So take that with a grain of salt, I guess.

It's difficult to reconcile them, really. The books are written differently with different audiences in mind.

It's not really age. Gandalf is a Maia, he's waaaaaay old. The 60 years or whatever between the events of the Hobbit and the events of LoTR would be like saying a guy who is 60 years and 3 months is older than when he was 60 years and 2 months. Well, yeah, but...
