The Hobbit - J. R. R.Tolkien
The enchanting prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a quiet and contented hobbit whose life is turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves on their quest to reclaim stolen treasure. It is a journey fraught with danger and in the end it is Bilbo Baggins alone who must face the guardian of this treasure, the most dreaded dragon in all Middle-earth.
I really couldn't find a book on my wishlist this week to post about so I decided to include The 7oth Anniversary Edition of The Hobbit that I recently added to my Christmas Wishlist (early I know, but I like being prepared!). I absolutely love Tolkien and love, love, love this little tale of adventure. I realised that I didn't really have a nice copy of this book and seeing as I collect Tolkien books and have a lovely hardback version of The Lord of the Rings, I came to the conclusion that I needed a nice hardback copy for my shelves. I'm also so excited about the first film coming out in December! :)
