    Useful and informative for daily devotion to join with the prayers of the saints throughout history, appealing in that it is ordered by date, rather than alphabetical by saint,

    I have yet to read any content BECAUSE The only links are for each saint name, but the names are not alphabetized nor sorted by date, so first you have to scan through hundreds of names to find it The only way to avoid searching through 14 pages of names is to already know the saint s date, and then employ the by guess and by golly leapfrog method via Kindle s location feature to get there Same is true if you want to access the current calendar day.From what I have read on the Saint of the Day website, I feel sure the information in the ebook is interesting and valuable, but what s the point if you can t get to it Rudimentary navigation is basic for an ebook, so such an oversight is frustrating especially at this price The publishers have done themselves and their potential customers a disservice by not taking into consideration the basic differences between a print book and a digital book.This ebook should be temporarily withdrawn and properly mapped Until then, I suggest a potential buyer use the Saint of the Day website for free, where, by the way, the saint names are alphabetized and sorted by date.

    I look forward to reading the day s saint each night Informative and interesting My only complaint is that too many days do not have a saint.

    This book really gives you so much information on each Saint than any book I own So much insight, I can t stop reading without going ahead 2 or 3 days Saints have gone through so much and their faith has made them see past the moment into what God s plan is So much inspiration.
