    Nuns are real people too!

    One does have to wonder if the authors have all of their cards in their decks. However it is a hilarious book! God Bless the good nuns that show us that nuns are real people too! This book throws out all of those baby boomer misconceptions about nuns. This is the kind of book you read a bit in a few free minutes, or sit down for a couple of hours and enjoy yourself. This book is a great way to relax with a little good old fashion Catholic humor.
