Reading the Hobbit..
and readying the family for a one week stay in Washington DC. Today I got the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. To think that the Hobbit was written in 1937! We've had the films for a few years now and I finally 'got around to' getting the books. I read the first chapter to my ten year old and then told him, sorry, I'm going to finish this off first, you'll get second dibs.
The Hobbit- J.R.R. Tolkien
He finished reading the Golden Compass and started with the Subtle Knife but somehow isn't that much into the second book.
The Golden Compass - Phillip Pullman
Reading a book that gets your juices going is a great feeling. I used to have it with murder mystery books and I had to finish it, even if it took me well into reading till 3 or 4 am in the morning (naturally usually on weekends)..
What are you currently reading and what book is the kind that keeps you up late??
Also, since we'll be in Washington next week, I'll be so lucky to finally meet one of my bloggers against torture-compadre; Mash from Docstrangelove. My family will be having lunch at his house with his family and I'm guessing we'll have some great Bangladeshi dishes..(big scoops or raita for me please, I'm pretty pathetic with spicy stuff but my dh can make up for that)..
Anyhow, I'm in and out of checking out blogs and probably will try to post more about the trip next week if we have internet access. I expect that at least Mash will have some pics to show from our luncheon..how fun.. I'm looking forward to the trip AND meeting Mash!
