Hi everyone! This is my first forum post. biggrin

What books are you reading? Are they for Lent? If so, I assume they're spiritual/theological. If not, what genre are they? If you're not reading books, are you reading magazines or blogs? What do you like about what you're reading?

I'm reading the ODD THOMAS series by Dean Koontz. The author was featured on EWTN (The World Over) in October last year, so I decided to check him out. biggrin I use a Nook Simple Touch. Does anyone use ebook readers here too?

I just looked up the series on Wikipedia and it looks fascinating! I might have to check them out. Is Dean Koontz Catholic?

I confess I had to look this one up, too, but it sounds like it was very influential in exposing the evils of communist Russia. It amazes me that one book had such a powerful impact. Thanks for responding!

These look very interesting, especially since they are along the lines of things I've been thinking about lately.

Yes, quite vocal about his Faith (interviews and so on), and I dare say his Odd Thomas series is a Catholic fiction novel (lots of references to GK Chesterton's philosophy and other Catholic ideas). He reminds me of a Catholic Stephen King. wink

I'm reading 2 books now. I'm not sure if I will finish them before they are due back at the library. The first is I Declare by Joel Osteen. The second is Straight Talk, No Chaser by Steve Harvey. I like books that fit into the self-help category. Although, I do enjoy non-fiction and health magazines.
