My idea here is for a group re-read of The Hobbit. Each person will take the lead for a couple of chapters, posting their thoughts on that chapter on his/her blog. The rest of us can, of course, post whatever we want on our own blogs, but will support the chapter leader with a link and comments. That sound alright?
If we do two chapters a day, starting with chapter one on the 15th, we will finish The Hobbit by Christmas. Is this too ambitious? I'll be happy to take the first two chapters for Wednesday.
