We got my husband books this year for his birthday. First up is this used copy of The Hobbit from a cute little book store in our town. Thror's map is a leather Kindle cover I got him for our anniversary last year.

I just finished this marvelous book once again, rereading it as always gives me such comfort. It is a perfect read for winter. You fall in love with the epic tale of a small person becoming a great hero. All the characters are amazing, no matter how brief they are.

My 4 year old decided to gift The Hobbit (or as he says "the Hujjit) to our cat Haji. At least I got to finish reading it first LOL!

PurpleTulipGirl Your cat looks, as one might expect, rather disdainful of Tolkien. A cat would probably never admit to liking a book. 20h

I love this series. In all honesty the physical books are hard to get through. (Much like John Carter of Mars. Very dry and dense.)

But the audiobooks breath in a whole new life to the series!

Just finished my second reading of the Hobbit with this delightful collectors edition. The first time reading this was back in the 9th or 10th grade. Back in those days I read a lot of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. This collectors edition made reading it the second time all the more enjoyable with the colorful illustrations included within. I will now watch the 3 movies and compare them to the book. I remember watching the first movie some time ago.

Leftcoastzen I have this edition and just love it. 4w

I‘ve filled in my #readinglog with a third book for January. So far, I‘ve read #fireandblood, #thehobbit and #thebeautyofthefall. The best book I read this month was #thehobbit. If I don‘t fill all of my #readinglog in this year then I can use it next year. I probably won‘t finish reading #theworldoficeandfire this month because there‘s 2 more days left in January but when I finish it, I will add it to this paper.

When i first read this book i was not pleased to be doing so, it was an enforced pre-requisit before being allowed to read the lord of the rings. After reading it i was happy i had done so - not only is it an entertaining and enrichening tale in its own right, it adds a lot more depth to its sequal

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView

1. Yes, I reread 6 books in 2019. I used to reread a lot, and haven't much for a long time, so I really enjoyed it. I hope to start rereading more again.

2. So hard to pick, I had a great reading month. I'll say a tie between Le Guin's The Dispossessed and my reread of The Hobbit.

TheSpineView Great reads! Happy Tuesday! 2mo

#FellowshipOfTolkien #ThereAndBackAgain

There is always such a sense of loss in Tolkien's concluding chapters, even when a lot is gained.
I often shed some tears at the end of his stories. It wasn't any different this rime.
There's such a masterful mix of sadness and happyness in this closing chapter.
It always saddens me to live Middle-Earth, but in The Hobbit, l do it with a smile.

Linsy It is such an impactful ending! I felt so much nostalgia for the beginning, but glad to be back and snuggled. 🥰 2mo

I like that, in spite of all the bad things that happened in the last few chapters, things end on a positive note.
The dwarves show their worst and their best in these last chapters, what complex characters they truly are.

#FellowshipOfTolkien #ThereAndBackAgain

I'm always pleasantly surprised of how Tolkien writes battle scenes, which is one of the hardest things to do in storytelling.
He never confuses. I always have the sensation he perfectly knows what's happening and so l know too. He has a great sense of the epic, and still some passages are very personal.

He's fantastic.

Daisey Very true! 2mo

I hope everyone has had a chance to finish or is able to catch-up over this weekend.

I just want to say that I loved re-reading this with you all, and at this time of year it seemed like such a good fit...one chapter a day and each chapter a small self contained mini adventure, like an advent calendar of short stories combining into one book.

Started the #11thHourReadathon very late yesterday, but still managed to finished The Hobbit.

And once again l absolutely loved it. This last part really made me think and feel, and l confess l even shade a few tears, in that episode you know.
Bilbo's pure heart and willingness to be useful was so endearing. And also so inspiring.

Loved it. Just loved it once more.
