A Well-Used Patch of Reading Grass

Did you read anything this summer? I sure did. Summertime is great like that - gifting those of us who have a spare couple of hours during the day with some extra sunlight and a soft patch of green grass to lay on so that maybe we're able to take a breath and jump into an adventure. My choice this past June? Re-reading The Hobbit (for the third time). J.R.R. Tolkien's prelude to Frodo and the Fellowship's infamous journey always reminds me of the first time reading it: my older sister Diana and I sat in our parents' backyard, eating peanuts and drinking blue Kool Aid and found ourselves magically tied up in dragons, dwarves, and one brave little Hobbit. That was more than a few summers ago, but with the anticipation of the first installment of the film adaptation approaching, I felt I owed Mr. Bilbo Baggins a visit. I traveled from Bag End to the Lonely Mountain and back this June!
What was your summer adventure?
