The sign swinging above the shop entrance had a fancy quill painted on it, poised above an open book. “But we were going to get lunch!” Pippin complained as Merry pulled him inside.

“In a minute, Pip,” Merry replied. He had heard Frodo telling Sam that morning that he was nearly out of ink.

Merry scoured the shelves, and found a book on Gondor’s history as well as a bottle of ink made of delicately shaped crystal. Frodo would be quite happy, Merry thought as he paid and followed Pippin outside again. “All right, Pippin. Now we’ll go find lunch.”
