[i]True Devotion to Mary[/i] by Louis DeMontfort

And I want to get a chance to read [i]Confessions of St. Augustine[/i] by the man himself. I love the books the Saints write.

[i]The Lamb's Supper[/i] Scott Hahn
[i]Catholicism and Fundamentalsim[/i] Karl Keating

For pleasure, I'm reading [i]Let Freedom Ring[/i] by Sean Hannity and [i]Pierced by a Sword[/i]. I can't remeber the author of the latter at the moment, but I highly recomend this book. It's fiction with a Catholic twist (but it incorporates Catholicism into the book in a manner that shows its truth. It doesn't convolute it at all).

I'm reading both of those right now, the [i]Imitation[/i] for the second time and [i]True Devotion to Mary[/i] for the first. A friend recommended [i]True Devotion[/i] to me since I'm still a fairly new Catholic and I want to learn more about our Blessed Mother. :D:

It's one of my favorites. I only just found out about it recently though.

The Wasteland and othe writings by T.S. Elliot
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol 1. by Alan Moore

Right now I'm reading [i]The Fifth Sun: Aztec Gods, Aztec World[/i] by Burr Cartwright Brundage. I love Aztec mythology and history, and this is an excellent study.

Also, Bernard Lonergan's [i]A Second Collection[/i] (W.F. Ryan, S.J. & Bernard J. Tyrrell, S.J., eds.). Basically, a collection of papers and lectures, along with an interview, by the late, great Canadian Jesuit philosopher and theologian. Lonergan is not an easy read (to put it mildly), but this volume is a reasonably accessible introduction to his thought.

Theologian in Training
Most of my books are in boxes, but I have retained a few of them since I go on retreat this weekend. Since I always take it with me when I am on retreat, and still have not finished it, I am reading on/off "The Soul of the Apostolate." However, seeing as the academic year is winding down (or done for me) and I really have no desire to do anything academic I have been reading and actually am always reading poetry, mostly contemporary. Some of the poets I have been reading:

Franz Wright
Czeslaw Milosz
Colette Inez
and always occasional ones by:
Li-Young Lee
Anne Sexton
John Donne
