The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

Now Reading: J. R. R. Tolkien – The Hobbit

the-hobbit-e1337024282596I’ve put off reading this book for quite a while now, especially because I know that once I read it I’ll want to read the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and there’s no way that I can read all 3 books in 9 days to keep on track with my challenge! I’d give it a go, but even I can’t read that fast and still understand what’s going on!

My best friend Abi is a massive LOTR fan (and has been since I met her about 10 years ago), and with the film coming out later this year, I’ve booked the day off work to go see it with her. I hate seeing a film before I’ve read the book because I love to have my own ideas about how a person looks and make my own feelings of a place before my head is filled with the director’s version and I can’t get rid of it (as has happened with books like Harry Potter).

So I guess now is as good a time as any to read it, and I have Abi’s assurance that I’ll love it! I hope so, and you never know, my next post may be one telling you all that I’ve inadvisedly started reading The Fellowship of the Ring…
