Author Lois Lowry's modern despotic tale written specifically for a younger audience takes place in a future where all the unpleasantries of life have been taken away; even color became a thing of the past. The story's main character is a boy chosen to become the Receiver of Memory -- the only person who can recall what life was like before all of these changes occurred. But as he begins this process, he realizes things aren't exactly as they seem and decides to take measures into his own hands for the sake of good.

"In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit." On September 21, 1937, J.R.R. Tolkien published The Hobbit. 75 years later, we're still reading about that hobbit who left that hole in the ground to follow a band of dwarves and a wizard on a great adventure. The children's novel has been translated into more than 40 languages, sold tens of millions of copies, and has been made into an upcoming movie trilogy. It even had a series of sequels you may have heard of.

Thanks for years of adventure, Bilbo Baggins. Happy 75th Birthday!

Set humor to ludicrous speed!
