Books to Movies Giveaway Hop (INT)

Welcome to my stop on the Books to Movies Giveaway Hop hosted by the fantastical Sweeping the USA and I Am A Reader, Not A Writer! I've chosen to give away a book that is one that is being made into three films, with the first of which being released this year. This is a very important book to me because - as I have said many times in the past - it is the reason that I am a reader.

What You Can Win


There are no words for how desperately excited I am about the upcoming release of the first movie in The Hobbit adaptation trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I was anxious for the release of the Harry Potter movies, but I was literally quivering in my theater seat while I waited for The Fellowship of the Ring to begin. Tolkien is a literary genius, and one of my heroes. The Hobbit is one of the most important books in my life, and I would like to share it with you.

Giveaway Requirements

  2. The Hobbit is my favourite book as well. I'm not too excited at the prospect of Peter Jackson doing the movie. In my opinion he wrecked the LOTR story in his adaptation of Tolkien's vision. The movies were visually spectacular, but they were not Tolkien's story.

  9. Thank you for the giveaway!

  10. I am not entering (already own this book), but I just wanted to say that the Hobbit is also a very influential book in my life. I think that it is among the few books (along with the LOTR trilogy) that I have read at least ten times. I had my tickets for the midnight premier of Fellowship the moment they went on sale, and you can bet that I will be doing the same for The Hobbit!
