Happy International Tolkien Reading Day!

This is my first attempt at a video blog and includes a reading from the beginning of The Hobbit!
Today is International Tolkien Reading Day, which was begun in 2003 to bring integrate more of Tolkien’s fabulous fantasy worlds into the new generation’s school and library group readings.
(It is also a way to celebrate the pre-anniversary of the Fall of Sauron, which happens in the Third Age of Middle Earth..March 25, 3019)
