The Hobbit

The Hobbit, a story that will continue to go down in history as an enchanting tale. This prequel to 'The Lord of the Rings' is completely amazing!

About: Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort. But wizard Gandalf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse, unknown dangers. Finally, it is Bilbo-alone and unaided-who has to confront the great dragon Saug, the terror of an entire countryside...

-There is nothing in this book that would prevent me from picking it up. This story was originally told and written for J.R.R. Tolkiens kids, but became a story I think all of us would love.

Have any questions or comments? I would love to answer and hear them.

The Best Valentine Blog Post

The Best Valentines Day Post! This is the post that convinced me that Valentines day was more than 'Singles Awareness Day'. Because you are never single and alone when you have God.

Four Days

Hello, all my dear readers. I thought I'd warn you, this time, that I will not be on blogger for a few days. I will be gone due to a speech tournament that I will be going to. I've very excited about it and will be back late Saturday night. I promise I will begin posting again on Monday. Look out for a fun new bunch of posts on:
-Bad Guys
-The Hobbit (a book review)
-Redwall (another book review)
-Side character do's and don'ts

So farewell, and I'll be back on Saturday.

Goodbye Brain Jacques

Brain Jacques died February 5, 2011

Yes, Brain Jacques, one the most amazing children's authors, has died.
I picked up 'Redwall' (the first book I read of his) only a year ago.
But through those characters I feel I've known the author forever.
Goodbye Brain Jacques, you will be greatly missed, and remembered forever.

Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us." - B.J.
