Thirteen dwarves, a wizard and a hobbit. A handy reference guide for The Hobbit. I knew all their names, but I had trouble matching the names with their faces. Pinning this stuff makes me feel like such a nerd.
I actually would throw The Hobbit book at them and tell them they better read this. THEN, I would throw all THREE LotR books at them, make them read those, and OBVIOUSLY they will love it by then and we can watch the movies together.
