5 ways to read through Lord of the Rings


In 8th grade I had to read the Hobbit and it the first book that carry me away into the fantasy genre. Right after I read Lord of the Rings. Not once or twice, but three times between the age of 13 and 14. 

Now at 20 something I have met and known people who try to read LOTR in their 20s and can't get through it. A common response as to why is that 'it boring'.

The Dewey Decimal System

The Dewey Decimal System The Dewey Decimal System by Nathan Larson

Goodreads: Review

Author: Nathan Larson

Genre: Dystopian, thriller, Mental Health

Age: YA, Adult

POV: 1st person
Summary: Dubbed "Dewey Decimal" for his desire to reorganize the library's stock, our protagonist (who will reappear in the next novel in this series) gets by as bagman and muscle for New York City's unscrupulous district attorney. Decimal takes no pleasure in this kind of civic dirty work. He'd be perfectly content alone amongst his books. But this is not in the cards, as the DA calls on Dewey for a seemingly straightforward union-busting job.

What unfolds throws Dewey into a bloody tangle of violence, shifting allegiances, and old vendettas, forcing him to face the darkness of his own past and the question of his buried identity.
