Fuse #8’s unscientific poll featuring the Top 100 Chapter Books featured another one of my favorite books today: THE HOBBIT. It was ninth on my list, but on another day, I might have put it higher. It created a deep and abiding love in my heart for Gandalf the Grey. The day that the Fellowship of the Ring traveled through Moria in THE LORD OF THE RINGS really hit me hard.
