Newest Novena Book is Now Available

Good morning, readers (at least it’s morning as I’m writing this!). As promised, here is your update on the availability of my latest devotional.

Seven for Sekhmet is now available here. It joins the passel of other pocket-sized devotionals that I’ve been doing lately. I have a few more planned but probably not until at least mid-winter.

Now I’m off to drink some tea, make some breakfast, and get ready for my patristics class (at the ungodly hour of 9am lol). enjoy your day, everyone.

Increase Your Book Hoard ๐Ÿ“™+๐Ÿ“š = ๐Ÿ˜

I love books. I am an avid bibliophile with a serious literary habit. As such, I just love the tradition in Iceland called the Jolabokaflod (Yule Book Flood) where people buy books for themselves, and as gifts.

The tradition originated during World War II when foreign imports were restricted, but paper was cheap. Icelandโ€™s population was not large enough to support a year-round publishing industry. In Iceland one of 10 Icelanders will publish a book in their lifetime, and one of the hallmark signs that the yule season is approaching is when the Icelandic Bokatidindi (a catalogue of all the new books) is delivered for free to each Icelandic residence. So the frenzy begins!
