The Hobbit Rides Again

Son Number One has gotten a sudden urge to start reading. Since this is something that I want to encourage I've gone out and bought him a couple of books in the last week or so. He's rapidly reading through The Bartimeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud. However, since I was a bit slow in finding a copy of the third book, he's grabbed my ratty old copy of The Hobbit off the shelf. I have to think about it but I think this will be the fifth time that copy has been read in the almost thirty years since I got it. Well, maybe sixth. Anyhow, it goes to prove that great books can always earn their spot on the shelf of you life.
