“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

Y‘all, Gandalf the wizard frantically doing a headcount of the dwarves as they are fleeing goblins, briefly losing Kili and Fili before realizing that they are right in front of him has such teacher energy. I relate 😂

Had fun listening on and off throughout the day, now enjoying lap cuddles from a sleepy pupper ❤️

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.

Starting this one tomorrow morning.

MerlinTheSlightlyAwkward So excited for you! Even though it‘s a piece of a dauntingly wide literary universe, The Hobbit is probably one of Tolkein‘s best. It does so well as a stand-alone story. ☺️ 1mo
Darklunarose @MerlinTheSlightlyAwkward ❤️ I‘m very fond of the LOTR movies, so thought this would be a good place to start with the books. 4w

I really enjoyed this prequel to LOTR, I actually prefer The Hobbit as I like Bilbo more than Frodo. I loved the story and how Smaug spoke to Bilbo. Overall really great!

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! 3mo

#AwesomeApril I completed The Hobbit for the readathon. This is the third time I‘ve read it but the last time was over 20 years ago and I‘d never seen the film(s) so there was a lot I‘d forgotten. Lovely story and unlike many readers, I really love the songs! I read ‘em out loud to best appreciate them. 🐉

It's been about forty years since I read this last. And yeah, that's too long. The Recorded Books version is narrated by Rob Inglis, who does a lovely job of it.

Listened to the audiobook version of this one. Quite enjoyable; very well done. I‘ve only seen the old cartoon movie of this story so only vaguely remembered it. I‘ve read the Lord of the Rings series and was interesting trying the audio version, so thought I‘d give this a try. Glad I did!

This is part of my tiny collection. I forgot about some of my items and also this picture had to be cropped for Litsy.

This month, I'm reading the entire #lordoftherings series for the first time. Being a fan of the films for most of my life, I have only ever read The Hobbit. It's so exciting to finally read the original material that's been such an important part of my life! #jrrtolkien #middleearth #thehobbit

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.

Love this cover! Even though the previous owner must have used it as a coaster…. 😢
Such a charming adventure tale.
I can very much relate to Bilbo Baggins who, throughout the adventure and while discovering his strengths and generally being awesome, really just missed his quiet, comfortable, little home with the kettle singing on the stove and a full pantry. I get it, Bilbo.

My book resolution for this new year is to read the Lord oF the Rings novels. My husband and I love the movies with a total nerdy passion, he read the books in school but I didn‘t. So I‘ve decided now I must read them.

What a pinch of nostalgia! I first read this in Jr High and hadn‘t read it since, even though every year for Christmas I have a Lord of the Rings-o-Thon. This audiobook presentation (BBC) wasn‘t my favorite - sometimes voices overlapped and it was a bit confusing - but the story still shines through! 🥰

This book is interesting. The way it was written is very old, which I think is cool. It is also really exciting. There are trolls and dwarfs and hobbit‘s it is crazy. My teacher thinks that it is super bad, but it really is amazing

BookDadGirlDad Super bad? What kind of teacher says that? It's classic!!!! 9mo
Ryan Elford I know right. She is a fun teacher, but has a bad taste in books 9mo
