October 2012 (trip to Italy) The Hobbit or There and Back Again by J.R.R Tolkien. I probably should have read this long ago, but I didn't. My daughters have read it, and they want me to go with them to see the movie. So, I bought a copy and tossed it in my backpack for our pilgrimage to Italy.

What can I write that has not been said before about this book? I loved it, and now I am ready for the movie and ready to read the Lord of the Rings.
