I bought three copies of the hobbit, 2 silmarillions and 1 LOTR last year! :elfbiggrin: I wish somebody had given me the books when I was younger. I told my boyfriend we had to give his 13 year old sister the hobbit for her birthday 'cause I knew she'd love it. I'm planning to make her as hooked on Tolkiens world as I am. She'll be getting LOTR for next Christmas I think. :angel:
I agree with Einar, the hobbit has to be read first. I wish I'd known that earlier, but I had no-one to ask. I still loved it though. When I'm done with my second reading of LOTR, I'll read the hobbit again.
