The Hobbit

Well, it looks like I have carpal tunnel, or something that mimics the symptoms of carpal tunnel, so I have not been posting as often as I would normally. My hand hurts too much when I try to type for long periods of time–it’s so unfortunate! I really do spend most of my time either typing or writing, so this has been a big hindrance. Hopefully it will heal soon.

Today’s post is about the famous JRR Tolkien book, The Hobbit, a personal favorite of mine from a very young age. There’s a movie coming out next winter (I believe), made with roughly the same idea in mind as the LOTR series.

1937, George Allen and Unwin, Co.

This is the original dust jacket:

1966, Houghton Mifflin.

1980, Unwin Paperbacks.

1987, Houghton Mifflin.

2001, Graphia.

And…the trailer for the new movie! Now that they’re releasing one, maybe they’ll issue reprints with exciting new cover art.
