The Hobbit in Sindarin

Hey, I'm thinking of translating The Hobbit in Sindarin
It originally was written by Bilbo in Westron, but since Westron is such an obscure language that's been almost entirely transformed into english by Tolkien, I think that Sindarin is pretty much my only alternative with Quenya (but quenya is a bit unnecessary for such a book)
You could image that Bilbo, while he was staying in Rivendell told his story a good amount of times and it ended up being written down in Sindarin by someone else or himself.
I'd really like to own a book in Sindarin and think that it could probably interest a lot of people too even if they don't speak elvish, it'd be interesting just for the novelty of it
Tell me what you think of it!
(Pic related is the first parapraph of the book, except that it's not Sindarin but english written in Tengwar c': )

how can humanities and stem-cucks even compete?
>Christopher Michael Langan (born March 25, 1952) is an American whose IQ was reported to be "between 195 and 210". In Morris 2001, Langan relates that he took what was billed as "the world's most difficult IQ test" in Omni magazine, and he gives his IQ as "somewhere between 190 and 210". He has been described as "the smartest man in America" as well as "the smartest man in the world" by some journalists. Langan has developed a "theory of the relationship between mind and reality" which he calls the "Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe" (CTMU).
>Langan told Muscle Magazine that "you cannot describe the universe completely with any accuracy unless you're willing to admit that it's both physical and mental in nature" and that the CTMU "explains the connection between mind and reality, therefore the presence of cognition and universe in the same phrase". He calls his proposal "a true 'Theory of Everything', a cross between John Archibald Wheeler's 'Participatory Universe' and Stephen Hawking's 'Imaginary Time' theory of cosmology." In conjunction with his ideas, Langan has claimed: "You can prove the existence of God, the soul and an afterlife, using mathematics."
>The CTMU theory has been criticized for its use of convoluted language. Langan's use of terms he has invented (or redefined) has made his exposition obscure. Some suggest this is deliberate.
>Langan has said elsewhere that he does not belong to any religious denomination, explaining that he "can't afford to let [his] logical approach to theology be prejudiced by religious dogma". He calls himself "a respecter of all faiths, among peoples everywhere".

/lit/ is for the discussion of literature, specifically books (fiction & non-fiction), short stories, poetry, creative writing, etc. If you want to discuss history, religion, or the humanities, go to /his/. If you want to discuss politics, go to /pol/. Philosophical discussion can go on either /lit/ or /his/, but ideally those discussions of philosophy that take place on /lit/ should be based around specific philosophical works to which posters can refer.
Check the wiki, the catalog, and the archive before asking for advice or recommendations, and please refrain from starting new threads for questions that can be answered by a search engine.
/lit/ is a slow board! Please take the time to read what others have written, and try to make thoughtful, well-written posts of your own. Bump replies are not necessary.
