  1. This is the weekend in 1980 I first I read the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings! My older brother thought I should read it before the cartoon came on. So I read the entirety of the Hobbit and LOTR at age 9. I can’t say I understand it all, but I was ready for the cartoon when it premiered.

    I always knew it was around 1980 or so that it came on TV and I did this, but not precisely when. Thanks for clarifying that, Mike!
