I need a really good book!

I have been doing considerably well in reading.

Until last year, for I only read 9 books! 

That is so few compared to the 30 to 50 over books I have read per year in the past years.

I hope for a comeback in 2020.

And?

So far so good! We are only halfway through January and I have already read 6 books, and quite good reads all of them. 

I wanted to keep the ball rolling but I wanted something fun. The 6 books were pretty serious and heavy ones at that. 

So I needed something lighter but it has to be really good. 

What should it be?

I scrolled through the books I have and then voil√†! 

I found it!

The Hobbit
by J.R.R. Tolkien

What could be better than Tolkien's The Hobbit?!

The only problem, though small, is that I don't have the ebook version. 

When I started reading again from year 2011, it was ebooks that got me a back into serious reading. I have never read a print book ever since. And I got so used to ebooks--the convenience, mobility and versatility--that I'd now prefer an ebook anytime. 

Alright, I'm mistaken. Now that I checked into my records, I did read The Hobbit in 2013, a printed copy. 

And so I'm doing it again this year, reading my printed copy of The Hobbit

I'm now at page 28 and I'm loving it.
