Today marks the 74th anniversary of the publication of the Hobbit by George Allen & Unwin. It was on 21 September, 1937 that the first copies of this now-famous fantasy tale rolled off the presses and into the shops.
What, you still haven't read The Hobbit?
READ IT. Seriously. It's awesome.
No time to read? May I recommend the audio book version of The Hobbit, performed by Rob Inglis? It is, in my opinion, one of the best audio book performances of all time. He also reads The Lord of the Rings audio books. Both, unabridged, of course!
