A book is a literary compass that has the potential to direct our thoughts and actions:

"Everything we read stimulates our mind to think, and what we think determines what we desire, and desires are the seedbed of our actions. Given this iron law of human nature--from reading to thinking, to desiring, to acting--we are shaping our destiny by the ideas we choose to have enter our minds through print." - Fr. John Hardon, S.J., The Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan

Welcome to my own personal exploration of life through reading the great books of the world.

The Great Conversation

I've finished How to Think About the Great Ideas by Mortimer Adler, and am moving on to Herodotus' Histories. I recently joined the Great Conversation discussion group and that's the next title on their list. The Great Conversation is following the ten year reading plan suggested in the first volume of Britannica's Great Books of the Western World.

If you're interested in the Great Books you should click on over to The Great Conversation and join in the discussion.
