Taking Home “The Confessions of St. Augustine”

I just took the very first book on this year’s reading list off of the shelf, at the library where I work. Guess what? I’m going to be the FIRST person to read it and it was purchased June 7, 2007.

I’m a little scared, to be honest. Yet, intrigued at the same time…

I’m not going to try and gobble this one down. It will be a process and I’m definitely going to read other books while I’m working on this one.

What about you? Have you ever read it? If so, what were YOUR thoughts?

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.

    Toni – i read this YEARS AGO (it took awhile) but was a great ‘faith-building read.’ Stay with it!… Last year for Lent, however, i tried to read St. Augustine’s City of God (a bit thicker tome, the kind you have to read each paragraph 3 or 4 times to ‘get’).. it’s still in the ‘reading pile’ (actually, it moved back onto the shelf..kinda weighed the rest of the pile down!)

    your blog is so amazing – thanx for sharing your writing gift with us!
