When I was reading yesterday, I realized that the individual book is only around 200 pages long, but when I was reading Hobbit, It was 289 pages long, but the text was larger and there were fewer words. Lord of the Rings has more words and smaller text.

The book is great so far, I never realized how long it took for Frodo to leave the Shire.

Been messing around the with app, I‘ve read this in the past but decided I want to track only what I read since joining litsy. How do I delete books from my stack? Also, when I add a competed book, why aren‘t my number of pages I‘ve read going up? Cheers all!

It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.

I feel that some of the most profound quotes & imagery come from the detailed writings of J.R.R. Tolkien ?
Fellowship of the Ring
"Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."

These are my favorite books. They‘re beautifully written & drag me into a world of fantasy, emotion, and characters I fall in love with, root for, and feel with. I‘ve been reading them since high school and it‘s time for my yearly read -starting with the Fellowship and ending with The Hobbit (weird, I know). Reopening these books is like re-meeting old friends and discovering bits and pieces I‘ve somehow overlooked in previous readings.

"The world indeed is full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater. " -J.R.R. Tolkien

It's a beautiful day today. And I'm feeling grateful.

This has been in my #tbrlist for waaaaaay too long. About 20 pages in...
So far not a lot of plot, but an insane amount of backstory, that left me slightly confused.
The main story is about to start, and I think it will pick up then..

Are y'all fans of The Hobbit/LotR?

Andrew65 I read The Hobbit many years ago but hadn‘t read LOTR before watching the stupendous films! Aimed to read the books this year but failed on that one! Have read the first one and am approaching halfway in the second one. 2y
DivaDiane Yes!!! Read them all before the movies came out. 2y

#lotrchapteraday Reading the parts about Lorien I love that the Company sleeps in trees the first night and that Golum sneaks up the tree. Kind of scary. I love Gimli and Legolas' friendship. The crossing the river on ropes, that would have been fun to see in the movie.

Varshitha @Lola It has been on my TBR for quiet a long time as well, I hope I can stick to the #lengthylit schedule and finish reading it this time.. 2y
Varshitha @Foragingfantasy Thanks!! Compared to IT, It does look small.. The paper quality of the book is not great, that's one of the reason it looks so tiny 2y

Hour Twelve challenge! 1. Any audiobook with a full cast is sure to keep me engaged, and The Golden Compass is one of the best! 2. A good thriller will also keep my interest for a long period of time, and I enjoyed both In a Dark, Dark Wood and Woman in Cabin 10 narrated by Imogen Church. 3. What's better than an epic journey to listen to on your epic journey? The Fellowship of the Ring (dramatized) is the most epic of them all! #24in48

To complete my blurb-quote-review trilogy, I've chosen my favourite of the series, books one and two, commonly published together under the title 'the Fellowship of the Ring'. The remaining books are excellent too, but this early installation is my favourite, especially bits that never made the movie, like Tom Bombadil and Goldberry, or the encounter with the Barrow-wights. Essential fantasy reading for all. #fantasy #Tolkien #classics #mustread

[DELETED] 1917488127 There are so many parts that didn't make the movies 🎥 at least according to my husband. I'm have always been hesitant about watching all of them! We have the movies but I haven't seen them all (just this one). As a HUGE LOTR fan it's hard to think of parts left out. Great read by the way! Love your edition. ❤️ 3y
Jamesfahyauthor @darknessbecomesme the LOTR movies are fairly faithful (a few characters missing and some others with seriously beefed up parts) im lookin' at you Arwen. (Literally the only thing she does in the books is sew a flag) 😂 but I didn't like the Hobbit movies at all. They were cashing in and padding like crazy. Lots of made up stuff added for no reason...blah 3y
[DELETED] 1917488127 Oh The Hobbit movies! Don't get me started my friend. How about adding characters that weren't in the book! Lol 😂 I have seen The Hobbit movies! I think you'll agree, the book is always better when it comes to classics like these. 3y

emmekamalei Tom and Goldberry are my favorite! I'm mostly glad they didn't make the movie however (despite loving the original film trilogy) as this lets them stay perfect and unsullied in my imagination. 😊 3y
Jamesfahyauthor @emmekamalei that's a very good point! (Though it was nice of them to work in a nod to Old Man Willow in a later movie. I quite enjoyed the ents)! 3y
JazzFeathers @darknessbecomesme The Hobbit movies 😒 l liked the first. I hated the second. I still haven't seen the third and don't plan to 3y
Jamesfahyauthor @JazzFeathers the first wasn't too bad (though they added lots of unnecessary stuff... it just got worse from there on in 3y
