Our Tolkien reading group has been reading together for three years! We‘ve been through some changes, from #LotRChapterADay to #YearOfTolkien to now #FellowshipOfTolkien with many different people joining in for a time. The main square shows the books we‘ve read together from beginning to now, the lower left is our current read, and the others around the outside are books I‘ve read alongside. The column on the right are all nonfiction.

JazzFeathers What a great celebration! I'm so happy to be part of this group. This is a journey that is giving me a lot and in so many ways. And l'd have never done it alone. Tolkien was right, the people who travel with you make the journey 😊💙 2y
Daisey @JazzFeathers I would have never made it through all of these on my own either, and I‘m so glad to have such a great group to read and discuss them with! 2y
Hamlet Congratulations! I haven‘t been part of your reading group, but I own & have read all the books you‘ve listed; I share in your delight. There are many more wonderful books ahead of you! 2y

Daisey @Hamlet Thanks! I am so looking forward to reading the rest of the History of Middle-Earth books as well more books. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa It looks so impressive put together like that! It‘s amazing where 1 Chapter a day (with a few breaks) and good company can get you. (edited) 2y
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes, it really adds up when you read consistently. I don‘t think I‘ll be able to fit another year of reading into a single graphic. 2y

Reading the Appendixes now. Though to be honest, l'd be totally prepared to go back an read it again from the beginning!

It broke my heart, this time, and still it gave me a lot of hope. That's how good it is.

😭😭😭😭

I know. It is, after all, an ending on a positive note, but...

#FellowshipOfTolkien #LotRChapterADay

I didn't remember Saruman's passing to be so melancholy.
That look toward the West (toward home, you may say) made me almost sad.

And on this note, l don't remember ever noticing this great partecipation of the Valar to the end of the War of the Ring... because that's what l take that wind from the West to be: a manifastation of the Valar in Middle-Earth.

#FellowshipOfTolkien #LotRChapterADay

The sense of the coming end and of something lost forever was so very strong this time.
Like Sam, l more than ever wish there would be a different end for Frodo.
And still, l know there can be no other, because the story is grounded in reality.
It isn't a fairy tale with a happy ending.

The chapter of Eowyn and Faramir's love blooming in the Shadow broke my heart, this time round.
And it never occured to me, but that's exactly Tolkien's experience, who married Edith just before heading out to war.

"And when Sam heard that he laughed aloud for sheer delight, and he stood up and cried: 'O great glory and splendour! And all my wishes have come true!' And then he wept."

Sam's innocence is so heartwarming.
It is precious, especially in this moment.

BookwormAHN Sam so deserved that 😻 3y

March was a bit slow for me (can‘t imagine why, lots of time at home, but too much news time 🙄).

So 7 reads for me: 5 books, 2 comics.

Finished up the end of my ongoing #LOTRChapterADay with the #FellowshipOfTolkien

Caught up with the Discworld reading group #PratchettPosse or #OokBOokClub

And otherwise caught up with an ongoing series that I was behind on, basically good old-fashioned escapism.

3 carrying over into April

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @squirrelbrain @Butterfinger Thank you, it‘s just layered images using an app called Over and text.... plus some green for Saint Patty‘s and Spring. 3y
wordslinger42 Will we be reading Morgoth's Ring soon? 😊 I'd love to join in again for the histories! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 I think that‘s the plan, not sure of the start date though. I know @JazzFeathers got her copy, but I don‘t think @Daisey has hers yet. 3y
JazzFeathers I have my copy and l think l'll finish the Appendixes of The Lord of the Rings before the week ends. And l think it's my turn for the schedule 😜 3y
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers @wordslinger42 I have ordered a copy, so it just depends on current shipping times. 3y
wordslinger42 @JazzFeathers @Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I just ordered my copy, but it won't be here until April 24th! If you all have your copies sooner, I can always play catch-up 😊 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 I know they are prioritizing necessary shipments from most places...so I‘m not surprised. We‘ll see how @Daisey makes out. And if it‘s ok with @JazzFeathers, I‘m fine waiting until everyone has their copy. (edited) 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @eanderson @BookwormAHN we are planning on carrying on with the histories, so if you don‘t have Morgoth‘s Ring, and want to order it...I just wanted to let you know. 3y
Daisey I ordered from a different source than usual in an attempt to get my copy sooner, but still not sure when that will be. I‘ll let you know when it arrives. I‘m also good with waiting until everyone that‘s interested gets their copy. 3y
BookwormAHN I have my copy. Fortunately I ordered it about a month ago. I'm ready whenever y'all are and I'm fine waiting awhile until we all have copies. 3y
JazzFeathers Me too. No problem waiting for everyone to get their copy, so we can all start together 😊 3y
