For those who still aren’t tired of courses on ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’, good news! Kristen writes: Barnes and Noble University is once again offering a course on The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, beginning on May 3. The course has no fee if you’re registered (registration is free and takes only a few minutes). It is taught by Dana Paxson and more information can be found at under the liberal arts section!
