Today i'm posting my first contribution to the weekly meme Teaser Tuesday, where all of us book bloggers get together to try and encourage you guys to read some fantastic books. Basically, to participate all you have to do is grab a copy of your latest book, open a random page and pick any quote you like. You can post two of these 'teasers', although of course please try to avoid massive spoilers!
So, i am currently rereading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, something i'm sure the vast majority of people have already read and adored. For my two teasers i've picked:
'We shall see, we shall see!' he said, 'and I think I have earned already some of your dragon-gold - when you have got it.' (Page 106)
'Thief, thief, thief! Baggins! We hates it, we hates it, we hates it for ever!' (Page 81)
This is the cover of the book i was given, it's a copy of an illustration done by Tolkien himself of Smaug.
So what are you reading this fine tuesday? Leave a comment and let me know!
