New entries in the Loyola Classics series:

My book club is reading 11 books from the Loyola Classics series this year. Cruising around I found that the next four books for the series have been scheduled:

In August: The Keys of the Kingdom by A. J. Cronin. Loved the movie, have the book on my bookshelf. Will pick it up after the Summer Reading Challenge is over. I'm determined not to deviate from my list....

In September: Cosmas, or: The Love of God by Pierre de Calan. Know absolutely nothing about either this book or the author.

In October: The Unoriginal Sinner and the Ice Cream God by John R. Powers. We've already read Powers' Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? in book club, so we elected to skip the 2nd Powers' volume, The Last Catholic in America. Guess now I'll have to read Last Catholic AND Unoriginal.

In November: Dear James by Jon Hassler. This is a gem. I've mentioned Hassler probably 100 times on this blog. Read him. Start with Staggerford and move on from there. He's genius.

I'm impressed with the Loyola Classics series. I think the reissuance of classic religious fiction is a worthy task. Plus, it makes picking out book club books so much easier!!!!


I liked John Powers so much...I wrote him to tell him...and he wrote me back :o)

Yay! I wrote Jon Hassler, and he wrote me back, too!
