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.

New Secrets of Lord of the Rings Podcast on SQPN

A new podcast reveals the secrets behind J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.

As many of you know, about two weeks ago Tolkien's new book The Children of Hurin was released and has been topping best seller lists since then. In fact, according to Ireland Online, over 90,000 copies are already in print worldwide and Houghton Mifflin has doubled its printing from 250,000 to 550,000.

To coincide with the release of the book and the new online multiplayer game Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, the Star Quest Production Network (SQPN) has created a new podcast called Secrets of Lord of the Rings, hosted by the podcasting priest Fr. Roderick Vonhogen. And since it's an SQPN podcast, you know it's going to be extremely high quality in both production and content.

If you're not familiar with SQPN, you should most definitely check them out. Remember, you don't need an iPod or mp3 player to listen to podcasts. You can listen to them right on your computer.

And when it comes to great podcasts there's SQPN, and then there's everyone else. Fr. Roderick founded SQPN with its flagship podcasts the Catholic Insider and the Daily Breakfast, but the network has since exploded in both popularity and number of podcasts offered. Here are its current offerings, with a few of my comments:
