Hello, friends, and happy Friday!
It’s First-Line Friday! 🙂 Since it’s a short month, we’re featuring “short books,” either in length or content or something else.
Mine is something else. 🙂
I’m featuring The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Have you read it? It is so much fun – such a delight – and adds depth to The Lord of the Rings. The “small” part of this selection is, of course, the hobbit himself. 🙂
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
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.
(This book has been in my mind lately because, at a nearby library, I recently discovered the *unabridged* – that’s important to me! 🙂 – audio version of The Lord of the Rings, performed/read by a fantastic actor Rob Inglis. This beautiful story has accompanied me for the past few weeks on the very long roads of the rural area in which I live – an area where “the roads go ever on and on.” I highly recommend it!)
What are you reading this week, friends? Or is there a “short” book whose first line you’d like to share?
Grace and peace,
