      Thanks, Helen. I’ve read The Hobbit numerous times, including reading it aloud to both my kids and to numerous classrooms of my students over the years. But this time, I want to listen to the audiobook version narrated by the incredibly talented Andy Serkis. Should be a great new adventure!

      Kay, I’d be happy if one of those three was chosen, too. And I’m excited to find out how the Andy Serkis narration goes. He’s sooo talented!

      Jane, it’s one of my husband’s favorite books, and I read it ages ago, but it’s time for a reread because I don’t remember much about it now. (Except the first line!)

      Thanks, Marianne. I enjoyed looking at your spin list, too, and look forward to seeing which one is chosen. I haven’t always finished my Spin choice but I love the challenge.

        So do I, Robin. It doesn’t matter if we don’t finish the spin choice. It shouldn’t be a chore and we don’t get paid for it, right? I’ve been lucky so far and didn’t have a problem. A couple of books I could have done without but they were not too too long.

      Thanks for sending both links, WordsAndPeace! This Rushdie is one of my husband’s favorites, so it’s time to read it. Enjoy your spin reading! I’m off to check out your list!
