This week’s theme is: A BOOK THAT RELAXES ME! A topic which is inspired by today being “Take a Walk in the Park Day.”
Cool theme. Sort of a hard one for me though, since I tend to read exciting books filled with action, adventure, magic, monsters, and the like. Can’t really recall any of my books relaxing me. But there is one novel which is so familiar, so comfortable for me to read that it fits the criteria, I suppose. The book I’m speaking of is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring.
You can’t get more original than the cover which J.R.R. Tolkien himself drew for the book, so I’m going with it. Amazing how this author was so talented in every area, including visual arts.
I’ve listed these as my favorite covers for different reasons. The top left cover is the first Fellowship book I ever recall seeing as a kid in the library and being fascinated with. I did not read it at the time, but it stuck in my mind. The other covers at the top are merely ones I’ve seen and liked for some reason. As for the bottom two covers, the blue cover on the right is the book I bought and read as a young teenager in middle school, while the one to the right is probably my favorite image from the first movie.
LEAST FAVORITE COVERS
No real deep reason for putting these covers on my least favorite list. For whatever reason, I do not like them. They are not hideous or bad in any way, but they just do not excite me in the least.
So what do you think. Agree? Disagree?
