April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Realistically, what more could be said about The Hobbit that hasn't been said before? J.R.R. Tolkien's classic introduction to Middle-Earth and the humans, hobbits, elves, magicians and every other sort of magical creature that inhabits it. A fun story that starts out humbly and slowly becomes something grander than what it seems should be possible, much like the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.
