This year I read a few spiritual books during Lent (taking a break from my usual reading of history). I really enjoyed this Lenten reading (On Being Catholic and Catholicism and Fundamentalism).
As we approach Advent, does anyone have some good Advent reading they can suggest? Something that actually releates to the season would be nice, but I might opt for Theology and Sanity or The Imitation of Christ as they both appear to be popular in this group.

Why don't you try my book 'Gardening with God in Advent and Christmastide: Light in Darkness' published by Continuum Burns & Oates. It's available from several booksellers on the Net. If you Google my name 'Jane Mossendew' they'll all come up. choose a plant or tree for each day and there's a meditation on its relevance to the liturgy Divine Office as well as Mass. Each day concludes with Intercessions on related matter to the entry and a list of suggestions for other reading including Biblical ones. One good thing is as it's daily you can pick and choose and I hope glean spiritual sustenance in variety of ways. All the traditional Christmas plants crop up somewhere or other and I give the folk lore and history of each one too. all the saints days are included as well
You don't have to be a gardener to enjoy the book. There's another one for Lent and a third which goes from Easter Morning to St Alponsus de Liguori on Aug. 1st. I'm wrting the 4th at the moment which will end on St. Andrew's Day for the Saints and on the last week of Ordinary Time for the main Church cycle.
I'm responding to your posting not because my primary aim is to sell you my book but because my spiritual director has long been convincing me that these books are my special apostolate.
Pax tecum and in everything we do, to God be the glory,
