If you haven’t read The Hobbit, read it before seeing the movie—that way your imagination will have a first go at creating Tolkein’s world, before the movie solidifies it all for you.

If, like me, you haven’t read The Hobbit for 30 years, re-read it.

  1. […] One chilly late afternoon, my love and I trekked downtown, stopping in at the bookstore to use a gift card we received at Christmas, before going to see The Hobbit (which I still haven’t read). […]

    How about because the book is infinitely superior to the silly movie that picks and chooses what parts to use and which to ignore, while creating entire silly side stories that add nothing.
