The Hobbit
The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien
This lavish gift editionof J.R.R. Tolkien's classic features cover art, illustrations, and watercolor paintings by the artist Alan Lee.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.

3. The Shire (it‘s from a real book) 🤣 or Hobbiton, New Zealand (does this count?) or Stonehenge (a real location with a magnificent story from Bernard Cornwall‘s book of the same name (I‘ve been close twice and I have no idea why the rest of my family doesn‘t want to go see it)
4. White
5. Yep

Texreader I know the road you‘re talking about but since I haven‘t been to Stonehenge I didn‘t realize it was close to the road. I‘m still upset the family couldn‘t have taken a few minutes to turn off the highway. It‘s not like I get to go to England very often! 2w

I love this book sososo much. ❤

I started teaching The Fellowship of the Ring last week and I went into full nerd mode while I was explaining Middle Earth and everything to my students, because none of them were even a little familiar with the story! 😱

(Sorry about the glare. Winston decided to make this picture about him and I couldn't deny him.)

LeeRHarry Gorgeous puppy! 3w
JazzFeathers 😂 l know a professor of comparative literature that told me in one of his lessons he realised no one of the students were familiar with The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter or the Chronicles of Narnia. He told me: 'I ended up recounting each story in five minutes. I sounded like a mad man.' 😂😅 3w

I finished this book in style—in a comfy reading nook at a uni library, sippin‘ on booch.

‘Twas a good read. Whimsical and fun. I‘m definitely gonna listen to the audiobook on the Te Araroa.

In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

MrsBabki Did you like this book? I was forced to read it in grade 9. Almost killed me. Maybe because it was a forced reading - I don‘t know. Should I try again as an adult? 3d

Day 3 of the sunburn... I've tried all your remedies. My back and arms are just as bad. So far aloe, acetaminophen, and wine are the only things that seem to be helping. I'm walking with a limp, but unfortunately do not look as cool as an old school pimp.

I have to teach 20 kindergarteners at 8:30 am. Send help. Actually, no. Please send cases of wine. 🍷😭

KarenUK Ouch! Poor you! I hear ya with the wine! My sciatica is playing up right now, and a glass of wine definitely helps! 1mo
Megabooks Oh dear! As a fellow pale person, I can relate. Your cure sounds as good as any I‘ve tried. 💙 1mo
the-woman-who-read-everything My preferred sunburn cure is to put a bottle of lotion in the fridge, then rub the cold lotion on the sunburn. Cooling + moisturizing! 1mo

DaveGreen7777 OUCH! 🥵 Hope you get some relief soon! 😔 1mo
Bookzombie My husband swears by apple cider vinegar. It stings but he says it brings relief after a bit. I like to apply Noxema when I get burned. Hope it passes soon! I burn easily and it‘s awful. 1mo
Redwritinghood That looks painful! Have you tried an over the counter lidocaine cream? That might help with the pain. 1mo
GingerAntics You want to make sure you‘re really well hydrated, almost over hydrated, or it takes longer to heal. 1mo
rretzler Soaking in a cool, not cold tub, should help to take the sting away. Warm shower/bath may make it worse. Treat just like you would any other burn. Aloe is definitely a must, as is ibuprofen. Plus hydration If you have trouble sleeping, put baby powder on your bottom sheet. We had a summer home at a lake in the days when people used Hawaiian Tropic oil to improve their tan instead of lotion with SPF to protect so I‘ve had my share of bad sunburns! 1mo
Skyrimir I had an awful sunburn as a teenager. Like, burn on top of burn. The doctor gave me silver sulfadiazine cream to help with it. It helped, but I did have to have a prescription I think. Lidocaine is also very helpful. Hope you feel better soon! 1mo
Patchshank I don't know if this will be helpful or not. As a kid I got a really bad sunburn and my mom had me put some sort of face cleaner that came in a blue jar on the burn before bed. She also had me sleep on the softest sheets we own. I can't remember the name of the face wash, but maybe someone out there will know? 1mo
TheSpineView If you are using Aloe in a jar or bottle put it in the fridge. Being cold makes it easier to apply on the sensitive burnt skin. 4w
BethM @Skyrimir is right. It sounds silly but go to the dr for the cream. 4w
Rachel.Rencher Thank you everyone! I'll keep trying all your suggestions. Something's gotta make this feel better. 😭 4w

My last book was so bad (Daughter of the Siren Queen) that I had to treat my brain to a classic. So, I'm re-reading The Hobbit for the first time in like 10 years, and I'm going to read the rest of the LotR series for the first time. 🤓

I hate movie tie-in editions, but I bought this box set for Lucas when we were living in our 1st apartment and just building our library. So, I'm a little attached to them now. ❤

kaysworld1 Get tissues ready for the end 😢♥️ 1mo
JazzFeathers Yayyyy!!! I will always support someone reading Tolkien. BTW, if you are a fan, you might want to visit our group #FellowshipOfTolkien We are currently reading The History of The Lord of the Rings (we are halfway through) and plan to reread LotR once we're done 😊 1mo

Loved listening to this fun adventure in my car. I will never tire of the funny lil hobbit Bilbo. He‘s just so fun and humorous and Full of bravery. He inspires me. Also I love listening to an audiobook that the reader sings the songs . So good! Listen to this if you haven‘t! 🖤

DuskAngelReads @TobeyTheScavengerMonk agreed. I‘ve seen pictures of the old cover and this one is a lot nicer imo. I think the new one is different slightly as well. The back cover says something about 30 new pages of artwork, or something. 1mo

To go along with my last post, I made a reading schedule to get through a book per month from today until early November. My partner will be joining me on this hike (his first long-distance hike) and also wants to read the books so we‘re doing a two-person book club.

If anyone wants to read along with us, feel free. 👋

My next long-distance hike will be the Te Araroa in New Zealand. I start in early November which gives me just enough time to finish the series. Seeing as the movies were filmed in NZ, it seems fitting. Also, I‘d been looking for these books at thrift stores for the last few weeks and finally found them all in a box set in pristine condition for only $2.99! 🙌🏽

Day 9. #mountains #LetsTravelJuly

Here are a few literary mountains.

1. The Lonely Mountain from The Hobbit. I would love to explore there!
2. Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings. I would not want to explore there.
3. Ser Gregor Clegane, The Mountain from Game of Thrones. Jerk. Huge jerk.
4. The Mountains Win Again by Blues Traveler. It got in my head while making this post.
