Summer Reading Lists (in progress)

Well, summer hasn't quite started here yet, but I'm already starting in on our own summer reading program lists (good for a Cold Stone Creamery treat upon completion). Here's Ria's (much of it picked by her):

Memory and Identity by Pope John Paul II
A Dickens of her choice (previously unread)
A Chesterton of her choice (previously unread)
A Map of Life by Frank Sheed
Dante's Inferno
The Mystery of the Periodic Table by Benjamin Wiker
Rerum Novarum by Pope Leo XIII
What it Means to be a Christian by Pope Benedict
The Jeweller's Shop by Pope John Paul II
Stories by Leo Tolstoy: The Forged Coupon, The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Walk in the Light

I need to work on Terri's list next. She is interested in reading a lot of history (which is good, because we didn't get to as much as I had hoped during the year).

"The Death of Ivan Ilyich" was such a moving read. Tolstoy is a beautiful writer.

And I love, love, love Dante.
