That is very interesting indeed j Padraig moore. I am looking forward to the Hobbit the Movie, but for now I will have to read the book...again..and that's ok too. I will agree with Druid_of_Ark it's very Hobbit forming "good one Druid_of_Ark" I think that the movie between the Hobbit and the Lord Of The Rinds would be interesting. Has me thinking what would of happened...hmmmm...
Honesty requires that I state that the quote "Reading Tolkien is Hobbit Forming" was not mine originally it was in fact quite popular when I was a laddie in school. It may interest some of you and bore others but there is a wee bit of trivia that I share with the LOTR Trilogy, we both burst on the scene in 1956.
Thanks for the heads up on the article, funny what money and ego can do. I look forward to a Hobbit movie. I too was hatched in 1956, and this was important reading and culture when I was in high school. My 16 year old plays LOTR online. I will need to reread the Hobbit. Thanks for the reminder.
