As you may have picked up from my title for this post, I have a small confession to make: I did not finish any books over the last two weeks. In fact, I have only read about a hundred and fifty pages. Which is somewhat unusual for me, I think. If you are wondering precisely what book, it is the first Lord of the Rings book, The Fellowship of the Ring, by J. R. R. Tolkien. I was not sure if I was going to like these books or not, although I was definitely excited to read them - and so far, I am enjoying them.
I don't know if I will write a review of this book once I have finished it or not, just because it seems to me to be a difficult book for reviewing. As of where I am at though, if you are considering reading the first Lord of the Rings book, my advice is to just do it - if you aren't liking it that much just put it down, there is no damage done.
I will also admit that I have a few friends who have read the series before, and it took them somewhere between a month to a month and a half to read the first book - so, of course, I had always thought to myself, "If and when I read that book I will definitely read it in two weeks." Well, my time frame is up, and from my page count I am nowhere near finished. I actually think I might take more time than my friends did to read it, but that is alright, because I am enjoying it.
But yes, let's go on to other things.
Okay, that teaches me a lesson. I had a whole bunch of ideas for what to talk about in this post and I totally forgot it all at the mere mention of The Thing That Shall Not Be Named.
Oh well. I feel like I have had a productive morning so far, having written all of this before even eating my breakfast.
So I am off, and will talk to all of you soon!
Hope you had (and will have) a good week,
