“And there was also one last surprise, in honour of Bilbo, and it startled the hobbits exceedingly, as Gandalf intended. The lights went out. A great smoke went up. It shaped itself like a mountain seen in the distance, and began to glow at the summit. It spouted green and scarlet flames. Out flew a red-golden dragon - not life-size, but terribly life-like: fire came from his jaws, his eyes glared down; there was a roar, and he whizzed three times over the heads of the crowd. They all ducked, and many fell flat on their faces. The dragon passed like an express train, turned a somersault, and burst over Bywater with a deafening explosion.”
- Fellowship of the Ring, JRR Tolkien
I dragged my Mum through Kinokuniya in Sydney yesterday, before we went to see Ramin Karimloo. She found a book she wanted, I found some I didn’t really need but bought anyway - Blue Lily Lily Blue (the next in the Raven Cycle because I’m obsessed with that series at the moment), and another edition of Jane Eyre. That is number 10 for my collection...
