The Hobbit

The Hobbit By: J.R.R. Tolkien

I first started to read this when I was waiting for the 5th book of Harry Potter on Barnes and nobles one of many midnight parties. This may shock some of you because The Hobbit is one that is read in school. I don't know why I didn't read it there. I will say that when I first read it it did take me awhile to get into it but once I did I couldn't put it down. This is one of my favorite books and I love how it starts into the Lord of the Rings series with characters that I already knew, it was like being reunited with old friends. This was a book that I have been listening to on audio while I drive to work and while I sit at my computer. Some listen to music...I listen to books. :) I think this is a classic that everyone should read at least once in their lives. This is a great book that I love to pick up again and I know I already said this but I really mean it. Picking up this book is like stepping into a different world, time and place and is like reuniting with old friends and reliving adventures. :) one of the many reasons I love books.

I accidentally bought an illustrated edition ( written comic book style) and am trying to read it. It's kind of hard to get through but I guess I'll stick with it!
