Sundays in Bed With… is a meme that dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
The weekend is almost over and it’s a busy one over here. Spent the day hanging out with family yesterday and running errands today. It’s been a busy but fun weekend! Now, I’m planning on spending the evening reading. I’ve recently started Jade City by Fonda Lee and it’s quite the ride already! But the book I’ll be talking about in today’s post is a re-read that I recently picked back up.
That being said, let’s get to the post!
My Sunday Read Is…
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein
My husband and I recently picked up a beautiful illustrated copy of this classic novel. We picked it up specifically because we recently watched all of the Lord of the Rings movies and my 8 year old son was enraptured. So we thought he would love getting more of the world through The Hobbit! Now, it’s our evening read as we’re winding down for the day. We just started it yesterday and he seems to be loving it so far! I’m enjoying revisiting this story with my kiddo.
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.
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937. Now recognized as a timeless classic, this introduction to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent.
