I am reading Programming Ruby (2nd edition): The Pragmatic Programmers' Guide. Hey, I'm a computer programmer, so this stuff is fascinating to me. It would put most people to sleep. Prior to that, it was the Diary of St. Faustina and the books of Ezekiel, Isaiah, and Daniel from the Navarre Bible Study books with notations from many Early Church Fathers and St. Jose Maria Escriva.

I am reading a book called Crackle. It is a book about war dogs during the Vietnam War.


My son is looking into enlisting in the Army and the recruiters are talking to him about being a K-9 dog trainer. So I watched some youtube videos and in the comments they recommended the book. They say it is about a seventh grade level and fictional but of some real life experiences.

Hi everyone! This is my first forum post.

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 currently reading Precious as Silver Imagining your life with God By Bishop George H. Niederauer and i'm reading it for lent as long as people from the parish.

I'm reading "Dead Man Walking" by Sister Helen Prejean. Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn starred in the movie of thesame name. Sister Helen is an excellent writer and researcher; she has a mind that cuts through clutter to the truth and is an excellent observer. I bought the paperback for 50 cents from an independent bookstore that was closing.

29 years ago, I read Faulkner's Light in August. I was 23 andliving in Los Angeles. I remember floating on a raft in the pool reading it. So now I'm re-reading it to see if it was as good as I remembered it. His language is something. About the only thing to compare it to is the Old testament or Shakespeare.
