This December, the first part of The Hobbit movie hits theaters, and since the last time I read it was just before The Two Towers hit the theaters. So I am determined to have a reread before the movie opens. Would anyone care to make it a read-along of it with me?
Based off the mass market paperback that I have (0-345-33968-1), if it was broken into around 45 pages a week, it could be done in 7 weeks. By around 45 pages, its what chapter that 45th page since the end of the previous end chapter falls that would be read through. In most cases 2-3 chapters a week. Seems reasonable, and provides time for other reading. And easy for anyone using an audio or ebook version to keep track.
If this is a go, I am thinking about starting it the beginning of October. At seven weeks, this would put the last discussion at the end of November. The other option would be start in September and finishing around Halloween.
If you'd be interested in joining, please leave a short note, and if you have a preference of October or September (either way, stuck in the wake of some holiday or the other). And please share the post to anyone you think will be interested. I'll use the hashtag #Hobbitreadalong on Twitter to keep an eye on interest.
