I finished my reread of The Hobbit today. Then I discovered that there is a buddy read going on. I guess I was on the same wavelength as the others without even knowing. 😊
Is there a reading schedule or discussion questions? I'd love to chime in.
“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”
I had my husband pick the next book for me to read, so he handed me his well read copy of “The Hobbit”. I know, I know..... I‘m probably one of the few that had not ready any of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s books, but I want to change that. I also think my husband is excited to finally talk to me about them!
Soooooo, I'm a sucker and have decided to bring another (broken) kitty into my home. I've always wanted to name a cat Gimli, and although he's not a short and squat ginger, I've decided it's finally time to use the name. Then, I decided it is time for a reread of Tolkien's masterpieces in honor of the new arrival. Starting with Bilbo's tale. #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #newarrival #adventuresofthegmen #adoptdontshop
I've made a terrible mistake. I decided to reread The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion. The mistake is that I started reading it out loud to Bastet. She enjoyed it (for whatever reason) and now every time I reach for it, she sits down with me for me to continue. She's a bossy thing. #readingaloud #readingtomycat #Tolkienfankitty
Started this a few days ago in honor of my mother this was her favorite book along with the lord of the rings series she used to read to my sister and I when we were kids from the books it is my absolute favorite memory from childhood she has been gone for 4 years her anniversary passed on the 9th of August I love you mom
Lake-town always made my imagination swirl with possibilities when I was little. So close to the lonely mountain...what kind of treasures awaited me there...
2. Hot black tea followed by a chocolate shake
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)
Hey everyone, @TheReadingMermaid is trying to see who would be interested in a group buddy read of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I know I sure as hell am! If you‘re interested, go to her page and let her know on the original post 👍

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.)
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.
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. 🍷😭
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. ❤
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! 🖤
First book of The Reading Rush is done! So far completed the Read a Book with a non-human MC challenge!
Now onto Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!!
