Volunteers needed for Hobbit reading marathon
In celebration of what is arguably one of the most widely read and loved tales of the past 75 years, Margie’s Book Nook is hosting a Hobbit marathon from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 22 and David Teeter, Book Nook manager, is looking for readers to volunteer their time reading a segment of the story.
The hope is to complete the entire novel by closing time at 5 p.m.
Although there will be plenty of children’s games and activities, Teeter hopes people will also spend time reading and listening to the story as it’s read aloud throughout the day.
Teeter said, “The Hobbit is not really a kids’ story. Mainly the day is just about having fun and an excuse to read The Hobbit all day long.”
