For those that like the old tales, like what Bilbo Baggins was interested in (I'm not agreeing that he was mad, no), there is a meeting group of folks to talk about such.
They meet Saturdays at 8 pm Bywater time, in Elrond's house... heavens, so far away.
Send a letter to Mistress Naerrin if you're interested. (I know Miss Molee Kettle is very interested!)
