*Although I am linking to Amazon, I am doing so hesitantly because their founder supports things that go against the teachings of the Catholic Church. If you are interested in any of the books that I list, please consider getting them from your local library or purchasing them from an ethical/moral bookstore. If I stop providing links, you know why.
