I'm reading the 1st book of Lord of the Rings (still in the 1st 100 pages). I'm not going to talk about the story itself. if u had the chance to read the book, not just watch the movie, u could feel that u r living in Hobbitebourg, with all the tiny details.
the Hobbits have a nice habit, which i really liked. to celebrate their birthdays, they offer gifts instead of receiving gifts.
I think feeling the joy of giving is much more then receiving, but unfortunatly, we live in a world where people prefer to receive instead of to give. if really people give, especially for those who need they most, there wouldn't be all that suffering and misery.
