Book Blogger Hop December 21st - December 27th: There Are Twenty-Nine Knuts in a Sickle

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books has restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another. The hop is currently traveling about the blogosphere and is being hosted by Tea Time With Marce. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them. A complete explanation of the history and the rules of the Hop can be found here.

This week Jen asks: What book were you determined to read this year and you still didn't pick up? Is it at least on your bookshelf or e-reader?

I had intended to do a reread of The Hobbit and all three volumes of The Lord of the Rings this year, but I just never got to them. I've read them before, several times in fact. But with the first of Peter Jackson's three Hobbit movies out this year, I figured that this was an opportune time for a reread of that volume. And because the The Lord of the Rings won the International Fantasy Award in 1957, and I am coming to the end of my project to read all of the International Fantasy Award winners, that would be a natural follow-on to rereading The Hobbit. I didn't get to them this year, and I probably won't in the short time left in the year, but they are still all on my shelf (and probably always will be) and I will certainly get to them early next year.

  1. I've considered reading those books. I think I read one and I know I saw one movie (can't remember the name of it though.) Good Luck completing your goals. Happy Holidays!

  2. Hobbit is every where on the blog due to the movie. I don't reread no matter how much I love a book.

    Thanks for participating in the hop.

  3. @Pat @ Post for Now: They are worth reading for any fantasy fan. They form, in large part, the foundation of modern fantasy fiction.

  4. @Marce: I reread a handful of books, although not very often as I have so many unread books in my house.
