The Fellowship of the Ring
by J.R.R. Tolkien
Oscar Wilde said, "If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all." At least once a year I immerse myself in Tolkien's world reading the Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion. I return for the comfort of a well-known story, the beauty of his writing and the depth of the world he created.
