The Queue

The fault almost certainly lies with me, but the previous book I was using to learn how to pray the Divine Office was proving an obstacle; so, I've decided to try a different how-to guide. I've bumped How the Reformation Happened to the top of the queue because I definitely want to read it in 2017, the five hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation (which sparked the subsequent Catholic Counter-Reformation).

FYI: you can borrow our copy of books, if you want the read it and see if you want your own copy for reference. (As you are currently reading the same book I grabbed for reference on beer fast.)
