I've got tickets already purchased for a Saturday matinee showing of Part I. I'm excited to have a date with sweet hubby. I'm excited to have a babysitter lined up. I'm excited to spend some time with friends before they move to Arizona. It should be good.
I remember reading the book as a kid. My dad had a copy on the bookshelf, along with the Lord of the Rings. It was the thickest book I had picked up at that point. And it was great! I skipped almost all of the stuff about Aragorn when I read Lord of the Rings, but read every word of Hobbit. I hope the movie lives up to the story.
What about you? Have you read it? Going to see the movie?
