The Hobbit - what are your memories?

    I’ve always been an avid reader and Tolkien’s The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings were very influential in my life – not only did they lead to a love of sci-fi and fantasy books but they also made me a ‘compulsive’ reader.

    My fondest memory of The Hobbit is when I read it to my children – it was their bed time story and they loved it. It became a tradition and I had to be a grumpy dwarf every night prior to reading the books. My children, now nearly 22 will be going to the movie with me and hopefully the memories will continue through a new generation with my Grand Son in a few years.

    My father introduced me to "The Hobbit" when I was around nine years old.  He had a copy with illustrations, which I was not allowed to bring back to my mother's house.  I had my mom bring me to the library,  she had to sign permission for me to be able to get to Tolkiens books, they were in the adult section.

    I was so enthralled by Tolkien that the ten year old me checked Tolstoy from the library when J.R.R.'s books ran out.  It was not the same!  lol

    I just read The Hobbit again, and now my nine-year-old grandson is reading it. I can't wait to see the movie! I've read the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I'm reading it again now. I'm a big Tolkien fan.
