Better luck next week!

*And honestly Tarkin‘s been on hold at the library all month, hopefully it will show up this week for my #StarWarsBuddyRead

So much darkness in this volume as our Fellowship is split and each part travels a terrifying road through bitter hardships and battles to get just where they need to be for the next installment.

To my #FellowshipOfTolkien group...I appreciated this one so much more after reading the Silmarillion and Histories, so many events are referenced from those stories, and knowing them really enriched my reading of the story this time.

Daisey I agree! I feel like this is a much deeper read for me after reading all of the other things we‘ve read recently. I better understand so many more references and see foreshadowing more clearly. 19h
BookwormAHN Agreed 💚 19h
JazzFeathers True, eh. Having read so many of Tolkien's other work and especially his draft, this read is giving so much more than all the previous ones. I see lots and lots of foreshadowing and interconnections and hidden meaning. I'm loving it. 17h

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey @eanderson @BookwormAHN @wordslinger42 @jazzfeathers. Since I finished first does that mean I make the new schedule? 😂 and if so, do you think everyone will be caught up by March 1 or 7th to start the next book? 11h
BookwormAHN That's fine with me and the 1st or 7th is good. I'm done as well 😸 11h
Daisey I‘m a few chapters behind, but I should be caught up by next weekend. 10h

I have never noticed before all the little details that give away Gollum's plan about Shelob and scattered everywhere over these chapters.

Daisey It‘s been amazing to me on this read how many little bits of foreshadowing I catch. 2d

I'm falling desperatly behind. But l'm still going!

The Dead Marshes is one of my absolute favourite chapters in the book. It's so evocative, full of the history of Middle-Earth, and there's some awesome character developement.

Sam is really coming into himself. Frodo is slowly taking awareness of his task. Gollum is fighting with himself and his desire of the Ring.

Daisey I read just one chapter during the course of this work week. I hope to read more tonight or tomorrow. 2d
JazzFeathers @Daisey l keep falling behind. But l'll hold in it. I'm loving this part even more than the last time. 17h

I‘ve fallen shamelessly behind...I blame debates, news, and incessantly watching politics on the news and reading it on twitter. Time to get back to Sam and Frodo and catch up!

Lauraandherbooks I completely understand- I have had the same problem 😳 3d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Lauraandherbooks I‘m glad it‘s not just me... the only thing I‘ve read lately was a comic and a short (very short) story. I find myself wishing for old trusty Presidents of yore and administrations that I could ignore for months at a time and just trust they were all doing their jobs mostly fine and not have to keep tabs on them. This being up to date and knowledgeable is becoming not only a full time job but one that‘s 80+ hrs a week. 3d
Lauraandherbooks @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I know exactly what you mean- I was thinking the same thing just yesterday! Upset that more ppl aren‘t paying attention but wished I could be the same and bury my head in the sand - but I am going to try to not obsess over it so much , try to reserve some sanity 😆 3d

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Lauraandherbooks I understand...it‘s a fine line to tread between staying up to date and informed and staying mentally sane. 3d
Lauraandherbooks @Riveted_Reader_Melissa yes that‘s true- trying not to get completely sucked in is the key 😜 3d
eanderson Im about 5 chapters behind you! 🤦‍♀️ 3d

I finished early because I know I‘m going to be distracted by other books, as I was just a few days ago and was severely behind schedule. I loved this, as always! #FellowshipofTolkien
