I first read The Hobbit a few years ago. So in honor of the movie coming out in December, I decided to re-read it. Turns out it is just as awesome as it was a few years ago. I love the absolute sense of adventure. The storytelling is amazing and it put me in such a Lord of the Rings mood that I started the Fellowship of the Ring immediately after finishing it. If you have not yet read The Hobbit, do so now!
