Happy Hobbit Day!

Today, September 22, marks the 80th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit, the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, and the 10th anniversary of the “publication” of my totally real book The Lord of the Rings: A New English Translation, as detailed in my totally real essay at The Toast, “How I Defeated the Tolkien Estate.”

So, take today to celebrate The Hobbit and everyone’s favorite hobbits with tea and biscuits (and maybe a bit of pipe-weed) in a comfy armchair next to a roaring fire. It’s what Bilbo would want.
