Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering

Sarah writes in her profile:
If I'm not off hiding somewhere with a good book, chances are I'm chasing a toddler or a Jack Russell (or sleeping, because every mom can use a nap!). I found Prince Charming and married him, and now we enjoy the idiosyncrasies of life in an old farmhouse. Oh yeah, and we root for the Buckeyes. Every time.
And of her December reading summary:
December was a month for reading series, and for remembering old loves. I read Tolkien's Lord of the Rings books and I started the Traveling Pants series. Then, because that to-read shelf is overflowing, I read a book that I just can't buy my own copy of right now (it's unavailable on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble!), though I certainly will. I was pretty amused to notice that in 2006 I read 57 books, but this year, I only got up to 40 - could that be the Lemony Snicket books? Perhaps the fact that I haven't listened to audio this year? Maybe that I've been otherwise engaged? Hard telling, really. And it's not really a matter of much importance, that final number - it's just interesting to someone who loves lists - and when you love lists and you love books, well, a list of books is a natural thing!
And of a new service she wants to share
There's a new service that I just have to share with you, because I find, in my current state of life, that I just don't have time to properly review things and check things out the way I used to. (Gee, I wonder why?) Catholic Media Review is a place where a few of my favorite Catholic bloggers (Jean from Catholic Fire, Leticia at causa nostrae laetitiae and Cause of Our Joy , Julie at Happy Catholic, Christine at The World IMHO) are focusing on reviewing "each film in the light of Catholic teaching and to warn parents about films that will present a danger to our youth. We also want to encourage people to see those films which we believe will have a positive impact on our society. ...Wouldn't it be wonderful if we as Catholic Christians could make a major impact on the type of films that come out? We have this power simply by purchasing tickets to those films that are of excellent quality. You can count on us to keep you informed."
