I may be one of the few people that I know who has not read The Hobbit. I feel more inclined to now that I have entered the world of Bilbo and Co. through this thoughtful collection. In each entry, there is a quote from The Hobbit along with an entry that builds from this about ways to live one’s life. For example, an entry about fear gave me a good idea of the things that caused Bilbo to worry and showed how he dealt with a time when he had to face a fear. The very first entry is about comfort and invites the reader to think more deeply about what it is like to be in one’s comfort zone and whether or not there are times when this must be left. There are sixty entries in all so lots to contemplate.
I enjoyed this collection and imagine that I will be rereading a number of the entries. You might too.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
Please note that this looks like a title that is being reissued so it can probably be purchased now if you are interested.
