Happy Friday Folks! Got any big book plans for the weekend?
This weekend I’ll be working on The Hobbit: or There and Back Again by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Hobbit: or There and Back Again by J.R.R. Tolkien
Release Date: 1999-09
J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies worldwide and established itself as a modern classic.
So how bout it, what are YOU reading this weekend?
