Read from May 13 to 22, 2010 — I own a copy , read count: floppity jillion

The Hobbit remains one of my favorite books, and I highly recommend the annotated edition for adults who are interested in learning more about the background of this wonderful story. One of the elements I found most interesting were the reproductions of artwork from different editions and translations of The Hobbit -- some of them are marvelous, some of them are downright cringe-worthy.
