Yeah I'm excited.... In fact (having just read the acknowledgments in Rise of the Wyrm Lord yesterday) I was just trying to figure out the best way to inform you of the news, but I see you already know. None of the recent post, this one aside of course, seemed appropriate.

But yes, I'm really happy that he's got it. I love the hobbit, both charming and serious, an excellent work of literature. Along with Lord of the Rings, I read it every year.

COOOOLLLL!!! NEATO!!!! I found it funny that half of the actor/actresses that said they would't be in it unless Peter Jackson was the director are not even born yet in the books. Ironic!
