CURRENTLY READING

  Orthodox Spirituality   Mid-Life Spirituality

Purgatorio   Max Gate

Orthodox Spirituality
= almost done, the end on Love is so intense and beautiful!
Mid-Life Spirituality and Jungian Archetypes
= timely! Solid psycho-spiritual (Christian) book
Purgatorio
= humming along with The Divine Comedy – vol 2
Max Gate

READING NEXT

The Nature of the Beast  Too Dark To Sleep

All is not Forgotten

The Nature of the Beast
= see below why I won’t be listening to it, but read it
Too Dark To Sleep
= offered by the author at Printers Row Lit Fest
All is Not Forgotten
= received for review

CURRENT AND NEXT AUDIOBOOKS

    The Long Way Home   Murder at the Lanterne Rouge

The Long Way Home
= a new page in the life of Armand Gamache!
And alas, this will be the last audiobook of the series for me.
The narrator died,
and the other 2 narrators for next audio really don’t work for me at all.
They speak way too fast, too harshly,
not conveying the atmosphere of peace and goodness
that emanated from Armand with the voice of Ralph Cosham.
Very sad!
Murder at the Lanterne Rouge
= I started listening to it last month, in between 2 books by Louise Penny.
Will go back to it, it’s a series I also enjoy very much.
Each book is set in a different neighborhood of Paris
