"In a hole in the ground lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, But a dry, bare sandy hole. It was a hobbit hole, and that means comfort."

It's been something like ten years since I read "The Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings". I just started re-reading the books this weekend. I don't know if I'll be able to imagine Gandalf or Frodo as anyone other than Ian McKellen or Elijah Wood. I'll see for myself how much was left out of the movies. I knew just enough about the story to greatly enjoy the two movies so far, but it was far enough in the past that I didn't miss whatever was cut.
