Catholic Fire--Catholic Books Meme

I have a LOT more that are not listed on this that I have read and loved, and some that I did not like at all. Some of THESE titles hold NO interest for me whatsoever. A few of the 'older' titles are some that some day I may get to, even if I did not italicize them, but not in the near future (have to many bought and waiting to be read to even think about those that I DID italicize, much less all the others).

Got this from Jean of Catholic Fire.

God bless!!

Hi All,
I didn't tag anyone for this online, as I know how busy everyone is this time of year with vacation plans and summer activities, but if this meme appeals to you and you are not swamped, would you please consider it?
Enjoy!
God bless you,
Jean

My answer:

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you would like to read. (If it were given to you as a gift or if you had the money to buy it.)
3) Put the books you LOVE in red or underline them.

I'll try to remember to do this when I have more time. Just got back from a postponed vacation (from last year when I had my surgery), and attended the NRLC in DC while visiting my sister and her family. I have to work, clean, do laundry, etc... I NEED A VACATION FROM MY VACATION!

God bless!
