To do that ... I happen to write!

There and back again!

"If anything had to be done, it would have to be done by Mr. Baggins, alone and unaided"
- J.R.R. Tolkien, Hobbit

After you have racked up a decent collection of 20 odd books in your small shelf or library, whatever you might want to call it: it feels great to pick up a random book, at a random moment, say just before sleeping, flip pages, read some of the lines you had underlined when reading it for the first time, land at a perfect quote which mirrors your momentary thoughts or makes you remember something you were thinking about, brings a smile or the associated emotion on your face; after which you snuggle in the bed and sleep a night of peace...

"One day nosing and wandering about, Bilbo discovered a very interesting thing..."

And okay, the last one for the day

"No dragon can resist the fascination of riddling talk and of wasting time trying to understand it" :D


  1. I picked up The Hobbit again off my bookshelf, after reading your post.

    "you don't know everything, O Smaug the Mighty," said he. "Not gold alone brought us hither."


  2. Love the way the quotes create a story in themselves. The last line sums it all up so aptly. :)

  3. Waiting for the Hobbit movie now :)
