~Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me each month and share what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Post your photo(s) on your blog or on Instagram (#yarnalong) and then share a link below to either your blog or Instagram post!~ (this post contains affiliate links.)
A couple of months ago I had this idea that Keats, Gabe, and I should read The Fellowship of the Ring together. (Seth has read the trilogy multiple times already.) I don’t typically read fantasy (ever) but this is one of those series that is so widely read and loved, that I want to read it too. I would have started with The Hobbit, but Keats and Gabe have already read that. I may read The Hobbit aloud to my younger kids this winter. Anyway, between us we have two copies of The Fellowship of the Ring, and I thought we could take turns with them. I read about a hundred pages before the sharing got too complicated, and I just left the two copies with my boys and moved on to something else. This week I picked it up again and I’m another 150 pages in now. I love this book and I’m so glad to finally be reading it. I’m not sure why, but I get this warm cozy feeling while I’m reading it. Anytime I get confused (so many names!) I can ask Seth for help understanding, though he loses patience with me pretty quickly!
