The Company in Lake-town

Yes, the experiences of Thorin's Company in Esgaroth were much more pleasant in the book than they were in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Two weeks of comfortable rest and recovery before Thorin starts making preparations to depart versus sudden capture, fast talking and a hurried celebration before seemingly departing the next day (or possibly two days later if it was an exceptionally long party).

With both the Shire Reckoning and the New Reckoning of King Elessar there is a gap between the end of the Third Age and the start of the Fourth, but the gap is of different length in the two calendars. Tolkien wrote in LotR Appendix B that on the Shire-date of 2 Yule, 1422 (S.R.) "the Fourth Age began in the count of years in the Shire; but the numbers of the years of Shire Reckoning were continued." In Appendix D Tolkien tells us: "The Fourth Age was held to have begun with the departure of Master Elrond, which took place in September 3012; but for purposes of record in the Kingdom Fourth Age 1 was the year that began according to the New Reckoning in March 25, 3021, old style."
