Summer Reading

I am a huge fan of reading.. Im not really sure when this happened because I remember when I much much younger, I used to tease my mom all the time about how much she read and couldn't understand it because I thought it "boring".. I guess things change with age.. Anywho... Are you doing any summer reading this year? Do you read all year round like I do?.. Do you use an E-Reader? No offense to those who use those gadgets, I just can't.. I tried and it was like a foriegn concept not only to my eyes but also my hands.. I love love love the feel of a real book in my hands, turning the pages, the smell of a new book.. 
Right now I am currently reading a book called "Hunted Priest".. 

it's about a priests life during the reign of Queen Elizabeth in the 15 and 1600's.. Yes she was like her father Henry the VIII..She tortured, and murdered anyone who did not believe in the "state religion" and Catholics were first on her list unlike her sister Queen Mary who, was a deeply devout Catholic like her mother Queen Katherine.. It's a very very interesting book if you like this kind of history which I do.. I'm almost finished with it...

My reading interested are mostly Catholic reading, about the Saints, biographies, Jesus, anything to do with the Catholic Church... What do you like to read?


  1. I am reading 2 books at once right now. One on my Kindle and the other is hardback. I love the Beverly Lewis series about life in the Amish community. All fiction, but good. I have always been a reader from the time I could read. My oldest grandchild is like that and my oldest son was too at that age and still to this day can read a book a day if he wants to.

  2. Most of my reading right now has to do with understanding the Catholic faith or living it out. I am reading The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything by James Martin, SJ, Introduction to Mary by Mark Miravalle, Triumph: The Power and the Glory of the Catholic Church by Crocker, The Baltimore Catechism, The Imitation of Christ by Kempis and The Catholic Controversy by St. Francis De Sales I recently finished The Catholic Perspective on Paul by Taylor Marshall,and The Catholic Mary by Dave Armstrong. I tend to read a bit at a time in each book I am reading. I also do a lot of reading online on certain blogs to understand more about the Catholic Faith. (2,000 years is a lot to get through!) If you like reading true stories about priests , the one called Priestblock 25487: A Memoir of Dachau was good. When my mind needs a rest I sometimes read a good ole mystery.

  3. Hi Robyn, I just read your morning ritual with the dogs, boy I am exhausted just reading what you do. I think special need dogs end up with very special people. My Max has wheat and corn allergies, I bad hip and a muscle atrophy disease in his face. He has more fatty tumors than I can count, but I just love him to death. Hope you husband gets relief from the upcoming back surgery.
    By the way I love to read, too.

  4. Good for you! I haven't done any reading for awhile and I really need to crack open a book for a change. I am so glad that you like the pasta salad recipe Robyn. I hope it turned out for you! Have a wonderful week! Angie xo
