#FellowshipofTolkien friends, it has been a very Tolkien day! Not only did I start my day by reading Tolkien, but I ended it by attending a gathering of the Tolkien Society of Kansas City for the annual Toast to the Professor. I hope to attend more events in the future, but the distance makes it unlikely I will participate as much as I might like.

Texreader Sounds marvelous. Tonight my son and I finished watching LOTR extended edition, again. 2w
Daisey @Texreader It was! After all the talk about both the books and movies last night, as well as starting a reread of The Fellowship, I think I may need to watch that movie today. 2w
SilverButtonBooks I‘m so jealous. I wonder if there is anything like this where I live? 2w

Daisey @SilverButtonBooks I never thought about it until @JazzFeathers mentioned the group she is a part of and I looked up the Tolkien Society. It turns out there are various groups scattered around the world. https://www.tolkiensociety.org/society/smials/ 2w
Amandajoy Where are you at? I‘m in Omaha and have been trying to find area Littens to do a meet up with. I would head to KC, there‘s a bookshop there I want to go to. 2w
JazzFeathers That sounds like a fantastic day, @Daisey! Being part of a face-to-face group is such a great experience. I'm happy you've found one near you. And yes, l need to watch the films again, too 😆 2w
Daisey @Amandajoy I actually live east of KC, and chose this event to attend because it was not quite as far away as some of the others I‘ve heard about. We did have a #KCLitsyMeetup a couple years ago, but I have not heard any plans for another. Just out of curiosity, what bookstore? 2w
Amandajoy It‘s Rainy Day Books. I‘ve heard it‘s a cute bookstore. 2w
Daisey @Amandajoy I‘ve heard good things about that one too but haven‘t made it there. 2w
wordslinger42 I've thought about joining the Tolkien Society, but haven't done it yet! I also doubt I'd be able to make it to many events! 2w
Daisey @wordslinger42 Luckily, the KC group is pretty informal. I have been following their social media for almost a year and chose this event as a good way to check it out in person. I‘m glad I did and plan to attend some more, but it‘s at least an hour drive to any, so it probably still won‘t be often. 2w

Today‘s #bokhaul! The Queen of Blood is from our #KCLitsyMeetup today, and I‘ll be adding some more books from our discussion to my TBR. Then I stopped to browse Half-Price Books on the way home. I picked up a copy of Don Quixote so I can attempt it at some point for #1001books, and another Tolkien book I don‘t yet have on my shelves.

Chelleo Great bookmark and nice haul!! 2y
Daisey @Chelleo Thanks! @BookFreakOut made the perfect bookmarks for our meet up. 2y
tpixie Great #BookHaul ! Those bookmarks are great !! @BookFreakOut 2y
Chelleo Nicely done, @BookFreakOut 2y
