    I read The Hobbit several years ago and admittedly didn’t get into it. I was glad when I was done. I was hesitant to pick up The fellowship of the ring but I’m glad I did! I am very into it. I couldn’t stop on this week’s reading and am already ahead. I don’t know if it’s me that’s changed or it was Tolken’s writing that’s grasped my interest. Maybe both and more. But either way, I’m enjoying it! Glad I got in on this book.

    So…who or what are Tom Bombadil and Goldberry? They aren’t elves. I can’t figure out who or what they are.

    Jamie I’m not sure! They way they sing a song and he is to come to their aid makes him feel more leprechaun-y to me but I have no idea! 😆

    So I asked my husband about this (he’s a big fan) and Tolkien would laugh and tell people he likes to leave some mystery in his books- apparently this is a highly asked question and lots of theories/videos on it but Tolkien left it a mystery.
