The Hobbit is what really sparked my love of reading. I first came across this book at school, in the English departments private book-room, many years ago. For whatever reason on that fateful day, the door to that special room was open just a crack, the first time and only time i ever saw it like that, and it only took me a second to slip inside and shut the door silently behind myself. I only intended to have a quick look around, and enjoy the feeling of having a room full of great literature all to myself... when a small paperback adorned with a painting of a beautiful red dragon atop a pile of golden treasure caught my eye. I turned it over in my hand, wondering what on earth was a 'Hobbit' and how come i had never seen this book before. A moment later, with the stolen copy of the Hobbit hid snugly between my notebooks, I ran from the scene of the crime. Within the hour I was at home in my room, falling deeper and deeper into Middle-Earth... and discovering more than i ever could have dreamed of waiting for me there.

Kat Re-reading... again. All those adds for the movies got to me.

Stacia (the 2010 club) I haven't read it yet (or I might have when I was younger but I don't remember) but I really want to before the movie. We have a copy sitting our shelf ready to go.

Kat I always feel so excited for people when they tell me they haven't read one of my favorites... I get all nostalgic thinking back to how I felt the first time I read it! It is such a classic, and I think its a great idea to pick it up before the movie comes out!
