Anniversary of The Hobbit book

The Hobbit book was published on this day (September 21st) in 1937! Legend has it Tolkien gave the manuscript to friends, and it fell in the hands of publisher Stanley Unwin, whose 10-year old son read it. Of course he loved it, so it was published..and, the literary classic was born!
