It's Monday! What Are you Reading? (13-12-'10)

undefinedIt’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. This event is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.

I am currently reading The Return of The King. My original plan is to read 1 book of The Lord of The Rings per year. I have read The Fellowship of The Rings Last year and just finished The Two Towers, but it turns out that separating The Two Towers from The Return of The King is impossible. I grabbed the book straight away once I finished The Two Towers.

This is my 4thtime reading The Lord of The Rings series. For me, TLoTR is the best series ever created. I love everything about it.

I will reread The Hobbits when the movie is about to be released.

I have just Finished reading The Two Towers (as I already said before). This book is my favorite of all 3 because it has both action and noble words.

I took some time to write a comparison of the book and the movie. There are a lot differences, some are good some are bad.

For future read. I'm not sure which one to read first. I'm planning to finish books I have left untouched for months. Those books are StainedGlass Elegies by Shusaku Endo and Dark House by Gary Crew. Both books are collection of short stories.

So... What are you reading now?

I haven't ever read these Lord of the Rings books, but I'm very curious. Thanks for visiting my blog.

You asked about the picture in my background; it is an inn that lies between Berlin and Prague, and my son took the photo. He stayed there once. It is the same picture as the header.

The Hobbit is one of my favorite books, but I've never read Lord of the Rings. Enjoy!

I haven't read the Lord of the Rings in a couple of years ... now I'm itching to again ... I love those books and the Hobbit. :)

It has been a long time since I've read LOTR. I like them, but for some reason could never get through the Hobbit. Maybe when the movie comes out I'll give it another chance.

Great pick on the Tolkein books! I actually took a class on these books in High School!
