Second breakfasts, big hairy feet, & hearts too big for their small bodies.
A call to adventure, a curiosity unbound, and a courage unmeasured.
Dragons know the sting of his blade.
Dwarves know the depth of his spirit.
Many names, many faces from Bilbo to Frodo to Sam and more.
A precious book past from generation to generation,
Held more value than any one ring.
The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien is the book that's held my heart for over two decades. The first book that captured my love of fantasy in its grasp and led me to read the next generation of hobbits over the course of three years. (I was only nine years old when I started the Lord of the Rings trilogy.) To this day, I cannot enter a bookstore without seeking its pages. I possess four different editions of Tolkien's books and if the Apocalypse happened tomorrow, they'd be stashed into my "go" bag.
