Question of the day.

What are three books on your to read list?

My answer:

I have quite a pile of books to read so let’s look at it and see what’s going to be next. The three books that I’m going to read next, unless something else comes up in between that I’d be interested in enough that I’d want to prioritise, are quite diverse in their topics, but they’re all non fiction. First there’s a Polish book – “Wampiry, Potwory, Upiory i Inne Nieziemskie Stwory” (which translates to Vampires, Monsters, Phantoms, and Other Unearthly Creatures) by Sylwia Błach and Paulina Daniluk, which is, as one might guess from the title, about all sorts of monsters and scary creatures from various mythologies and other folklore that has accumulated in the world over time.

Then I’m going to read another book about the Miracle of Fatima (I’ve read quite a few before). It’s Fatima: My Immaculate Heart Will Triumph by fr. Joao Scognamiglio Cla Dias, however I’m going to read it in Polish. For those who may not know, the Miracle of Fatima took place in 1917 in a small village of Fatima in Portugal, where, over the course of a few months, three children – Lucia Santos and Francisco and Jacinta Marto – had apparitions of the Virgin Mary. These apparitions have since then been declared worthy of belief by the Catholic Church, and the cultus of the Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Fatima has been approved, and the children have been canonised.

And then the next book I’m going to read is in English, and it’s And I don’t Want to Live This Life by Deborah Spungen, mother of Nancy Spungen who was the girlfriend of Sid Vicious from Sex Pistols, and who was murdered by him, she also struggled with mental illness since childhood.

So yeah, a lot of diversity here.

How about you? 🙂

  1. Wow, that’s fascinating about the miracle of Fatima!! 😮

    I might read some more self-help books, and… hmm…. I don’t know! But I suddenly want to go to the bookstore! Maybe I’ll arrange that today. It’s been a while, and they might have my fave magazines!!

  2. The next book I want to read is “Braiding Sweetgrass” by Robin Wall Kimmerer. She is a Native American versed in ancient teachings of the oldest plants and animals and as a botanist she works with the science behind it. After that “Goods” Emanuelle Coccia, about the goods and commodities we buy not only being just products but a representation of our morality. And finally, thanks to you, Deborah Spungen.
