On My Bookshelf

Like my life and my children, this page is a work in progress. I’ll try to update it periodically, but just because I share a book here doesn’t necessarily mean I’ve cracked its spine open much or even started to read it yet (although some of the books listed probably have been voraciously read and enjoyed!). What it does mean is that I’ve purchased it, borrowed it, downloaded it on my Kindle, and/or checked it out from the library and that I do have a desire to read it.

You can also peruse my posts with “Books” tagged to them. Or, check out some of my media reviews.

Finally, I’ve included a sampling of some of my favorite books arranged by categories like parenting, homeschooling, cookbooks, fiction, and good for the soul over at my Amazon store.

Happy Catholic: Glimpses of God in Everyday Life
