Unless they aren't But I will try to bang something out during naps tomorrow (please Durin, let them all nap tomorrow) about The Hobbit. I know that some shade has been thrown about this book, and I agree that it is far from Tolkien's best writing, there are some great parts as well as some not so great stuff that is nevertheless worthy of discussion.

Anyway, if you have comments about The Hobbit or about Tolkien or about how stupid this idea is, post them below.
