Fellow Tolkien fans and academicians, we’re happy to know that so many different editions and printings of The Hobbit abound. In your scholarly writings of doom, you dutifully write down the page numbers for your quotations, but when your readers go searching for it – their page numbers are probably different. Fear not, here’s your index to all the paragraphs of The Hobbit by unique paragraph number. Each paragraph is identified by its chapter number, decimal, paragraph number within that chapter. May clarity reign. Thank you to Robin Reid for her help with the text. Gratitude to my Data Mooshing Specialist, Daroc Alden.
I have used the text edited by Douglas Anderson: Tolkien, J.R.R. (2012-02-15). The Hobbit: 75th Anniversary Edition. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Kindle Edition.
