We decided that we need a beautiful and comprehensive book on saints for our home. Any suggestions?

Lives of the Saints is always good :D

The Golden Legend by Jacobus de Voragine is a classic.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Legend

Here are my suggestions:
The Diary of St. Faustina Kowalska - Divine Mercy in my Soul

The Autobiography of St. Anthony Mary Claret

The Life of St. Dominic Savio by St. Don Bosco

Oh, and the Imitation of Christ - by Thomas a Kempis is always good for every home. St. Therese of Lisieux's family had a habit of reading it.

May the merciful Jesus bless you

They are in pdf format and you can read them using adobe acrobat reader

Oh and, if nothing else, Our Lady of Fatima - In Lucia's Own Words is also great!

It is a book with photos, available online and for free
