Hello Everyone … and Welcome to My Bookshelf

Hello Everyone … and Welcome to My Bookshelf December 5, 2011

Here’s the thing.

I read all the time.

All. the. time.

Some of it Catholic. Some of it not.

And if that isn’t enough, I talk about what I read all the time.


All. the. time.

To everyone.

And not all in one place.

My big reviews tend to go up at Happy Catholic, which is where I live. (With a lot of other stuff, natch.)

My daily comments on books tend to wind up at Goodreads.

I read books to everyone on my podcast, Forgotten Classics. (Right now we’re alternating between Genesis, translation and commentary by Robert Alter and Bridge of Birds, a fantasy of ancient China that never was by Barry Hughart. Both under copyright and both being read aloud with permission from the authors … nice, right?) And then I talk about them when I’m done reading.

Thanks to my pals, Scott and Jesse, at SFFaudio (a group blog), I get to score some audiobooks so I can review them there. Sometimes I participate on their podcast. Talking about books, of course.

Scott (from SFFaudio) and I also talk about our favorite books and movies … and the traces of the One Reality we see in them … at our podcast, A Good Story is Hard to Find.

So the idea was that if there were one place where I could gather everything together … from all my heaps of books all over the interwebs … that would be mighty handy for everyone. Including me, of course.

Hence the idea of my bookshelf here. (Isn’t that nice of Patheos to give me a spot to pile all this stuff?)

I’ll be putting reviews, comments, podcast links, and all kinds of other bookish stuff here. All books, all the time.

Some of it Catholic. Some of it not.

That’s my promise.

I think we’re going to have fun.

One thing’s for sure.

We’re definitely going to talk.

All the time.
