What book are you currently reading?


There used to be a topic about this, but I guess it got purged.

Anyway, I’m currently reading Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens, my favorite author. Liking it so far.


I must have been reading over 15 books in parallel before vacation, so I gave myself a break and only touch 1 book every other day…


I just started Hitler, the War, an the Popel Only on page 16, but I think is well written so far.


Great thread.

I’m reading Jonah Goldberg - Suicide of the West

And a great book I picked up at a local Parish. Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist by Brant Pitre with a foreword by Scott Hahn.

BTW some parishes have a great selection of Catholic reading material including books, pamphlets, booklets even CDs. I’ve gotten dozens of items from local parishes. It’s free but they ask for a small donation.


I just started reading “And then there were none” by Agatha Christie.


The book by Mr. Pitre is excellent.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend the book I am currently reading so I will wait to post books on this thread.


The Prayer That Jesus Taught, by Fr. Gerry Pierse, CSsR

Seven Lies About Catholic History: Infamous Myths about the Church’s Past and How to Answer Them, by Diane Moczar.

Objetive and tempered with good humor, this book is a must have to all catholics who intend to defend their institution publicly.


Renegades by Marissa Meyer.


Starting to read City of God by St.Augustine.Just finished reading The Lamb’s Supper:The Mass as Heaven on Earth by Dr.Scott Hahn.


Purple Hibiscus by Chimamamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian author. It received excellent reviews from The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Boston Globe. I’m half-way through now, and, so far, I agree with those reviews.


“Interior Prayer” (Carthusian Novice Conferences), by a Carthusian.

I find it very inspiring! I still occasionally watch the DVD of the Carthusians “Into Great Silence”.
