I am currently reading "Jesus of Nazareth" by our beloved pope Benedict XIV and I am really loving it. I've also read "Rome Sweet Home" by Scott Hahn and Kimberly Hahn recently, thinking how every love story with Christ is fascinating. The way they have found their way in the Catholic Church is riveting.

A little gruesome at points.

I'm currently reading Rediscover Catholicism by Matthew Kelly. It was given to everyone at Christmas Mass in the Parish I grew up in. The Archbishop wants everyone in the archdiocese to have it.

I'm also reading The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Official Movie Guide by Brian Sibley. Read the book many years ago when my kids were into it. I can't wait to see the movie.

The Other Side by Michael Brown. Solidly Catholic...about people, even little children, who died and were brought back and they describe what they saw...There is no way the children could have known what they described. Incredible book.

Just finished "The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz", the WWII memoirs of a 90-year old British soldier who spent part of the war as a POW at a forced labor camp adjacent to Auschwitz III, and got to know a few of the Jewish persons who he worked with in the factory. A couple of times he even exchanged uniforms with one of them, to spend the night and learn more about what really was going on over there.

Keeping with the same theme, I started "Schindler's List" last night, but not sure yet if I'll stick with it.

The Unincorporated Man. It's a scifi book about a guy who awaken after a 300 year sleep to find the work quite different. It's ok so far but quite detailed and can be hard to follow if your not familiar with corporations, shares and partnerships which is something I work with in my job. It's
