People often ask the question: Is reading a hobby? Let me tell you what it is! Here you will find the ultimate list of reasons why reading is a good hobby! I'm sharing some of my favourite books with all of you.

** The Alchemist (Portuguese: O Alquimista) is a novel by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho that was first published in 1988. Originally written in Portuguese, it became a widely translated international bestseller. An allegorical novel, The Alchemist follows a young Andalusian shepherd in his journey to the pyramids Of Egypt, after having a recurring dream of finding a treasure there.

** A Tale of Two Cities is an 1859 historical novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. The novel tells the story of the French Doctor Manette, his 18-year-long imprisonment in the Bastille in Paris and his release to live in London with his daughter Lucie, whom he had never met. The story is set against the conditions that led up to the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror.Dickens' best-known work of historical fiction, A Tale of Two Cities is regularly cited as the best-selling novel of all time.In 2003, the novel was ranked 63rd on the BBC's The Big Read poll.The novel has been adapted for film, television, radio, and the stage, and has continued to have an influence on popular culture.

** The Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy book by the English author and scholar J.R.R.Tolkien; he called it a "heroic romance", denying that it was a novel. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien's 1937 children's book The Hobbit, but eventually developed into a much larger work. Written in stages between 1937 and 1949, The Lord of the Rings is one of the best-selling books ever written, with over 150 million copies sold.

The title names the story's main antagonist, the Dark Lord Sauron, who had in an earlier age created the One Ring to rule the other Rings of Power as the ultimate weapon in his campaign to conquer and rule all of Middle-earth. From quiet beginnings in the Shire, a hobbit land not unlike the English countryside, the story ranges across Middle-earth, following the course of the War of the Ring through the eyes of its characters, most notably the hobbits Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin.

Although generally known to readers as a trilogy, the work was initially intended by Tolkien to be one volume of a two-volume set, the other to be The

Silmarillion, but this idea was dismissed by his publisher.For economic reasons, The Lord of the Rings was published in three volumes over the course of a year from 29 July 1954 to 20 October 1955.The three volumes were titled The Fellowship Of the Ring, The Two Towers and TheReturn of the King. Structurally, the work is divided internally into six books, two per volume, with several appendices of background material at the end. Some editions print the entire work into a single volume, following the author's original intent. The Lord of the Rings has since been reprinted many times and translated into at least 56 languages.Tolkien's work has been the subject of extensive analysis of its themes and origins. Although a major work in itself, the story was only the last movement of a much older set of narratives Tolkien had worked on since 1917 encompassing The Silmarillion,in a process he described as mythopoeia.Influences on this earlier work, and on the story of The Lord of the Rings, include philology, mythology, religion, earlier fantasy works, and his own experiences in the First World War. The Lord of the Rings in its turn has had a great effect on modern fantasy.

The enduring popularity of The Lord of the Rings has led to numerous references in popular culture, the founding of many societies by fans of Tolkien's works,and the publication of many books about Tolkien and his works. The Lord of the Rings has inspire and continues to inspire, artwork, music, films and television, video games, board games, and subsequent literature. Award-winning adaptations of The Lord Of The Rings have been made for radio, theatre, and film. It has been named Britain's best novel of all time in the BBC's The Big Read.
