Here goes:
1. I'm reading A Good Man is Hard to Find, Flannery O'Connor's collection of short stories. I enjoy it (through the gruesomeness) and appreciate her humor and symbolism...but am grappling with her stated purpose of revealing the mystery of God's grace...where is it? There's a flash of a hint of it, maybe, then poof: it seems to be gone.

2. Recently finished a bio of Catherine of Siena by Sigrid Undset; bio of Joan of Arc by Mark Twain (wow); The Good Earth; A Lantern in her Hand by Bess Streeter Aldrich.

3. Next: with Lent approaching, St. Thomas Aquinas by GK Chesterton; more CS Lewis; The Life of Christ by Fulton Sheen. Also more Dostoevsky whom I love (can't quite pinpoint why!).

4. Keep meaning to finish: The Garden of Reading (short stories about gardens and gardening by Michele Slung).

5. Keep meaning to start: The Balkan Trilogy (Fortunes of War) by Olivia Manning: recommended but I keep getting sidetracked. Also an old volume of Christmas stories by Dickens found in a used bookstore.
