Lord of the Rings

Woo hoo! Bub officially finished reading the entirety of Lord of the Rings today. The Engineer quizzed him on his knowledge. It was a little sketchy. I personally couldn't blame the boy. We could use the book as a booster seat it's so huge! I think he's been reading it for over a year. He's read so many other books in between, it's a wonder he remembers any of it.

Now we are going to hear a daily request to watch the movies. He has wanted to watch them for so long, but Daddy made a deal with him that he had to read the whole series first. Since he completed them I guess Daddy has a deal to honour. You go boy! Well done! I'll make the popcorn. A BIG BIG bowl. You'll need it to keep up your strength. Especially in the battle scene I thought would never end.

This is the hardcover version with all three (or six depending on how you look at it) books in one. Quite a load to hold while lying on your back. He made it work though. Have to love the half sun half shade positioning.


  1. Wow! I'm impressed. How old is he? 'Cause I haven't actually made it through those books myself.

  2. Lol! I haven't made it through them either. He is eleven.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love to hear from my readers!
