This weekend the Dallas Museum of Art is have a 30 hour marathon, with, among other things, a marathon reading of The Hobbit (interspersed with teh movies at midnight).

If anyone cares, I'm reading a section from chapter six (rescue from the trees by eagles), at roughly 10:50 to 11:10 Friday evening.
