Love This Book! I think a big part of why I love The Hobbit is because two of the three times I've read it, I've listened to the audio version with my young son. We always have an audio book going and sharing books is a wonderful way for us to always have at least one thing in common to talk about.
The first time we listened to it, he had to have been about 8 years old. This time around, he's 11 and we've decided to read the Lord of the Rings series immediately afterward. I imagine we'll listen to The Hobbit and the LOTR series together again.
