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

Having a hard time moving through this one. It's a library book and I'm feeling a bit defeated thinking that even if I renew it I may not finish it in time. Everything is slipping through my memory as I try to hang on (even with note-taking, referencing, etc). It's such a big world! I would love to see it be a movie or show with each chapter as a long episode.

The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien

🌿Happy #middleearthmarch 🌿

This is part of my tiny collection. I forgot about some of my items and also this picture had to be cropped for Litsy.

This month, I'm reading the entire #lordoftherings series for the first time. Being a fan of the films for most of my life, I have only ever read The Hobbit. It's so exciting to finally read the original material that's been such an important part of my life! #jrrtolkien #middleearth #thehobbit

Roary47 Man that is an awesome goal! 11mo
SeaToSkyes @Roary47 thank you!! ☺️ 11mo

The Nature of Middle-Earth | J. R. R. Tolkien

Got this at Vroman‘s in Pasadena, California. I read it as I waited for my sister‘s training to finish. Amazing read, although I definitely will need to read it a few times for full comprehension. 😂 #tolkien #jrrtolkien #middleearth #thehobbit #thelordoftherings

I thought my #FellowshipOfTolkien group might find this interesting…. https://www.tor.com/2021/06/10/tolkiens-orcs-boldog-and-the-host-of-tumult/?prev...

Oh, and PS… are we still thinking of tackling Kullervo later this month?

BookwormAHN Nice article and I thought we were going to start on our anniversary on July 18th. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BookwormAHN Oh! You‘re right! I thought it was June 18th for some reason, but now that I see this, you‘re right it‘s July. 2y

Daisey Really interesting article! Also while we‘re checking in, is it my turn to work out a schedule? If so, I have my copy and will add that to my to list. 2y
JazzFeathers I know Jeff very well. He's such a great Tolkien fan 😃 2y
JazzFeathers @Daisey l don't remember who did the last schedule. This says it's really too long since we read together 😆 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I‘m pretty sure you did the last schedule for the last Histories of Middle Earth, but I know you and @Daisey read one since (places that inspired Tolkien I believe), but I‘m not sure who did a schedule for that. 2y
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I‘ll work on one! Starting July 18, correct? 2y
JazzFeathers @Daisey Yes, July 18th 😊 2y

The Silmarillion | J.R.R. Tolkien

“... and a sound arose of endless interchanging melodies woven in harmony that passed beyond hearing into the depths and into the heights, and the places of the dwelling of Ilúvatar were filled to overflowing, and the music and the echo of the music went out into the Void, and it was not void.”

The History of Middle-Earth Index | Christopher Tolkien

Now my History of Middle-earth collection is truly completed 😊

post image


And so it's over 🥺
With this book, we complete the History of Middle-earth. I feel accomished, but also sad that the journey it's over. It was more then two years, and such an awarding, enriching journey. I enjoy every word.

But l hope my fellow travellers of Middle-earth will want to go on, on more andventures 😜

@Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey @wordslinger42 @BookwormAHN

wordslinger42 I still haven't finished! I feel so bad that I couldn't keep up with the schedule. I'll definitely be reading lots of Tolkien this fall once I start grad school! And I'm always happy to do readalongs with you ladies 😊 2y
JazzFeathers @wordslinger42 l read about your grad school on Instagram. I'm so excited for you! Maybe we can read together some of 'your' books 😜 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 Good luck with Grad School! And I just finally finished myself the other day....so I was way behind too. 2y

BookwormAHN @wordslinger42 Good luck with Grad School 👏🏻 I'm looking forward to continuing reading with y'all! 2y
wordslinger42 @JazzFeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BookwormAHN Thank you so much!! It's called Signum University and my focus is Tolkien Studies 😊😊 I'll be reading The Annotated Hobbit and The History of the Hobbit (again 😅) this fall! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 You‘ve done the pre-reading already! (edited) 2y
Daisey @wordslinger42 Congratulations on grad school. Somehow I missed that announcement. The Tolkien Society of KC works with Signum quite a bit so I‘ve heard a few of their professors as speakers. Enjoy! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m reading Narnia at the moment (the other Inkling), but that should be finished in July. I have a few ready & waiting when we are ready. (edited) 2y
BookwormAHN @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Also reading Narnia presently but The Story of Kullervo sounds good @Daisey @wordslinger42 @JazzFeathers 2y
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BookwormAHN @JazzFeathers I am absolutely ready to continue reading more when everyone else is. I haven‘t had time for Narnia, but keep thinking I might still try to join. I‘ve read Kullervo and would love to read it with this group! 2y
JazzFeathers @BookwormAHN @Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 l'm ready to continue reading too. Kullervo sounds great! I'm sorry l couldn't join n Narnia, but April was crazy. But if it goes on until July, maybe l can still try. I meant to read it for ages. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers You could definitely catch up, they are reading a chapter a day, with about a week in between books, I‘m just sitting down and reading the whole book over a weekend, they are much shorter than Tolkien‘s and you‘d be able to jump in and catch-up pretty easily. I‘m on book 3 now. (Oh, and we are reading them in Publication Order) 2y
wordslinger42 @JazzFeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey @BookwormAHN I would love to read Kullervo with you all! I already have a copy, too 😊 Do we want to read it this summer? 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 Would this summer work for you in you schedule? If so, that‘s fine by me. 2y
BookwormAHN This summer works for me 😺 2y
wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa This summer would be perfect! The book is short enough that we could possibly be done before my fall semester begins! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 Do you think you can finish up Peoples of Middle Earth in May or June, and then we‘ll read this one in late June/July before your classes start again? 2y
JazzFeathers We could start on 18 July, which will be our fourth annyversary. Can you believe it???? 2y
JazzFeathers @Daisey have you seen this conversation? 2y
Daisey @JazzFeathers Yes, I saw it a few days ago and have been following. Reading Kullervo this summer sounds great! 2y
wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa With the craziness of work, I'm not going to worry about finishing Peoples of Middle Earth before we start our next read! We could start on July 18th (four years?!?!) if that works for everyone, but I could also start sooner! @JazzFeathers @Daisey @BookwormAHN 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Wow! Four years! I love that starting date idea! 2y

Loved this beginning of incomplete story.
I would have lived to see a story from the perspective of the Wild People of Middle-earth. After The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien seems to be fascinated with different perspective.
Pity he never completed this story.

Daisey Agreed! I found this an interesting concept as well. 2y
