UPDATED: Humble Thanks on Buy a Nun a Book Day

It's not even September 17 and three lovely people have already showered me with blessings (of the literary kind) for Buy a Nun a Book Day. Thanks, V.P., M.S. and C.S. (from Malta!); I am humbled by your kindness. I've already polished off one book (The Lost Painting, about that Caravaggio that showed up--after a 500 year vanishing act--in a Jesuit residence in Dublin; fascinating!) and I look forward to pondering the riches of the other titles (especially the Kindle edition of the Bible!).

Just wanted to say thanks so very much.

September 17 update:
I just learned that our sisters in San Antonio, a community that was just started up this summer, are seeking books (and key subscriptions) to build a community library from scratch. If you'd like to contribute, here's their "wish list."  (You might have to sign out of Amazon to see it; my friend kept getting her own list!)

You realize we have the only signed Caravaggio painting, right? You definitely have to come to Malta one of these days.

Did NOT know that! You are right: St Paul is just going to have to get me over there to see it (and so much more!); it's on his to-do list!
