My thoughts

The works of the Master of Middle-Earth

The Hobbit, or, There and Back Again (1937)

A small piece of advice from your webmaster who is a Tolkien fanatic... If you have children and are about to introduce them to Tolkien, please read it aloud to them for the first time. The book was meant to be read aloud, and performed this way they will acquire an everlasting love of Tolkien's works. I still, today, give live readings to ADULTS who have never read the book; and I have yet to have a dis-satisfied customer.

Concerning this listing

All books up to "Bilbo's Last Song" are solely the work of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien and consist exclusively of his writings concerned with Middle-Earth. Works from "The Silmarillion" onwards are from his unedited notes; assembled, edited and annotated by his son Christopher. Some of the works have, in whole or in part, been printed before in magazines, compilations and scholarly dissertations (e.g. "Leaf by Niggle". In Dublin Review - January 1945); and, of course there are multiple different editions, printings etc... If you wish to have a fully detailed listing of all his writings, please visit A Chronological Bibliography of the Writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, which is an incredible web-page of everything written by and about him; compiled by Åke Bertenstam, giving full and exact details of when and where published.
