Summer Reading List
Books on English Catholicism (pre-Deformation and post-Deformation):
Yes, I'm STILL reading this one. I'm plodding along, actually, and the fault lies with me, not the book. In fact, it's a GREAT book, but very dense. I read a few pages at a time here and there, in between my other reading. Hope to complete it this summer.
I'm REALLY looking forward to reading this. I'll write a review of the book and post it here when I've completed reading it.
Books on Catholic Social Thought:
Here's a post I did about the book when it first came out in March. I'm just now getting around to reading it this summer. I'll write a review of the book and post it here when I've completed reading it.
Books on some local Ohio history/War of 1812:
I finished this one last week. A very good, concise and "thoroughly readable popular history of the War of 1812." The title, however, should be "1812: The War That Forged Two Nations", in reference to both the U.S. and Canada.
The definitive history of the Battle of Lake Erie (September 10, 1813), as well as the events leading up to and in the aftermath of the battle. I hope to start on this one next week.
A look at the Battle of Lake Erie compiling essays from the War on the Great Lakes Symposium that took place on the 175th anniversary of the battle 20 years ago - the bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie is in 5 years. I'm currently reading this one and hope to finish it up this weekend.
