Summer Reading

Calling all CGT readers! Join Catholic students and alumni of the University of Maryland in a summer reading club. Here's the rundown so far (details may change):

The mistress of this humble blog, Mary, along with a contributor of our brother blog, Catholicae Testudines, Peter Terp (a doctoral student in English literature, btw) will administer the book club with help from our fellow CGT and CT contributors.

We're reading one book each month of the summer - June, July and August. Books should be read by the 15th of each month and from the 15th through the end of each month, we will post commentaries/reflections on the blog and hope our readers will jump into the discussion.

Here's what we're thinking of: Pope John Paul's Memory and Identity, one of Pope Benedict XVI's books from when he was Cardinal Ratzinger and a piece of fiction. Please leave suggestions as to what book from the then-Cardinal Ratzinger we should read (shouldn't be too long but give us a good taste of him and his writing) and also what piece of fiction we should read (though Peter will have the final say on this one).

If you want to join the book club, shoot me an e-mail at catholicgirltalk@gmail.com and I'll send out e-mails with more details. Thanks!
