I started reading this book on Feb. 5, 2011. I was out of town and was not able to start this post as soon as i started. I have really been enjoying this book. I will not be doing a chapter by chapter post with this book. I will be doing highlights as I go just not chapter post.
This book is a bout a hobbit named Mr. Baggins. He lives in a hillside. A wizard named Gandalf came by one day. He left a mark on Mr. Baggins front door. The next day a total of 13 dwarfs showed up to his house. The dwarfs was there waiting on Gandalf. They also cleaned up all the dirty dishes for Mr. Baggins. Also everyone spent the night at Mr. Baggins. The next morning Mr. Baggins got up trying to forget about the night before. Gandalf show Mr. Baggins a letter left for him. The he shoved him out the door for his adventure with the dwarfs. He left the house with out anything he needed. He gets to the meeting place where the dwarfs are waiting for him. They have him a pony waiting for him. He also borrows a cloak from Dwalin. They traveled for a long time. It starts to rain on them. They begin to hunt for a spot to stop for the night when they spot a fire in the far. They send Mr Baggins to see what it is. It ends up being some really grumpy Trolls. They continue to look for a place to sleep for the night.
