Welcome to the New Year, and, of course, the start of this year’s 7 Quick Takes. Join Catholic bloggers around the world as we sum up our weeks. Hosted by This Ain’t the Lyceum. (Look at the shiny new logo… *strokes logo*)
#1. I’m back in Reading, and that’s exciting, even though nothing much has happened – and I’ve only got the academic term to look forward to.

#7. I like the mysterious elements in some of the chapters, though:
