  1. You done good. You were clear, expressed your opinions, and didn't give away anything. I tried reading The Hobbit years ago. It was tough and man, such teeny tiny print in the book I had. I think I finished it but can't remember. I remember the movies more of course with its beautiful scenery.

    1. Thank you! I really appreciate the feedback! Yes, we have a copy of The Hobbit and I've tried to get my 12 year old to read it but he can't get into it either. It's very small print in our version so I think that's also part of the problem.

  2. A vlog review! How cool! I am very impressed :) I am about 6 reviews behind right now, so maybe I should try this, too!

    The book sounds great - and JRR Tolkien's grandson! Very cool. Can't wait to tell my husband tonight. Glad you enjoyed the book.
