Q: What book do you think everyone should read? If you could gift the entire population with one book?


WHAT?! I have to pick only ONE book?!! How can I possibly pick just one book? *stops freaking out and takes a deep breath* Okay, let me think...The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings....no not The Lord of the Rings, that was a trilogy, that can't count...Ender's Game, A Wrinkle in Time, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, Wizard of Oz, Wicked....
How can I pick? Its like expecting me to choose which child to save if the house was burning down!
Okay, since I just watched the movie, and its such an awesome book....I'll pick....


And if you haven't seen the trailer for the first of the movies (yes, Peter Jackson made three movies out of the book):

  2. I love your blog design! <3

    I haven't read the Hobbit nor the Lord of the rings book but I do have them on my shelf. It's sort of intimidating for me to read these books, hehe

    Thanks for stopping by! Followed you back :)

  8. I actually haven't read any of the Lord of the Rings books, including the Hobbit. Hopefully I can read it soon so that I can see the movie and actually understand it! Great pick. I'm a new follower. :)

  10. I can't wait to see the movie! But.. I have read the book and it didn't blow me away. I guess his style isn't my thing.

  12. Hi Kristin!
    (gasp! A Wrinkle in Time!) I've had The Hobbit on my shelf for ages, and read it once in elementary school (skimmed it, more likely). With all the hype about the film, I've become more anxious to read it! I'm a bit disappointed in Peter Jackson: how can he possibly make three films over one, small book? I've read several reviews where the viewer complained about major additions and changes. That's why it's crucial to read the book first! Yet...with LOtR, the films helped me understand the book...I'm torn!

    Thanks so much for stopping by Pages!

    P.S. Since you've just seen the film, how was it?

    1. Kirthi, thanks for stopping by! Oh. my. gosh. The movie was awesome....no, awesome is too gentle a word...heart-stopping-world-rending-soul-shattering...yes, it was...mmmm...great! It was another LotR, just at that wonderful caliber!

      I was disappointed as well that there are three movies, but then I saw the movie....the party itself is like 10 minutes long...at least, but its hilarious!

      My favorite characters in the book were Fili and Kili, and they're on my computer desktop now. Great portrayal :).

    1. Tolkien was the only fantasy author in my uncle's humungous (1000+ books, no lie) library that included anything from education to history and religion.
