4. Indulge In Some Literary Love

5. Go And See The Hobbit

It's the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Peter Jackson's The Hobbit is definitely worth a watch on the big screen - make sure you go for the 3D version, its deep! Martin Freeman makes an excellent Bilbo but there are just one too many orcs for our liking...
