    You definitely remind me of Secret Agent Man.

  2. I found your blog while looking for something else entirely, but I noticed the list of publishers. I thought you might want to add Once and Future Books to that, since our first project is the republication of the complete unabridged fiction of Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson. We’ve got about half of it available on the web site, http://www.benson-unabridged.com

    Hello – I am co-chair of the fundraising committee for my son’s school – Catholic School – St. Liborius in Crete and Steger, Illinois. Our committee is responsible for raising $80,000 this year to meet a big portion of our school’s budget. In order to help accomplish this, we hold a raffle. The tickets cost $100 – only 600 maximum will be sold. The grand prize is $10,000. There are 15 cash prizes, plus at least 20 other merchant donated prizes. This is our school’s most important fundraiser as virtually all of the proceeds from ticket sales stay at our school.

    Please contribute to the faith based education of some of America’s youth by purchasing a ticket – and maybe you will be the big winner of $10,000.

    Please send checks payable to St. Liborius, 24201 S Kings Road, Crete, IL 60417

    We will promptly return your valuable raffle ticket to you!!!

    Thank you very much for your time and consideration!!!

    I am looking for a copy of “Selected Letters of St. Francis de Sales” edited in 1960 by Elisabeth Stopp. Who knows if the person to whom I loaned my treasured copy (but now forget the nameof the borrower) may read this and moved to repentance this Lent may return it…! As this is unlikely is there any unwanted copy of the book available for sale at a reasonable price?

    I found this through your comment on WDTPRS regarding the Breviary.

    I just made an order a couple days ago from Aquinas and More. They’ve got an amazing selection. Thanks for such a helpful Catholic online bookstore. I will probably get around to buying some 1962-era books in the future.

    Benedicite.

    I am hoping that someone may know if there is a published list of theaters that will be showing Bella in the western suburbs of Chicago, especially Bloomingdale, St.Charles, West Chicago, Naperville areas? God Bless and thank you

  10. A friend sent me your link and I am honored and blessed to have my book, The Catholic Home:Celebrations and Traditions, featured on your Thanksgiving Day page. I hope you stock (and encourage) readers to buy the paperback edition. It has more content and an index.

    I also want to mention Come to the Table: A Catholic Passover Seder, which I created Plowshares Publishing to publish. http://www.plowsharespublishing.com. The book is gaining wide acceptance for parish and home use. Thanks be to God! Please include Plowshares Publishing on your list of Catholic publishers.

    Blessings to you for all that you are doing to support Catholic writing and publishing.

    Hey Ian,

    Here is a story about more Chinese sweat shops that you probably want to read.

    I couldn’t agree with you more on your comments about buying from your local Catholic bookstore. We opened a store in Hastings, MN about 3 years ago and I was here on my computer trying to find a good way to market it for sale. We just can’t afford to keep paying the interest on the money we borrowed to get it going anymore. It is one of those situations where it is doing to well and has enough people who appreciate it to much to just close it, but not well enough for us to afford it anymore. It is frustrating to have to try to compete with Amazon or the large chain stores or for that matter even some of the Catholic publishers who will sell directly to the parishes that your trying to develop a relationship with. Anyhow, keep encouraging people to buy from us small folks who have their best interests in mind and please keep us in your prayers that we can find a faithfull Catholic to buy our store.

    God Bless!

    Ian,

    Got your Plaxo email, but I dont use Plaxo. I think someone else put me on there years ago and it invited me and I clicked to check it out.

    I am on LinkedIn, however.
