As I head off on vacation tomorrow, I am taking, as always a few books for entertainment. I always get a ton of reading done at the beach, so I am looking forward to digging through these offerings:
First, Fr. James Martin, SJ, has this "spiritual memoir" about various saints that have been instrumental in his life. I am halfway through this - reading a chapter a night as I go to bed. This might be replaced as nighttime reading by the pope's new encyclical, Caritas in Veritate. But once I am through that, Fr. Martin will be back.
My non-theological, brain candy reads are Harry Potter related: Harry, A History and Mugglenet.com's Harry Potter Should Have Died should get me back in the mood to see "The Half-Blood Prince" next week. The other one that I am looking forward to sinking my teeth into (ahem) is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, because what could make a Victorian classic even better? Zombie mayhem!
So, I am off. I'll check in from time to time, but this is family time - vacation. I hope you all are getting some of that too!
