Cool! I tried reading Brothers K once and didn't make it very far. Do you like it? What is Life on the Mississippi about?

I'm currently reading On the Christian Meaning of Suffering (Salvifici Doloris) by Bl. John Paul II, Praying with Padre Pio by Eileen Dunn Bertanzetti, and The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis. I am reading for Lent but I plan to continue reading after Lent. I'm enjoying my reading and I think it's going to prove helpful in my spiritual life.

These also look really good. I read Killer Angels for high school and loved it. :)

Great choices! I'm really curious about the first one. Anything by Bl. Pope John Paul II is bound to be good. :)

It is good but a bit of a hard read. I find myself having to re-read what I just read sometimes. I think Bl. John Paul II knew a lot about suffering so he definitely knew what he was talking about.
