TA Simple House is a Catholic missionary organization currently operating in Washington, DC and Kansas City. We host a Catholic book club each month. This Goodreads group is meant to be an easy way for all of us in both cities to suggest books, read commentaries, and vote each month.
This book club's purpose is to promote the spiritual growth of its members. We choose books that are spiritually focused in the Catholic tradition and true to orthodox Catholic teaching. Sometimes we read new books, but we try to balance our reading out with the classics. We have a three-month rotation of fiction, light non-fiction, and heavy non-fiction. We usually pick books that are less than 400 pages, and often they are around 200 pages. Sometimes we will pick a longer book, with one member having the responsibility to determine suitable selections to cut down on the amount of reading.
The books that are currently on our virtual bookshelf are recommendations from group members. Any member can add books, but since there are a wide number of books that are not suited for our purposes, group editors will be removing such books if they are added to our shelves! You may not add books for consideration during an actual voting process. Books recently added will be considered for the next voting process. Group editors also manage the voting process once every three months....more
