Okay, don’t get the tar and feathers just yet, I am repentant and planning to rectify my error post-haste. Deep Breath – Here Goes
Okay, I know that’s sacrilegious. And I’m not really sure why I have this lapse in my nerd-ucation. I vaguely recall an older male cousin of mine reading them when I was young, but my first big memory was going to see the midnight showing of the first movie when I was in college. All of my friends (who happened to be male) were going and I got dragged along. I didn’t dare tell them I hadn’t read the books.
And then I never got around to it. With the arrival of the new The Hobbit movie, I now feel like I should return to the source material. That, and a young adult series I’m wrapping up by James Owen (Here, There Be Dragons) whose main character has an interesting connection to Tolkien.
So in deference to the masters I will undertaken Tolkien in the next couple of months. I’ll let you know what I think!
