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.

Who is Hurin, Anyway, and How Many Children Did He Have?

Want Tolkien's new book, Children of Hurin, but not sure who Hurin is? Visit The Encyclopedia of Arda, a reference guide to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. It's a fantastic resource, a real must-see for all Tolkien devotees.

By the way, you'll discover several different entries for Hurin, but this one is the one you want. (He had three children.)
