I know this is not romance news but it is still important. My all time favorite book series has been Tolkiens The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy. In 2009 the film production of the Hobbit starts but it could be blocked because the producer of the Lord of the Rings films has supposedly reneged on paying the Tolkien estate 7 1/2% of the films proceeds.
Some what related, does anyone else feel that John McCain resembles a hobbit?
