The Slow Read Tag

There is a tag going around in BookTube called The Slow Read Tag. I have been thinking of doing this tag for a video. This morning I gathered randomly some of books I could show in such a video. Here is a list of those books for The Slow Read Tag-

The Holy Bible

'The Collected Works of St. John of the Cross' translated by Kieran Kavanaugh O.C.D. & Otilio Rodriguez

'Carthusian Spirituality: The Writings Of Hugh Of Balma And Guigo De Ponte' [The Classics Of Western Spirituality]

'The Cloud of Unknowing' author unknown 13th century English monk

'John Ruusbroec: The Spiritual Espousals And Other Works' [The Classic of Western Spirituality]

One is limit oneself to five books for the Slow Read Tag. I could have listed a ton more, but refrained myself. These are some of the other books I could have mentioned in this BookTube video-

'Into The Silent Land: A Guide to the Christian Practice of Contemplation' by Martin Laird

'A Sunlit Absence: Silence, Awareness, and Contemplation' by Martin Laird

So it is now in the death flow 7:35 AM Friday morning. I will close to go read my books and wait out the day. Carol left this morning to after breakfast with her niece Deb and her younger brother Cal.
