The Tolkien Reader | J. R. R. Tolkien
post image

“The strangest strangers turn out to know it and we talk about Gandalf and mad Gollum and the bridge of Khazad-dûm while the party or classroom or the train rattled along unheard. Old friends rediscover it, as I do-to browse through any book of the Ring trilogy is to get hooked once more into the whole legend-and we talk of it at once as though we had read just read it for the first time“ -Peter S Beagle,the forward.❤️YES❤️#lordoftherings #tolkien

#GratefulReads #memoir (Day 24).

A few of my favorite memoirs: H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald, Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy, and Surprised by Joy by C.S. Lewis. Can you guess which one I don't own?

Bilbo's Last Song | J.R.R. Tolkien
post image

I've had the pocket edition of "Bilbo's Last Song" for a while, and it's one of my favourite entries in the Middle-earth canon. The original full-size edition I bought the other day to enjoy Baynes's artwork the better. First discovery is that the full title is "Bilbo's Last Song (At the Grey Havens)", the second that there is a middle register of paintings of Bilbo in various attitudes of reverie removed from the pocket edition. ??

Bookwomble By juggling the picture elements about, the roundels are printed at about the same size in both editions, but the vignettes in the lower register are larger in the original format. I'm so glad I decided to buy it, despite a slight hesitation about duplicating yet another book! 3w

The History of the Lord of the Rings | John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien
post image

And so it's over. After seven months of journey (we started on 5 April and finished on 27 October) The History of the Lord of the Rings is over 😭

It was such an incredible, enriching, emotional, insightful journey. And all the more fantastic thanks to my awesome #FellowshipOfTolkien travel buddies.

Now let me curle up in a corner and mourne for a little while 😢
Fortunatly, we'll go on another #MiddleEarth adventure soon 😊

Don‘t #CountMeOut of this group, but I am not a Tolkien fan. I read The Hobbit years ago, and it was such a struggle. Lord of the Rings holds no fascination for me. I‘m glad there is a huge fan base, but he‘s just not for me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #SoaringScores

Readswithcoffee You are not alone! I couldn‘t even make it halfway through The Hobbit. 2mo
Librarybelle @Readswithcoffee Thanks! I had to read The Hobbit for a class so definitely had to finish it. It‘s been years, but I just know it‘s not for me. 2mo
Cinfhen I‘m WITH you, too 👯‍♀️ 2mo

Lcsmcat 🙋🏻‍♀️ me too. I much prefer C S Lewis. 2mo
Jaimelire I must have tried reading “The Hobbit” three times before I finally got into it. But then in my mid twenties I got hooked and ended up reading all the books and loving them. (edited) 2mo
CrowCAH Nice way to interpret your he theme for today. 2mo
Librarybelle @Jaimelire That‘s how I was with The Scarlet Letter. I couldn‘t stand it the first couple times I read it, but then I fell in love with it. 2mo

I have this habit of keeping old calendars because I think I will do something with the images that I like, but more often than not I don‘t end up doing anything. This is my office calendar from last year, which is still sitting in my office wasting space. But at least it‘s good fodder for today‘s #October prompt!

TK-421 I do the same thing! I have a plastic storage tub full of old calendars that I keep meaning to go through to decide which images I want to keep... Instead I just keep adding calendars to it year after year 😳 2mo
Kimberlone @TK-421 thankfully I only have a few ones stocked up! 2mo
Tereses Me too 2mo
