New Books in My Masonic Reading Pile

After almost three non-stop months of road trips, I am finally able to curl up with an accumulating heap of books that have been arriving on the doorstep or that I picked up on the road. Alice has just been stacking the boxes in the corner, and I had my own little unpacking hootenanny this afternoon.

Among them are:

Guess At The Rest: Cracking The Hogarth Code by Elisabeth Soulier-Détis

The Question of Freemasonry and the Founding Fathers by David Barton

The Beauty and Glory of the Day: A Masonic Devotional by Walter William Melnyk

Into Masonic Light by Douglas Wood and Dimitar Mavrov

Masonic Village at Elizabethtown 1910-2010 edited by Lindsay A. de Bien

Observing the Craft: The Pursuit of Excellence in Masonic Labour and Observance by Andrew Hammer

The Vatican Secret Archives by VDH Books

Memorize the Faith (And Most Anything Else): Using the Methods of the Great Catholic Medieval Memory Masters by Kevin Vost


  1. Have fun with the Barton book. I'd be very interested in a review once you finish it.

  2. It seems that the number of new books on Freemasonry has dwindled compared to the time after the Da vinci Code was released.

    I'm looking forward to reading some new material
