Why are you reading this book?
My group of friends who introduce each other to beloved children’s books have finally chosen something that I already know and love! This is my third or fourth time through this book. We’ll be discussing it sometime this month.
What is the first line?
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.
Describe the book in haiku form:
Bilbo’s big mistakes:

Anything else you’d like to say?
I love this story – and the other hobbit adventures – because it’s about the accidental hero, someone who doesn’t actually believe he’s up for these challenges and yet who continues to surprise himself with wisdom and courage and strength.
