Book Gems

I am currently reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and thoroughly enjoying it.  Tolkien was an excellent storyteller and I feel like I’m on the adventure with Bilbo, Gandalf and the dwarves! An interesting thing I learnt this week is that Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa and lived there on a farm until his family returned to England when he was 3. Anyway, here’s this week’s book gem.

“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something….You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.” – J.R.R. Tolkien (The Hobbit)
