Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.


I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

Who made you?

Acquired: Gifted a copy from ds's Godmother.

Reason for Reading:  We have been using this book as part of our religion studies every school day, very slowly, for about the past year.

A very simple yet thorough introduction to the Catechism and church teachings for youngsters and new Catholics of any age.  Simple question and answer format takes you through 11 topics starting with "Why Am I In the World" and ending with "Sin".  The final three pages present a collection of popular prayers.  Very useful and easy to understand.  Gave my son a good grounding in Catholic theology and we both memorized the ten commandments in order!  Highly recommended.
