    Ugh… Lord of the Rings. It took me four tries to make it through all three books. I think Tolkien described each leaf in Middle Earth.

    I would also recommend reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel. It’s a fairly recent book (2001), but it’s one of my all-time favourites.

      @Sherri

      I would NEVER torture myself with all four 🙂 My partner reads those books, and they are just. . .so. . .boring.

      I figure I better read one though, before I die. 🙂
