Every year at Thanksgiving I like to think about the books/authors I'm particularly thankful for! Because really, books have been one of the biggest comforts, supports, and joys in my life! 💕📚💕

Today I'm thinking about Tolkien and the glorious worlds he created, mostly because of how much I loved the Rings of Power show! The Hobbit was the first fantasy book that I read and fell in love with, and I'm super thankful for that, and for Tolkien!

CBee I loved Rings of Power too! Anxiously waiting for more 😅 6d
Branwen @CBee Me toooooooo! That ending! 😱❤️ 5d

I make my son a Christmas ornament every year, but last year he requested Bilbo Baggins because he read The Hobbit. It took me so long to decide how to do it, that I didn't get it done. I set the project aside and picked it up yesterday. I have all the pieces cut and packed so I can stitch him up on our drive to Tennessee for Thanksgiving. I can't wait to see how he turns out!

I do love this book. And Andy Serkis is simply the best.
I was first introduced to it when my aunt bought an illustrated copy from The Little Bookroom. Beatrix was equally bewitched. She has insisted on proceeding straight to The Lord of the Rings against my better judgment - too scary (the Black Riders terrify me) and too complex. But I could not resist. Trialling it as family audiobook with Polly and will see how it goes.

Did I need more copies of the Hobbit or LOTR...no!!

Did I buy more at the book sale anyways...yes!! They are my favorite books (especially the Hobbit) after all.

Kind of bummed that the matching edition of The Fellowship was missing it's cover so I didn't end up with a full set but that's a used book sale for you.

Leftcoastzen Cool ! I think it‘s great when people collect different copies of their favorite book. 2mo

If you are a fan of Tolkien and The Hobbit, you're not alone! It's such a wonderful classic fantasy story that can be enjoyed by people of all ages!

But! It is a book that has been challenged/banned in the past! 😮 In fact, in 2001, a Christian extremist group burned copies of The Hobbit and other books by Tolkien because they felt the books contained witchcraft and satanic themes!

I can‘t believe that I had never read this until now. What a fun, goofy romp. I‘d love to write more about it, but my brain is mush from running the gauntlet of prep week/orientations at preschool, so I‘ll just say it lived up to the hype, is better than the movies, and I liked the Andy Serkis audiobook.

Picture is the headboard we‘ve been working on this summer, almost done. It will always make me think of the Misty Mountains!

Cortg Love the headboard! I read The Hobbit a few years ago and loved it. I haven‘t read LOTR yet, but plan to eventually! 3mo

“loved this book was one of my favorites I found it very interesting how the main characters did not defeat Smaug and instead Smaug was defeated by a nearby towns guards by hitting his weak spot with an arrow which sparked an argument between the main characters and everyone else who wanted a piece of Smaug's treasure horde

Finally getting around to giving Tolkien another try. I bounced off LOTR in middle school and have been meaning to try again as an adult. It is my middle nibling‘s current read aloud, and apparently she is loving it. I can‘t think of a better reason to try again! I just listened to the first bit and found it very cozy and fun. Posting a pic of my prairie garden blooming, because apparently Bilbo is very fond of flowers, like myself.

This was a re-read for me but I decided to listen to it for our road trip to Colorado. I still had fun listening to it. I loved the dwarves and I loved Bilbo's growth. What I loved best was listening to how the narrator interpreted the songs. But I must admit that there were many parts that I found myself drifting off.

imyril I've been sorely tempted to pick up his narrations, but I grew up listening to the BBC radio adaptation of Lord of the Rings - which even Peter Jackson couldn't drum out of me, the two version of “fly you fools“ compete in my head - so I've resisted so far by telling myself I'm going to replace my ancient unplayable cassettes 😂 ...but the Serkis version is unabridged, so sorely, sorely tempted! 6mo

I enjoyed this much more than I expected. I've tried reading LOTR before and did not like it at all so I wasn't interested in the Hobbit, but it was my bookclub's pick for the month so I gave it a shot. The audiobook read by Andy Serkis definitely helped. He did an amazing job bringing the characters and story to life.
