The Hobbit and Pinterest
I read it first when I was about 12 and from then, it became my go-to book whenever I was home sick. I borrowed my brother's old copy which had a page missing but I didn't care.
I've gone through a couple more copies since then and my latest is the one on the left, with illustrations by Alan Lee. I have the Lord of the Rings of this set, too.
The movie opens next week and as much as I love the book, I'm ambiguous about the movie. I was super-excited when the Lord of the Rings were being made, I tracked all the news, bought the extended DVDs ... I love it all is what I'm trying to say.
And, don't get me wrong, I think Martin Freeman is perfect to play Bilbo, I just ... *sigh*. I wish it wasn't three movies. One movie would have me dancing in the aisles. I was even excited about two movies. But. Three movies. Plus I can't watch 3D because it makes me vertigo-y ... lol look at my first world problems ...
Anyway .... I have pinterest and embarrassingly, I've JUST worked out how it works and decided that it's awesome so follow me there: http://pinterest.com/justaddbooks/
