really loves to read about the Vietnam era, would really like this book, I think.
So, check out the Summer Reading Program and get involved!
