So much to write about; Brief update, Saturday, Oct 1

I have so much to write about, I hardly know where to begin. Been reading so many books, observing so many things. I’ll wait until I can sit down with the laptop to write full posts; blogging by phone is fine for a brief check-in like this. But I will list below some of the things I’ve read and/or am reading. Links and a few words about them later.

  • The Battle for Middle-earth: Tolkien’s Divine Design in the Lord of the Rings, Rev. Fleming Rutledge.
  • The Hidden Manna, Rev. James T. O’Connor.
  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), Robert Spencer.
  • The Economics of Freedom, Frederic Bastiat.
  • How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam is Dying Too), David P. Goldman.
  • Dean Spanley, Lord Dunsany.
  • Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body, Karol Wojtyla/Pope John Paul II.

Reading these and other books not listed above, along with life as usual and working on the novel(s) and other projects (including learning to play the kalimba a friend gave me), has kept me occupied and away from the blog. I’ll write more about all of this soon.

Peace be with you.

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

    These book titles look so good! I look forward to your commentary on the Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam, as well as How Civilizations Die. Now I need to add some more books to my ever-growing wish list!

    Howdy, Mei :)

    Very good books and I’ve already added more to the list myself, the wish list and the reading list too, along with the books that some friends helped me find when we scoured the shelves in our favorite secondhand bookshop a few weeks back. Research for the novel. So much to read and write, so little ability to manage my time effectively. Oy. At least I was able to pass the titles along. I’ll try to write more about them at some point.

    Thank you for reading and commenting, Mei. :) Peace be with you.
