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.

Hail Mary by Henri De Longchamp

Hail Mary by Henri De Longchamp
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Booklet, 24 pages
Published 2001 by The Dominican Centre, St. Jude's Shrine, Montreal,
Source: gifted

The "Hail Mary" is very dear to me and when one converts to Catholicism it is so comforting to find this prayer that praises Our Lady and asks for her prayers in return because we are sinners, praying for all the sinners and to be there praying for us right at the moment of our death. This little booklet is a collection of sermons by the author commentating on each line of the prayer. First sermon is on Hail Mary, 2nd on "Full of Grace", etc. It's not riveting reading but a nice explanation and a book I've passed on to someone else.
