Another Fan Reading: From the Hobbit


I've mentioned in the past my devotion to J. R. R. Tolkien and my addiction to soft spoken relaxation videos on youtube. This is me making my own soft spoken reading. I'd like to eventually do much longer videos of this sort of thing, including some picture book readings, but I'm still working on my slide show skills.

This selection is from the Hobbit and is one of my all time favorite poems.

  1. Excellent poem and a great idea! Good luck with your slide show skills, they're well on their way :)

  2. Hi Heidilyn! Thanks for linking up on the Make My Saturday Sweet blog hop! I listened to your reading of the Hobbit. Tolkien was from South Africa, but you probably already know that. I think this was a very creative project.It sounded really nice, but my speakers aren't strong enough to get the full effect. I read every Wed. at the Blind Inst. in a sound room as a volunteer. Have a great week!

    1. Thanks, yeah, I'm a little bit of a Tolkien trivia buff/super fan. I'm planning on doing more read-aloud videos. I'm considering putting some of Coryn's story books in that form, but you never know when someone is going to hit you over the head with the copyright laws.
