All right, nerds, let's do this!

When I first read LOTR (so many years ago now, good Lord!), I didn't get Tom Bombadil- who was he? Why the heck was this twee little thing intruding on what I thought would be a cool, dark adventure story? I have to say I've never quite warmed to Tom over the years, but here's hoping that this re-read of his adventures shows me something new! #FellowshipOfTolkien #TolkienBirthdayToast

emz711 I love that! 2mo
JazzFeathers Tom Bombadil is really such an elusive character. Took me several reread to become fascinate with him. 2mo
JazzFeathers And what's that book about the Inkling? 🤩 2mo

Andrea313 @JazzFeathers I've had it several years and am finally getting around to reading it! Find it here: 2mo
JazzFeathers @Andrea313 Is it goo? I'd love to read something about the Inklings. This isn't the one by Carpenter, is it? I do have that one, but I haven't read it yet. 2mo
Andrea313 @JazzFeathers This one is by Phillip and Carol Zeleski. I like it so far! If you've read a lot about the Inklings, it could be redundant info, but so far I'm enjoying it. 2mo

I love when it's finally time to open up that book that's been sitting on your shelf for years! I don't know how or why the "right" time presents itself, but who am I to question it? Digging into this title with some brandy-spiked eggnog. Bibliotherapy indeed! #CurrentlyReading #BooksAndBooze #bibliotherapy

LeahBergen I‘m so much like that as to which book “falls” off my shelves into my hands. 👍 2mo

This is a brilliant collection. Gerry's poems evoke and reflect on the joy and pain of life in his unique Scouse voice. Me and my family are going through a really crappy time at the moment and this book was exactly what I needed. This is what poetry should be. Can't wait to read 6A Blackstock Gardens. #BooksAndBooze

"She poured some rum into a glass, added some sugar, left in the spoon so that the glass didn't shatter and added boiling water.
- A slice of lemon?
- No."

Well I haven't earned my hot rum by attending a murder scene in the pouring rain, but it seemed rude not to join Maigret in a bracing drink. Cheers ?

Afternoon reading in the pub. Can't beat it. Better leave that pint to settle for a minute, mind. #BooksAndBooze
