Teaser Tuesday: The Hobbit

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

He liked visitors, but he liked to know them before they arrived, and he preferred to ask them himself. He had a horrible thought that the cakes might run short, and that he–as the host: he knew his duty and stuck to it however painful- he might have to go without.

pg. 21 of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

  1. Yeah, The Hobbit. I’m doing the read-along too and finished up last night. I was planning to read a few chapters here and there but gave in and finished. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it.

    • Good on you. This is my first reread of the whole series, although I wonder if my childish first reading should actually count, since I was focused on Legolas. (Oh, those were the days, when preteen girls swooned over Legolas…)
