Like reading? Why not tackle some of Pope Francis' favourite books?

Looking for something new to read to make the rest of this season of Lent a spiritually enriching and productive one? Or are you just looking for a good book? In either case, you may want to consult the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church, to find out what books have influenced his spiritual life, inspired and simply entertained him. For Pope Francis, a former literature professor who never watches television, books have been and continue to be an important part of his life's journey. Fortunately, you don’t need a private audience with Pope Francis to get his reading recommendations. The Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera has published an 11-volume series of the pope’s favorite books. The website Favobook.com has also gone through his speeches, interviews, and his writing, to help us come up with this tidy 10-booklist of Pope Francis’ recommended reading which will take you well beyond Lent.
