Yay! #FellowshipofTolkien #LotRChapteraDay I was able to catch up just now. Gandalf is back! We are safe for now as everyone rests. We meet Arwen who Strider seems to have a connection with. Bilbo is also present and they feast. @JazzFeathers @Daisey
I couldn‘t sleep so I came to read #LotRChapteraDay #FellowshipofTolkien out on the couch to deal with my heartburn in a sitting position. The cats joined me. 🥰 #CatsofLitsy Our Fellowship leaves (after Breakfast.. of course) to continue their journey. The hobbits learn more of the Black Riders from their new companion. Strider tells them a Middle Earth story, and they find themself in danger. Frodo uses the ring 😱. @Daisey @JazzFeathers
Yesterdays chapter for #LotRChapteraDay #FellowshipofTolkien we have Strider join the party. While everyone‘s not super sure he is trustworthy strider himself learns that Gandalf is a mutual friend of everyone in the fellowship. My Gandalf wanted to photobomb today. #catsoflitsy 😻🥰💛
Today in #fellowshipoftolkien #lotrchapteraday our travelers take a break from the trail to eat, and relax. However, they are still on edge that others are tailing them and Frodo goes by an alias. Some are suspicious that he is not who he says he is. @Daisey @JazzFeathers
I did read #FellowshipofTolkien yesterday #LotRingsChapteraDay I honestly don‘t remember Tom and his upbeat, always singing, character. I was surprised that Frodo without question showed him the ring. Plus was concerned after when Tom took it away from him and Frodo had to check it was the same one. I‘m not sure if Tom is a good or bad character after that. Are the hobbits trapped in another snare? @Daisey @JazzFeathers
It‘s been 30+ years since I read this. After reading The Hobbit for book club a couple months ago I knew I wanted to read LOTR again and was excited to see #LoTRChapterADay posted. So I‘d like to join in. Got the forward and prologue done and looking forward to chapter 1 tomorrow. #fellowshipofTolkien @Daisey
Yay! #FellowshipofTolkien #LotRChapteraDay is back on! Today (30 minutes before midnight) I was able to read the Notes and Foreword provided in my edition. It just makes me appreciate what I‘m about to read more on how Tolkien revised A LOT to give us the best of his work. Plus the patience he must have had is commendable. Ready for the prologue tomorrow. 😊💛 @Daisey @JazzFeathers #CatsofLitsy (This is Earl. He is my nieces after being fixed)
When I was 11 or 12, my dad gifted me a single volume edition of the Lord of the Rings, illustrated by Alan Lee.
And I‘ve read it almost every year since then.

That is all.

We have decided to keep two cats from the litter we found. I‘ve been missing my cat who crossed the rainbow bridge a few months ago. Gandalf has been cuddling me a lot while reading the past week and a half. I may have begged for him. 🙏🏼🥺😂💛 #catsoflitsy
I can identify with the hobbits, specifically with Frodo and Sam. In the beginning of the book Frodo really doesn't want to go to Mordor and he's frustrated that fate put the Ring in his hands. He just wants to stay home, eat food and be happy, not go on some adventure. I can relate to wanting to just stay home and chill, but having something unpleasant in your life that's out of your control and prevents you from just enjoying yourself.
Me: I need to be really careful with money until I'm sure I've got some work lined up... this is going to mean that I can only make purchases that are absolutely necessary...

Me: oh crap...
My “big book” for 2023 with my mom is Tolkien‘s trilogy, which I‘ve never read. I loved The Hobbit, which we read together a few years ago. It‘s such a cultural touchstone and I‘m late, but finally coming to the party, by way of this decrepit set my library gave away.

Today it‘s National Christmas Movie Marathon Day. So for today‘s Daily Challenge post any combination of your Favourite Christmas Movie, your favourite book to movie or the book(s) that should be made into movies.
For me it still takes a lot to beat It‘s A Wonderful Life 😢😭, loved the Lord of the Rings Films, and think the Ben Hope Series by Scott Mariani would be great films.
It‘s a dangerous business, reading memes while drinking tea
