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.
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."
