I have been reading and reading and reading… and there are other books in the queue! By time the November book-fest is over, you will know what to ask for for Christmas, and what to give!

Loving Work by Mike Hayes.
A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy by Sarah A. Reinhard.
Saved by Beauty: A Spiritual Journey with Dorothy Day by Michael O’Neill McGrath.
