I just finished re-reading The Hobbit the other day and am really excited to see the movie that's supposed to be out in December; that's one of the reasons I wanted to read it again. I also like to see if they keep to the original story; I hope they will.
If you hadn't read it in awhile or at all, I hope you do. There's just something about Tolkien's writings that take you outside of yourself and transport you to his world of Middle Earth. If you enjoy Wizards, Dwarves, Elves, Dragons and of course Hobbits then you'll love it! ;)
