Thanks to everyone who participated in our 30 day appeal in which we asked the readers of this blog and Amy's Open Book to consider buying one copy of her excellent book Here. Now. A Catholic Guide to the Good Life.and of my How To Get The Most Out Of The Eucharist on a number of those days you were able to push both books to the top of Amazon's Catholic bestseller's list!

We appreciate all those who have ordered the books through their local bookstores, or from Our Sunday Visitor directly. The boost in sales has been noted by the publisher.

So far we can only track sales made through Amazon and based on those figures we will sending $269.85 to Food for the Poor. I am still hoping and praying that we can raise that number to $2,000 by the end of September when we will receive royalty payments and a quarterly statement from Amazon. So continue to order books, any books using a link from this or Amy's page and you will be contributing to this effort!

Thanks a billion for all that you have done and we ask for you continued support by recommending the books to your pastor, DRE, RCIA leader, friends (both Catholic and non-Catholic). THANK YOU!
