Worthwhile Reading

We are busy people. Most readers of this blog are probably homeschooling mothers of large families who are very busy people. I intend to compile a series of book and periodical reviews to suggest what I hope is worthwhile reading.

Books for the Children

Tally of Books for 2013-2014 School Year

Ginny's Favorite Chapter Books for Boys (check out all her book lists)

"How to Choose Age Appropriate Books for Advanced Readers" by Tanya Turek (not Catholic/Christian, but useful--use your parental discretion)

Spiritual Classics

Daily Spiritual Reading
Divine Intimacy by Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D.

Fiction

"Lord of the World" by Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson
"A Canticle for Leibowitz" by Walter M. Miller, Jr.
"Ida Elisabeth" by Sigrid Undset
"Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte
"To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee

Non-Fiction

We subscribe to all of these except for First Things, which we let lapse purely for lack of reading time.

First Things
