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!”
