I love to read – books are like oxygen to me; truly. I can only dream that one day I can have a house that has a library to rival the one in the Beast’s mansion in “Beauty and the Beast”. Seriously people, that library is legit! The way books smell is absolute heaven; fresh ink on perfectly crisp pages, I can honestly tell you sometimes I just hold a new book close and take a deep breath.
|I mean – I wanted the Prince too…but that library – be still my heart.|
In the spirit of the thousands of books I’ve read since I started reading around the age of four (yes, four – ask my Mom and she will vouch for me) I thought I’d share some of my favorite quotes/lines from all those books I’ve spent hours of my life consuming. I soon realized that since I read so much, I’d never narrow it down and you’d be reading this for hours…so I just decided that from time to time, I’d post a series of ten quotes/lines from a select author. I’ll start with one of the master of literature – J.R.R. Tolkien; writer of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Silmarillion, to name a few. Onward….
|Thank you Mr. Tolkien for a fantasy world that is the most brilliant escape. Absolutely incredible.|
So there you have it – my ten favorite quotes/lines written by the legendary J.R.R. Tolkien. They just don’t make writers like Tolkien anymore and if you’ve never read any of his books, you should really get on that because they are delightful. Having said that, if you aren’t a huge reader I’d suggest you start with The Hobbit – since jumping straight in with The Lord of the Rings trilogy might be daunting – that’s a big ol book y’all! Also, The Hobbit actually takes place before the Lord of the Rings, so that helps too! Go get on it…read yourself a good book…or maybe just take a deep breath and smell those wonderful booky smells!
|In conclusion – someone built the library in real life. Hello heaven!|
