IMPORTANT NOTE: By special request of some of my students (who are on retreat) -- I have been asked to extend the deadline for entries until Wednesday.
So, read over the list and add any books you would like to see on this list. I will close the entries on Wednesday.
Please add you personal favorites to this list via the com box so we can put together a great Blogger's Choice Catholic Reading List.
We are off to a great start!
