Anonymous asked: if you have one favourite book, what is it?
It took me around a half hour to pick out just one book.. I mean there’s so many that I love! But after writing and back spacing several times, I’ve realised my all time favorite-Lord of the Rings by Tolkien. I’ve read it a total of about 11 times for the past 3 years, ever since I was 12. My uncle gave it to me for Christmas when I was 10, and he told me only to read it after I was done the hobbit, and the hobbit was simply just a dull book, so it took me the longest time. After a year and a half, I actually finished the Hobbit ( i know longest time it took me to read a book), I became quite hesitant to read The lord of the rings because it’s by the same author. Some time later when I had just turned 12, My uncle visited, and asked me if I had read his books. I told him how boring the Hobbit was, and I didn’t want to read anymore by the author. He laughed and told me he only wanted me to read the Hobbit for the back story and so Lord of the rings will be much better. So I did, and needless to say- My uncle was quite right, and I finished it that night at 2:00 am.
Such a splendid book, if you havn’t read it, I encourage you.

4. Fish on a one-legged table, man sits near the table on a stool, cat gets the bones.
5. Sun on daisies in a field
Never put riddles in the Hobbit tag, the Hobbit geeks will get there.
Dear lord, I am so proud <3 I guess so, either way, I’m so happy someone actually remembered them all!
1. What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?
2. This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.
3. Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.
4. No-legs lay on one-leg,
two legs sat near on three legs,
four legs got some.
5. An eye in a blue face
Saw an eye in a green face.
‘That eye is like to this eye’
Said the first eye,
‘But in low place
Not in high place.’
6. Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking
7. It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.
8. A box without hinges, key or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.
9. Voiceless it cries,
If someone gets all of these right, I’ll most likely cry with joy, and give you a totally awesome shout out (if anyone caught on to that avpm reference, you’re cool).
Anonymous asked: why do you love reading so much?
The question actually is, why wouldn’t I love reading? Reading enables any person to become someone else, someone greater, and to take on the life of the protagonist of that book. Reading is simply a joy to me, and makes me feel emotions and feelings that don’t belong in my brain. It’s a strange concept, but being able to read truly is such a beautiful thing, and in a way- a blessing. Reading takes you places you’ve never gone before, and would never be able to go anyways, like Hogwarts or the Middle Earth. I don’t understand why so little people have discovered the wonders and magic that lay between the covers of books. It’s a shame people don’t appreciate it to its full potential.
