Shopping til the very end

Standard

After two hours of mad hunting I came home hopeless, exhausted and worst of all giftless.

The Christmas shopping has begun and all I bought until now is a Sherlock Homles book for my friend and a travel journal for my mom. And I am kind of in a time crisis. I also fear the apocalypse may find me in a shop. Or at The Hobbit.
So… Last day on earth, huh? Everyone’s making jokes like there’s no tomorrow. Hahaha. I’m in a funny mood. However I am thinking that if I survive whatever happens tomorrow ( most near-death experience will probably be seeing the trailer of Star Trek on the big screen) I should do a bucket list. 100 things I want to do before I die. I mean, it’s sort of essential for every person, you know?

Learning time: The Hobbit

Standard

So, I have decided to do some posts ( Learning times) where I can post about books I read, opinions on them or sometimes, movies. Why? Because I want to share with you those I find great and maybe make some of you read more, a thing everyone should make a routine out of.
So, as you all know, on the 14th of December the big premiere of the Hobbit appears and I hate seeing a movie without reading its book. That is why today I bought J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel and started it immediately. You can judge me for not having read it until now, but better late than never. So far, so good is all I can say. I can always admire a writer who creates a whole world by himself, who leaves reality behind and focuses on a fictional universe. The start is definitely promising and I am sure the rest will not disappoint me.
Of the movie I have heard a lot lately and I am far too excited for it. I’m just very curious to see little Martin as a hobbit. I’m sure I’ll have a good laugh, then I will be amazed…
Hmmm, well, until the 14th of December( after, sooner,..anytime really) let me know what you are reading, what books you like or what you are planning to see in the near future 🙂
