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.

DVD Break: Catholicism The Journey of a Lifetime

Catholicism: The Journey of a Lifetime - (2011) - (DVD) - (Boxed Set) - (own) - (watched at weekly "class" put on by Mt. Carmel)

I own this set but did not watch my copy as a 10-week class was put on at the local Mt. Carmel by a priest who occasionally presides at our church.  A 5 disc-10 episode documentary program.  This was absolutely amazing! Father Barron is just one of the absolute best teachers of current times, comparable to a 21st century Fulton Sheen imho.  The whole series covers the history of the church, saints, theology and why and what the faith is and why it matters.  From episodes on Who is Jesus, Who is God, Who is Mary, to Hell, Purgatory, the Saints, the Sacraments and my favourite episode on the Eucharist, Barron imparts knowledge and information with pure joy.  A must watch for all Catholics!!  However the show has purposely been made accessible to people of all or no faiths.  This is not a preachy, evangelical or conversion program.  It is historical and information, filmed around the world in all the great cities and filled with art from throughout the ages.  Anyone interested in history or finding out about Catholicism from someone who speaks frankly will enjoy this.
