cover-stoutheartswhizzingbiscuits

Stout Hearts and Whizzing Biscuits (Kingdom of Patria #1)  and Stoop of Mastodon Meadow (Kingdom of Patria, #2) by Daniel McInerny When I was first contacted about this, the author assured me that they’re a completely electronic project. But guess what! They are now available through Amazon as hard copy books, too! Oh, my! What a project! Maps [Read More...]

War in Heaven

“War in Heaven” is a novel written by Charles Williams in 1930. This was his first novel and from what I have read, it was rated as his best novel.   I had been meaning to get around to reading this author mainly since he was one of the famous Inklings and a sale on [Read More...]

Of Withered Apples by Philip K. Dick

Angela’s Song

cover-angelassong

Great story. Real characters. Good writing. This book was, in some ways, applied Theology of the Body. It’s romance that’s just about what I like and Catholicism not shoved down my throat. Guys, be warned: I’d call this chick lit. Gals, be encouraged: it’s gooood. It’s “name a big well-sold author” good. It’s completely Catholic, but [Read More...]

Catholicism Pure and Simple by Fr. Dwight Longenecker

If a good person decides to fight against evil he will always be at a disadvantage. … The evil person will naturally use every devious and nasty trick he can think of. That’s why he’s bad: he is a liar, a cheat, a murderer and a thoroughgoing scoundrel. However, the good person cannot use the [Read More...]

Terrapin: A Novel I Enjoyed Muchly

cover-terrapin_3d

(Yes, muchly is a word. At least when you are as delighted by a book as I was by Terrapin.) You know what I love more than almost anything? A good story. When that story is packaged between two covers and called a book, even better. (Yeah, it’s okay on my Kindle too. I’ll give you [Read More...]

The Crimes of Galahad by H. Albertus Boli, LL.D.

The Crimes of Galahad by H. Albertus Boli Ll.D. My rating: 4 of 5 stars I’ve long been a fan of Dr. Boli’s Celebrated Magazine. I was mildly interested when The Crimes of Galahad was published and then read a review from two reviewers I trust who both enjoyed it and also declined to describe [Read More...]

Reviewing “Cool for Cats” by Andrew Ordover

418HhuaKSoL

The release of the audiobook, read by author Andrew Ordover, prompted me to update my review. The price can’t be beat – $5! For why you want to hear it, read on! And I didn’t want to rely on Internet archives. First of all, our local paper is crap, and it keeps crap archives online. [Read More...]

Galactic Pot Healer by Philip K. Dick

Galactic Pot-Healer by Philip K. Dick My rating: 4 of 5 stars The Glimmung wants Joe Fernwright. Fernwright is a pot-healer – a repairer of ceramics – in a drably utilitarian future where such skills have little value. The Glimmung is a being that looks something like a gyroscope, something like a teenaged girl, and [Read More...]

Julie’s 2013 Personal Reading Challenge

My 2012 book challenge was so rewarding, making me pick up books I would just keep skipping over in favor of lighter reading. I’m doing it again this year. Some books are carried over from last year and some I dropped because they just didn’t look interesting to me right now. But you can see [Read More...]
