The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Hobbit: Or There And Back Again - J.R.R. Tolkien - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Hobbit:

Bilbo's adventure to find a treasure that dwarves and a wizard convinced him he wanted.

My favorite JRR Tolkien quote from the book:

"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What do you treasure?

Have you ever wanted to go on an epic journey?

My review of The Hobbit:

Nostalgia alert!

A forever-favorite tale.

Riddles, Rhymes, and lots of songs.
