Dilemma

A question: what does one do when one has a lengthy list of books one has not yet read that one wants to read, and which are ready at hand - from encyclicals to novels to works of the Doctors of the Church (Aquinas) to classical epics to short stories and dramas - but every ounce of one's desire simply yearns to pick up The Lord of the Rings and read it, for the fourth time?

What does one do? Make a compromise and read The Silmarillion?

Read the shortest one first. Then you get one out of the way with little effort.

Whatever Oprah recommends, read that first.
