Happy Birthday, Bilbo and Frodo!
|my very tattered set which I've read and re-read too many times|
|new copy....woot woot!|
I wasn't able to read them right away. Eventually, my older sis bought The Hobbit and the LOTR set, and I was hooked. Such a fantastic world Tolkien has created....so rich and detailed that you are transported into Middle-earth right then and there.
With Peter Jackson and the LOTR movies, fans old and new got to enjoy Tolkien's world on the big screen, and for that, us Tolkien fans are grateful. PJ did such an awesome job translating the books into films. The first movie for The Hobbit looks to be another job well-done. (Rooth and I have wondered how PJ will turn the book into three films...I know, right?) Can't wait for December when it comes out!
Are you a Tolkien fan?
Have a great weekend, everyone:)
