On my Christmas break bookshelf

It always breaks my heart to observe how little reading I get done during each school semester (I mean, reading outside of my classes). Hurray for a return to reading for one's self!!
What I'm munching on right now:

The Power and the Glory by Graham Green
A collection by Flannery O'Connor including Wise Blood, The Violent Bear it Away, and Everything That Rises Must Converge
That Hideous Strength by C. S. Lewis
The Story of a Soul by Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
So yeah, a bunch of Catholic giants...and then Lewis. But hey, Lewis was about as Catholic as a Protestant can get, after all ;)

I just found

an ENTIRE WEBSITE devoted to the story of Cupid and Psyche in art.

I'm going to have to investigate this further... :)

By the way, the image in my header is none other than Edward Burne-Jones' Cupid Finding Psyche, from his cycle devoted to the ancient Greek myth!
