More Bargain Priced Books and Promotions

by | Oct 14, 2015 | Bargain Books | 4 comments

This morning Rose and I read The Ink Garden of Brother Theophane which I had slipped into our October Book Basket.  I first shared a review of this book back in 2010, just after it was published, after discovering it at the Tudor Guild Gift Shop following a play we attended at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It is such a beautiful book with a sweet story about the youngest monk in a small medieval Irish monastery. Amazon is offering it at an excellent price (35% off) right now!

I also wanted to pass along a couple great promotions from two of my favorite publishers.

Bethlehem Books
Right now Bethlehem Books is having a “48 hour Christmas is Coming Sale” on Wednesday and Thursday of this week (today and tomorrow!) only. All of their print titles are 45% off plus FREE Shipping! No coupon necessary, all print books have been re-priced on their website to reflect the sale. We already own most of their books but there are a couple more I’ll be ordering for our family.

St. Augustine Academy Press
Did you hear about the fire at Institute of Christ the King in Chicago? St. Augustine Academy Press is generously donating 100% of their gross sales from now until the end of the month of October toward their rebuilding fund. “Whether you decide to donate directly or to donate by buying books (or both), please do consider lending a hand so that the Institute can rise once more from the ashes.”

    Jessica, do you have the Bethlehem Books on Archimedes and Herodutus? I'm considering them, but I'm a review/recommendation junkie and have a hard time buying an unknown book.
    Many thanks, Jessica

    Yes! We have both of those on our shelves! 🙂 I haven't read them myself, but my boys enjoyed reading them a couple years ago. I don't think my girls have read them yet. I'll add them to their reading/book lists when we study Ancient History again.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
