Well... I am not sure if the author "ranks" them... (I am not finished yet). The books are in chronological order..... almost one leading to the other. Some books did more damage than others.

It is a great read.

I stumbled on to a great book in the local library that I am reading. It's called, "Flight of Passage" by Rinker Buck. It was written back in 1997 and is about the true story of two teenage brothers, 17 & 15, (The author being one.), who in 1966 completely restored a Piper Cub airplane and flew it coast to coast from Basking Ridge, New Jersey to San Juan Capistrano, Calif. It's a wonderful book. I learned to fly on a Piper J-3 and Cessna 172 and the book has brought back fond memories of those years. It is really a story of the rites of passage however and the qualities of manhood. The boys come from a large, imperfect, but loving Catholic family and although they are typical teens, somewhat irreverent and a bit profane, their family and faith are part of the story of their adventures.

I am now reading

Pope Benedict's Divine Mercy Mandate By David Came
Economics for Helen By Hilaire Belloc
and
The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary By Bd. Anne Catherine Emmerich

I'm still reading the 1st volume of the Collected Works of Chesterton, but I've read Orthodoxy before and I just finished Heretics, so I think I might skip to The Blatchford Controversies and come back to Orthodoxy after I've read more from my small collection of Chesterton works

That's one of the few Bellocs I don't own. Let us know how it goes.

I'm about to start the 2nd volume of the Collected Works of G.K. Chesterton (which contains St. Francis of Assisi, The Everlasting Man - I've already this one but I probably not to re-read it because it was really a heavy read, and St. Thomas Aquinas: "The Dumb Ox")

the 1st volume was really really good. :)

I am currently reading summa of the summa by Peter Kreeft. Borrowed it from a library (that doesn't mean I don't want to buy it!) I also read volume 2 (on medieval philosophy) of Copleston's "A History of Philosophy."

Hmm...impressive. Keep up the good work.
