Hobbitses

People like to complain about Peter Jackson, but if it wasn't for his movies and the surrounding nerd rage I might not have read The Hobbit. A couple years ago my friends and I had a pizza and beer fueled discussion about what "well read" meant and I decided to read more books. That amounted to reading Pride and Prejudice, being proud of myself for reading a classic piece of literature, and going back to surfing the internet.

While writing my d20p List and drinking another beer, I decided to read The Lord of the Rings. Basically because I had to think of something for #19 and I have a lot of iBooks store credit. I hope I don't turn into a purist. I like the movies and it's against the Code of Thundera to be outraged at the thing that inspired me to read the books in the first place.
