The Hobbit

Chloe is reading “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien.  Enthusiastically.  “It’s REALLY good!” she just exclaimed.  I’m impressed.  I don’t think you could have paid me enough to read that book when I was a teenager, let alone at 9 years old.

But reading it, she is.  She likes the fantasy genre – and  takes after her Papa in that respect.  When I told her that the “Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy was magical, her face lit up.  More DVDs to add to the Netflix queue.

We’ll see if she actually finishes the book – that will be the true test.  However, considering she’s read the Harry Potter series three times and counting, I guess Tolkien would be a logical next step.

Her love of reading is pretty incredible.  I hope it lasts forever.
