I'm right in the middle of From Slave to Priest: A Biography of the Reverend Augustine Tolton by Caroline Hemesath right now (published by Ignatius Press). It's a really interesting slice-of-history/biography about the first black priest in the United States. Fr. Tolton was born a slave in 1854.
I had a particularly large chunk of reading time today at the orthodontist as Terri had her braces taken off. More details later.
