Reading, Making, Seeing

So I'm already a day behind in counting my 1000 gifts.  I was Manager on Duty at my place of employment until 11 PM last night and was just too tired to write a post.  So, there will be 2 posts today.

Joy Dare prompts:  Something I'm reading, making, and seeing (14, 15, 16).

I usually have 3-4 books that I am reading at one time and it's much easier since I got a Kindle.  The book I have been spending the most time in lately has been (and this should come as no surprise to you if you know me):  The Hobbit (the link is to Kindle version on Amazon).

I am very thankful for all of Tolkien's writings, as referenced to in earlier posts. I'm now reading it with new eyes and it's just so much fun to enter back into a book from my childhood but to also look at it in a totally new way as an adult.  Thank you Professor Tolkien!

Something I'm making...  I am just starting to learn how to work with video and audio files and am in the process of putting something together using the song Judy Garland recorded years ago entitled, "Dear Mr. Gable."  Watch this space!

How can I not be thankful for Sir Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" movie!  In fact, I am going to go see it again this afternoon, which will make, yes, admitting it to the world -- one dozen times.

My favorite character is Thorin Oakenshield, son of Thrain, son of Thror, last King under the Mountain (played by Richard Armitage).

One of these days I will actually write my own review.  
And just in case you've been in a coma for the past few months and haven't seen the trailer:

If you have not seen this movie, 
you really must go while it is in the theater.  
It is meant to be seen on the big screen! 
It is such a visual treat with such timeless truths.
