The Church maintained an index of banned books for a long time, until it got to be a "must read for Satanists" list. Has the Church (or affiliated bodies) ever maintained a list of good books.
Here's what I know so far:
- I know of the Catholic Library Association's book award (but that's just one Children's book per year)
- there's the imprimatur and nihil obstat, but I don't think they keep a categorized list and I don't think it generally includes fiction.
- The USCCB does movie ratings, but not book reviews as far as I know.
- Focus on the Family does book reviews, but it's not Catholic.
