What Are They Reading? Gandalf edition
First off, Gandalf exists. Somewhere in an alternate universe. This is true because of the multiverse theory and since he does exist somewhere he likely has a library. Why wouldn’t he? He is Gandalf. So I’m introducing a new feature to this blog – What Are They Reading? A feature that takes a look at what books our favourite characters are reading or have read. Basically, a look at what’s on their bookshelves.
Let’s take a look at some of Gandalf’s well read books:
‘Hobbits really are amazing creatures, as I have said before. You can learn all that there is to know about their ways in a month, and yet after a hundred years they can still surprise you at a pinch.”
Based on Gandalf’s comment above, it totally makes sense for him to find out as much as can about the existence of Hobbits. I imagine there are many dog-eared pages in this book. It’s the discovery of the ages – 3 feet tall human beings? Homo floresiensis – or Hobbit if you will – was discovered in Indonesia by an archeologist. Is that where Hobbiton actually originates?
Gandalf is the king hippy – all about nature, smoking weed, spouting words filled with wisdom, love and kookiness. A book about physics from a mystic and spiritual aspect is right at home on Gandalf’s shelf. Can’t wait to borrow it from him
Gandalf has to save everyone’s ass; from hobbits to dwarves to Middle-earth. Can you image the crap that crowds his mind? He needs help separating the big stuff from the small stuff.
Don’t let the title mislead you – this is written from the point of view of the bad guys in Middle-earth. If Gandalf is to stay one step ahead of the bad guys – he needs to know what they are thinking.
Join us next week when we discover what books are on Frodo’s bookshelf.
