Happy Birthday to “The Hobbit”

Since we’re keeping with a theme of Books made into Movies/TV shows… .

On this day in 1937, J.R.R. Tolkien’s story The Hobbit was published!

Let’s just take a minute to appreciate 1) the fact that this book is still popular after so long – so popular, in fact, the major motion pictures, which make MILLIONS of dollars, are captivating audiences who’s grandparents weren’t even alive when the book was first published; and 2) that Tolkien created an entire world – Middle Earth – complete with multiple languages, a rich background, and entire civilizations. Tolkien’s books have played a huge role in my love for literature and reading (thanks, Mom, for letting me read and re-read your books)!

So let me just say “Happy Birthday, Middle Earth, and thank you Mr. Tolkien!”
