Catholic Worker Reading List

Dear Reader,
I am sorry I have neglected this digest for so long.  I am slowly getting back into rhythm of things after our historic election.

As a down payment on the work I know I need to catch up on, I offer you a web version of the CW Book List published in the August/September 2008 issue of the Catholic Worker. The list is intended to be “a list of some of the books that deal with the Catholic Worker Movement.”

My version of the list is posted to WorldCat, a sort of global catalog for libraries and can be found at http://www.worldcat.org/profiles/CatholicWorkerDigest/lists/499609 . In addition to seeing many (though not all) libraries that own these books, you can use the author and subjects to do further exploration in these subjects.  If books on this list are not available in your local library, then ask them to borrow a title or two through Interlibrary Loan.

In all book records, a purchase link to Amazon is provided. In many cases, you can read excerpts of the book online if there is a link labeled “preview.”

If you have read any of the books on this list and are willing to write a short review, please leave a comment to this blog posting. I’ll post the review into the WorldCat.org record so others can see it.

The CW referred users wishing a more complete list should check with the Catholic Worker archives at Marquette University at http://www.marquette.edu/library/collections/archives/day.html. I’ve likely said this before, so take with a grain of salt. I hope to catch up on the digest in the next few weeks. Pray for me that I get this done.
