Book 2

Continuing my top ten list for books that got me into the fantasy / gaming scene.

Book 2

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.  I think I was 10 when my mother put this book in my hands.  I devoured it.  I had already seen the 1977 cartoon by Rankin/Bass and the book was even better.  You can check out part of the movie at youtube.

Eventually, I read the other three, along with the Silmarillion.

I was also taken with the early cartoon Flight of Dragons.  You can watch part of it here!
