The last Read-a-Thon the SciFiCatholic posted about on his blog was in 2010. He entered a seminary a year or two ago, and I don't think he's had much time to update his blog frequently since then.
2010 Lenten Read-a-Thon
I'm late this year getting out the notice for the Lenten Fiction Fast and Read-a-Thon, largely because I was debating within myself whether this year we would even have such a thing.
Well, we're having it. But now the notice is so late that those of you joining us will have to scramble to get a book by Ash Wednesday, which is next week. Mea culpa.
In case you're just joining us, we do this thing around here where every year we give up fiction for Lent, including novels, comic books, movies, and television shows. We also dedicate ourselves to reading through some nonfictional work, preferably a formidable one we've been putting off. Now that I'm in seminary studying philosophy, I'm reading plenty of nonfiction and not very much fiction, but we're still doing the Fiction Fast, and we're still doing the Lenten Read-a-Thon, though I have selected for this year a book much shorter and lighter than what we've read in years past, mostly because of my limited time for extracurricular reading:
As for me, there's a spiritual book I've been meaning to read for a long time but never managed to proceed beyond the first two chapters:
The interior life simplified and reduced to its fundamental principle (1912)
Author: Pollien, François de Sales, 1853-1936; Tissot, Joseph, 1840-1894
The above link is to the Internet Archive from where the book can be freely downloaded.
This is what I choose for my Read-A-Thon this Lent. I've even got the entire book printed out and spiral-bound.
