I don't have a spiritual reading recommendation -- I am mostly increasing my prayer activity this Lent through the Liturgy of the Hours -- but I wanted to agree with your enthusiasm for Reed of God. It is a great gift as well -- several of my friends and sisters have loved it as well.

If you haven't checked them out yet, the two books I mentioned in my posts (Spiritual Passages: The Psychology of Spiritual Development, Benedict Groeschel; and Searching for and Maintaining Peace, Fr. Jacques Phillipe) are well worth the read - thoughtful, spiritually edifying and full of Personalist themes.

Another book I found (spiritually) life-altering was The Interior Castle by my very own patron saint, Teresa of Avila.  This book comes in many editions, from a direct Spanish-to-English  translation (for sheer excellence, I like the one from 1946 the best) to a more fluid, modernistic interpretation, but none can take away from Teresa's blunt and hard-won honesty - you can find God within you, if you do your legwork and love like crazy.

Happy reading ~
