The Hobbit for me people. When I was young there was a TV program called Jackanory. When I was about 7 they did a special series that had actors/TV personalities taking on the parts of people from books. One of the books featured during for 1 week was ,The Hobbit. I was captivated, I promptly asked my mum for it and for my 8th birthday she got it for me. I read and re-read it every day before school for what must have been about 8 months.God knows how many times I read it. I have been addicted to fantasy ever since (about 27 years now). Whats your book, or tale, to accompany it please.
