I have signed up to read the Catechism in a year, flocknote (www.flocknote.com will email you a little bit everyday so that it could be read in a year. I also purchased "The Year of Faith A Bible Study Guide for Catholics" by Fr Mitch Pacwa, S.J. I could do with learning a little bit more about the saints.

I found a new book with Reflections from Pope John Paul II called rediscoverying the rosary. So far I have only read the intro but my favorite version of the rosary is a scriptural one so I am looking forward to reading my new book!
