Please begin reading The Hobbit, including the introduction.
Have at least three chapters read for Thursdays class.

We are looking at CHARACTER in this book. As your read, HIGHLIGHT/STICKY NOTES about Bilbo’s character.
Some of these questions will be harder to answer with only three chapters in, but keep them in mind…we will discuss these in class, try to have at least ONE quote to share that pertains to Bilbo’s character

Does he change? Does he show his character? How?
Do Bilbo’s priorities change over the course of the story?

Have a look at the author, J R R Tolkien, and do your best to answer these questions.
