Bloggy friend publishes a book!

Julie at Happy Catholic has published a book!: Happy Catholic: Glimpses of God in everyday life.

The blurb:
Why did it take me so long to see the truth that floods through everyday life? -- from the Introduction.

As she does in her blog, Happy Catholic, Julie Davis taps into quotes ranging from The Simpsons to John Paul II, Battlestar Galactica to Scripture and The Princess Bride and discovers all around her glimpses of God. Her reflections on pithy quotes (Trashing your hotel room is easy, but being a Christian--that's rebellion. -- Alice Cooper) draw back the veil, letting us connect with God in unexpected ways. Intriguing to both Christians and non-Christians alike, this book is also an unexpected source for daily prayer.

Long time readers know I enjoy many of Julie's insights, light touch, and appreciation of humor in the Catholic life, so I'm thrilled for her and looking forward to reading it (when I buy it later this week!).

You can preorder it now, and get a signed copy at her website.
