Welcome to the Grey Havens YA official blog! We’re so glad you’ve stopped by. We are a group of young adults in Longmont, Colorado who love to embrace all things nerd. We embrace every type of fan from every type of fandom, so if you love something, anything, you’re welcome here. One of our members describes us as such: “A nonprofit organization promoting literacy, individuality, and pure, fun nerdiness of all fandoms. Based so far out of the Colorado area, this faction is more particularly for Young Adults (YA) and the promotion of the fantastic skill and jubilance of the new generation.”
Our book group is currently in the midst of discussing J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. We’d like to kick off the blog with one of our favorite passages. Gandalf’s a tricky one, isn’t he?
“’Good Morning!’ said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.
‘What do you mean?’ he said. ‘Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?'”
Good morning to you, in every which way, and welcome to our friendly community!
