Tolstoy & Dostoevsky

Well, I just bought a couple of more books on e-bay. My next Tolstoy attempt will be War & Peace. First though, I will read Dostoevsky’s Brothers Karamazov. While I wait for them to come in the mail, I have now returned to my Favorite book.

It Begins like this:

“When Mr. Bilbo Baggins of Bag End announced that he would shortly be celebrating his eleventy-first birthday with a party of special magnificence, there was much talk and excitement in Hobbiton” (Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien)

It just grabs you and says “READ ME!”

    Yay! Lord of the Rings…good stuff. You inspire me with your intellectual readings, I just might have to follow suit 🙂

    Just because I pretend 🙂 I know what is going on in these books does not really mean anything ….Keep me posted on what your up to reading.

    That is one of my favourite books. Although I do like the Hobbit a bit more.
