“The Hobbit” Read-Along

As you all should know and be unbelievably excited about, the first installment of The Hobbit trilogy directed by Peter Jackson will be released in U.S. theaters December 14 of this year, 2012. In honor of that, I and nine other excellent bloggers conducted a Read-Along: from September 25 to November 27, one of us posted about a subsequent chapter of J.R.R. Tolkien’s seminal fantasy novel The Hobbit.
