777

Standard

I’m going to try something fun: Every week or so, I’ll choose a book, find the 7th sentence on page 77, and post it. Why 777? Because it’s supposed to be lucky. 🙂

Today’s book is The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“Suddenly he heard a screech.”

Context is fun for this one! This is during Bilbo’s match of riddles with Gollum, and Gollum has just discovered his precious is missing…. This is definitely my favourite scene in the entire novel. The movie, An Unexpected Journey, does it flawlessly, in my opinion.

More 777s to come! And if you’d like to comment with your own 777s, I’d love to hear them!
