Memes: Mailbox Monday AND Teaser Tuesdays

MAILBOX MONDAY. This meme is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Last Monday, I said I bought three novels by Suzanne Brockmann in her Troubleshooters Series and two had arrived from The Book Depository. A few days later within the same week, I received the third book, Over the Edge.

Julia, a big fan of this series, will be reading the books with me! I can't wait!


I'm currently reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. This is for the LOTR read-along I'm participating in, and will be re-reading the other three books in the LOTR series in the next three months. Here's the teaser from page 1:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat; it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
