Of course I am talking about The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien. This book put me back into the reading world after a long hiatus. As a kid, I read a pile of books. Every year for Christmas we got books as gifts and I never lacked having a full bookshelf. Then as a teen, I only read the required materials for school (if I even did that). Then when I was about to ship off to college, my mom and I were in a bookstore and she said I would probably like this book. So I picked it up and gave it a try. I have never in my life, loved a story as much as this, and soon became a quick fan. I certainly followed up with the Lord of the Rings trilogy and now they have a special display place on the bookshelf.
So, in honor of the movie The Hobbit coming out this December, I am once again reading JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Yes, I realize this just upped my geek status, but a good book, is just that – a great adventure. So anyone who needs an adventure, join the thousands of people who have taken this beloved story into their hearts and take a journey.
