Some More Books to Brag About & A New Picture of Me!! ♥
The past two weeks or so have seen me inundated with an amazing array of great reading material!
In addition to a shit ton of magazines & journals, I've been blessed with some mighty fine books.
Here is a partial list, which also includes some older books I've yet to read fully.
I did get thoroughly into a book I picked up several weeks ago, "Petrus Romanus: the Final Pope is Here" by T. Horn & C. Putnam. Despite it's obvious anti-Catholic bigotry, it's very interesting and an exciting read!
