I've not read any of Chesterton's fiction. My wife enjoyed the Father Brown stories, but I never got into those.

Do read that story, it is simply outstanding fiction.

I love Heretics, Orthodoxy, Everlasting Man, Charles Dickens, Intro to Book of Job, etc.

That link has all his works avaialble online for you to read. Let me also note that when he writes about people like Thomas Aquinas he goes off in so many different tangents so its not only about who is talking about but so much more. I really liked the Aquinas work at that.

A little piece of edifying Christian fiction, none other than High School Sweethearts.

And by reading, I mean read.

So what was high-school like for Mary and Joseph?

Always wondered?

You need no longer. (Language and some adult themes. Rated for "young teens" or older, 13+)

High School Sweethearts a little daunting at the moment?

^Are you referring to my reading of Assassination Vacation? I plan on reading the first 100 pages then just skimming through the rest of it and getting some background info about the historical events described therein.

No, my silly post above yours, but let me know if it is any good as I have a buddy who might love it, if it is. He probably knows everything about the events contained in the text, but he might like if it is a decent read.

Thanks.

Too many books and not enough time to read. Just picked up Gogol's Dead Souls but will wait until if Dante is a go.

Itching for some Tolstoy. I have been completely biased towards the Russians whom I have an immediate kinship with.

Need to read more of the Old Testament. One day I will read Genesis in one sitting without closing the book and saying this is a load of crap!

Russian Minstrels, a short history of the skomorokhi. Not a terribly exciting or well-written read but informative enough for my purposes. This book traces the history of the skomorokhi from their murky origins as possible pagan priests to their eventual proscription by Tsar Alexei and their enduring cultural legacy in Russian folklore, music, dance, and theatre.
