The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blogfest


Welcome to the Hobbit Blogfest! I know I haven’t been around the blogosphere very much lately and I do apologize for that. Life and the holidays have been keeping me very busy lately. I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe this holiday season. J
 

 

Answering these four questions will transport us on an unexpected journey:

What is your favorite hobbit characteristic/or the one that you think closely resembles you . . .? 

I love how happy hobbits are! They enjoy life and from the looks of things, they know how to throw a super awesome party!

If you could choose between a scrumptious second breakfast and a perilous unexpected journey – which would you prefer?

A perilous unexpected journey of course! What better place to find a good story to write about! J

Have you ever left behind something on a journey (expected or unexpected) and wished you could have it over and over again? (A pocket handkerchief?)

Oh yes! My toothbrush!

What is your Favorite part or quote from the book that you hope will be in the movie?

The dinner party scene! “Chip the cups and crack the plates! That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!”

As a kid I grew up listening to my dad reading The Hobbit to my brother and I at bedtime and watching the 1977 cartoon version by Rankin/Bass. One of my favorite things about the movie was the music. Enjoy! ^^ J

  3. When I was a kid I got my cousin's desk as a hand me down, and he'd left his copy of THE HOBBIT in there. It's a small paperback edition, lovely and floppy and well-loved. It's probably my favourite-feeling book of all those I own. :)

  4. I saw the cartoon, too! I enjoy how happy the hobbits are and a great answer to the perilous journey vs. breakfast.
