The Library

Now that I have a little more time on my hands, I decided to try and get as much as I can completed on the BBC Top 100 list. I've currently just finished 79/100 and having just about exhausted our local library's supply of the list, decided to order a steady stream of books on line. Of course nothing in life is simple. I ordered the Lord Of The Rings in three parts and of course the last book came first. I went up to the local library yesterday to pick up my ordered books, only to find that the whole place had gone self service and you now had to use an ATM to get the books in and out. Talk about making things harder than they need to be!
Anyways I'm currently enjoying A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute and hopefully should get this finished within the next couple of days. Then onto The Pillars Of The Earth by Ken Follett and hopefully by the time that I've finished those, The Fellowship Of The Ring may have turned up. Here's hoping...

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is such a great read. I can't even begin to think how many times I have read them, but every and every time was as good as the first. So many characters and so many intertwined storylines. Happy reading :)

I think I tried to read The Lord Of The Rings too early (tried when I was about 10/11)so it put me off trying to read it again until I saw the films, which funnily enough was the first task that I ever completed all those years ago!
