James MantoothTranslator, Carmel
What book are you currently reading? The Catholic Devotional.
What have you drawn from it? I''ve been learning about the way of the cross and the symbology of the various stations.
Would you recommend it to someone? I would recommend it, because it''s the foundation of a major system of thought, and it''s universal and practical.
Marcia D. StearnMerchant, Seaside
What have you been reading? The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve.
Do you like it? Well, the writing is very good and descriptive. The people in it are very real.
What book would you re-read forever? Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. It''s like re-watching a good movie over and over again.

What''s a good book to read? I just got done with A Samurai''s Garden.
What is that about? It''s a metaphor for the life of two people set in Japan. It was fabulous.
Any others? You know, I want people to know about this book Confessions of Madame Psyche. It was written in the ''60s, but I don''t think many people have heard of it. It is very good.
