An Illustrated Dictionary of Saints
- I know it has been a long time--the busy holiday season and a trip to see my family in Brazil got me a bit behind!
I have three pre-publication suggestions, one today and two more forthcoming, for Catholic reference books. As my library system has limited purchase suggestions to books published in the past 6 months, I have learned to scout pre-publication titles at Amazon. As usual, go to my blog http://anabragahenebrysjournal.blogspot.com/ or to Amazon to see the cover.
Check to see if this title is already in your library's catalog. If it is, put a hold on it and check it out. If not, fill out a patron request form right away. This can usually be done online at your library's website. To read past library recommendations visit:
