Books Worth Reading
Prelude to J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings , but a complete tale in itself. Mr. Bilbo Baggins, a humble hero (blessed with a little wisdom and a little courage and considerable good luck), visited various notable persons; conversed with the dragon and experienced other remarkable things on his journey of adventure
Don't feel bad if you didn't know about Game of Thrones or George R.R. Martin until the spectacular HBO series. Just be happy you didn't have to wait years for the 5th in the series to come out in 2011 and revitalize Castle Rock and the rest of Martin's deep and complicated world. The first book is amazing, and one of the best I have ever read. Don't think watching the series is enough, because the book is even better.
