Book O'licious

Memed by Julie of the winsomely named blog and arguably the most likeable person in St. Blogland. (Speaking of memes, regarding that earlier one about things I "just don't get" I forgot one: the voluminous bedrooms of the 3000+ square foot McMansions that are popular now. You could fit an Olympic-sized pool in some of the master bedrooms. I mean, I can understand a big living room. But bedroom? I don't even want to know what people do in rooms that size.)
Total Number of Books I’ve Owned: Somewhere north of 3,000. Not many by Steven Riddle standards, but enough to encourage rootedness since the thought of moving them leaves me underwhelmed.

Last Book I Bought: Dom Cuthbert Butler's history of the first Vatican Council. (Couldn't find "Thomists Are From Mars, Augustinians from Venus" else I'd probably gotten that.)

Last Book I Read: Mr. Blue – Myles Connolly

5 Books that mean a lot to me: An impossible question. I'll expand it a bit. Since the bible & the catechism are everyone's list I'll assume they transcend the category.

The Correspondence of Walker Percy & Shelby Foote - Tolsen, ed.

Old Thunder – A Life of Hilaire Belloc - Joseph Pearce

Lost in the Cosmos - W. Percy

Sun Dancing - Geoffrey Moorhouse

The Circle Dancers - Diana Der-Hovanessian

Rome Sweet Home - Hahn

The Secret of the Rosary - St. Louis De Monfort
