      I'd like to let you all know that I always post an image of the books I post
      here on my blog, usually on the same day. See today's book cover at
      http://anabragahenebrysjournal.blogspot.com/. All other PopeStNickV books I
      have posted will be under the PopeStNickV tag on sidebar.

      Also, I was browsing my library online today and noticed that Piers Paul's
      read new fiction "Death of a Pope" from Ignatius Press is on order and there
      are four holds on it already!

      God bless!
