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 "[i]The Soul of the Apostolate[/i]." However, seeing as the academic year is winding down (or done for me) and I really have no desire to do anything academic ...
[/quote]
Ahhh! I love [i]The Soul of the Apostolate[/i] I've been reading it on and off for the last few months, and I'm really enjoying it!! :topsy:

I've just finished a bunch of books by [i]Michael O'Brien[/i] which I thought were fantastic, and really thought provoking...

I'm also reding St Teresa of Avila's [i]Way of Perfection[/i] which is also really good!

Im reading Cantana of Love: A Verse By Verse Reading Of The Song Of Songs by Blaise Arminjon S.J.

Its analysis is less about married love and more about Gods relationship with Israel. I like it a lot.

decent...when my school had us fill out a sheet for insurance I had to stop at roughly 390 books. I am a book junkie and I have a lil bit of coin. My fiancee half-heartedly put a 80-120 cap on my monthly book binges. Also, for holidays and birthdays a barns and noble card is the most common gift.

Im impressed with your selection :flex:
