The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug comes to theatres tomorrow.
Are you inspired to go see the film? Well, if you're somehow not (or you're just a big Lord of the Rings fan!), then consider checking out the five books below, each of which was inspiration for J.R.R. Tolkien when he was creating his worlds and his stories.
Recently released by Penguin Books, these five books -- known as the Legends from the Ancient North collection -- contain tales and epics taken from the annals of Norse literature. Included are such classics as Beowulf and The Elder Edda, as well as others like Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Saga of the Volsungs, and The Wanderer: Elegies, Epics, and Riddles.
Find them in our bookstores today (look for our display table in our Grant Park store, as seen to the right), or order right here on the website!Categories: SciFi & Fantasy, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, New Releases, Publishing News
