Wishful Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bluestocking at The Bluestocking Guide.
My first Wednesday wish is for The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien.
Summary from Infinitas Bookshop:
The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves in search of dragon - guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfortloving unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar. Encounters with trolls, goblins, wizards, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of Five Armies are just some of the adventures that befall Bilbo.
So, why The Hobbit when it is always readily available at any local book store? I am after a very specific edition, or rather cover. I am after the paperback of the one pictured here but it is one of the rare circumstances where they have changed the cover but continued to use the same ISBN! Now this cover is nearly impossible to find but I want it to match the rest of my set.
If anyone spots this cover in a store somewhere or has one in good condition that they are willing to sell or swap please let me know!
