** Sign up NOW for The Hobbit discussion, to begin July 9! ** Can't Post

My sincerest apologies for disappearing in the middle of my chapter on Rosebury. I had a very difficult and challenging spring, but I'm happy to report that everything's fine now.

Following is the proposed schedule for The Hobbit. As in our previous discussions, a discussion leader may make as many posts as he/she deems necessary to stimulate discussion on important issues in the week's chapter.

When you sign up to lead a week of discussion, please note your selection in the subject line of your response, so that everyone can see which chapters have been selected.

1. An Unexpected Party 末 July 9-15
2. Roast Mutton 末 July 16-22
3. A Short Rest 末 July 23-29
4. Over Hill and Under Hill 末 July 30-August 5
5. Riddles in the Dark 末 August 6-12
6. Out of the Frying-Pan into the Fire 末 August 13-19
7. Queer Lodgings 末 August 20-26
8. Flies and Spiders 末 August 27-Sept 2
9. Barrels Out of Bond 末 Sept 3-9
10. A Warm Welcome 末 Sept 10-16
11. On the Doorstep 末 Sept 17-23
12. Inside Information 末 Sept 24-30
13. Not at Home 末 Oct 1-7
14. Fire and Water 末 Oct 8-14
15. The Gathering of the Clouds 末 Oct 15-21

The week of Nov. 19-25 will be for open discussion of the entire book. The movie's premiere is set for Nov. 28, worldwide opening Dec. 12!

The Last Stage [In reply to] Can't Post

I've looked at it, and have absolutely no idea how to go about it, but this is when I might have free time.
I hope that by November I will come up with some ideas.

Inside Information, if you please... [In reply to] Can't Post

Chapter XII being one of my favorites.

Please visit my blog...The Dark Elf File...a slighty skewed journal of music and literary comment, fan-fiction and interminable essays.

....unless anyone else particularly wants it. If they do I could lead an earlier chapter but a later one would be difficult.

Roast Mutton please, but [In reply to] Can't Post

could someone remind me about a week out? My record for pulling these things together on time (if at all) is blemished to say the least. I have tried to change my errant ways, I really have... still I would greatly appreciate a reminder if anyone would be so kind.
