I LOVED the animated version of The Hobbit. We also had at least part 2 of the animated Lord of the Rings. Part one was Fellowship of the Ring and the first half of Two Towers and part 2 had the rest of the books. But The Hobbit was the best.

i was a kid - i didn't really know/realise what i was watching. i actually didn't realise what a lot of things were when i was younger. and i also mean when i was in my 20s, too. XD

Rankin and Bass did cartoon versions of The Hobbit and The Return of the King, and there was also a weird sort of half-animated Lord of the Rings that went up until the battle at Helm's Deep.

I really need to get better about setting limits on my Netflix watching. And also sticking to it. Mainly because I know I could probably have made a lot of book progress yesterday but instead watched almost 50% of my Netflix downloads. (Was at around 70 unwatched episodes of various shows and anime...)

whenever i'm watching something - network tv, netflix, or a show on my computer - i'm also crocheting something. right now, i'm watching Friday the 13th the Series on my laptop, and working on the blanket that's a present for my older daughter. =)

sometimes, if all factors are "right," i can crochet and read at the same time. XD

I can only make things while watching stuff if it's in english. Unfortunately, I have been on a big anime kick lately and I just cannot tolerate dubbed (it just sounds so wrong), so I can't work on stuff because I only know occasional words in Japanese, so I need to be able to read the subtitles.

...about 98% that I've been watching are based on manga, yes. The other 2% might be, but I'm not certain...

I've been cheating and listening to audiobooks on youtube for the various short stories I've been reading and discussion over on librarything.

I've finally abandoned kids reading to get back to The Witcher and have started Asylum of Caligari, already too amused because it starts at the New York Armory Show.

I've decided to start tracking down horror books that go with all the horror movies I watch. Did anyone read a short story called "The Lottery" in high school? It was written by Shirley Jackson, who also wrote the book The Haunting of Hill House, which the movie (and netflix series!) "The Haunting" are based on. She has a pile of books, so I'm going to start at those when I'm done with Caligari and The Witcher.

Still waiting for the film "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" to get here.

EDIT: Ha! It's on the way!

hmm.... i don't know if it's a show based on a book if it counts as reading... but Quiet Man, audiobooks count as books though.

and YES, i've read The Lottery by Shirley Jackson. loved it!

Lol, I definitely wasn't serious. I'm so strict with myself, that I don't count audio books because it's a reading challenge, not a listening one. But that's just me. Others can count audio books if they want.

i knew you weren't serious about the anime. i mean, if that was the case, i could have watched the BBC miniseries for War & Peace and said "i read the book." XD

i mean, i read an awesome translation of War & Peace, and then watched the BBC mini as my reward for finishing the book. it also helped that i was familiar with the musical Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 (generally shortened to The Great Comet), which is taken literally from the middle of War & Peace, with some pieces from other parts that make it more fun. like the Duel. XD
