Quote of the month: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” -- Aristotle (382-322 B.C.)

  The Hobbit

“The Hobbit”

One of the most enjoyable reading experiences is the book by J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of "The Hobbit".

It is a delightful story about a Hobbit, who lives in a hobbit-hole, named Bilbo Baggins and his adventures. Now, keep in mind, a Hobbit hates adventure! But this one is drawn into an adventure with wizard Gandalf. He runs into "Ents" a tree-form that can communicate. They can talk! He meets with "Gollum" a very different life-form, animal? The story and several subsequent stories are a grand adventure that must be read by all ages.
