Another Catholic Reading List

Another Catholic Reading List:

This one was referred to me and comes from a few sources, I believe the original is here at Elmbrook Center and it on Amazon.com as a 'Listmainia List': is shows up as a summer recommended reading list for University students interested in the Catholic Tradition. Though not as extensive as 'A Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan' by: Fr. John McCloskey it is definitely worth taking a look at.
