Happy Birthday to The Hobbit!

J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit was published 75 years ago today! The beloved fantasy adventure has been translated into over forty languages.

And perhaps you’ve heard that Peter Jackson‘s film version will be in theaters this December!?

HCPL’s online resource NoveList offers a great list of “read-alikes” — other books you may enjoy if you liked The Hobbit. Go to NoveList, search “hobbit;” when you click on the book for full information, a list of read-alikes appears at right. (To use NoveList from home, have your library card number ready.)
