really liked it

I never thought I'd like fantasy as a child since my mother didn't. She loved Little Women and Laura Ingalls Wilder and I did too. Why would I like what she didn't like? So I didn't read The Hobbit until I was an adult. HELLO! Loved it!

Shauna I was exactly the same. Well, it wasn't really based on my mom. I don't think she was much of a reader as a kid. But I wasn't into fantasy, even in junior high. I read the Hobbit as a college assignment and ate it up like candy.

Laura Silly rabbit ;)
If I may give some advice on tackling Lord of the Rings - skip the battle scenes the first time through ;)
