In January 2023, I completed 12 books including the tagged Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien that I‘ve been slowly working my way through for almost a year and a half. It was well worth the time and effort and completed a bingo! I read 2 of my #Roll100 selections and 3 #1001books in the mix as well. It was a good month!

I‘m not really a sports fan, so I snuck in the last few letters during halftime of the Chiefs game while out with friends much more intent on the game and game discussion. This is a book I‘m so glad to have in ebook form since I doubt I will read it cover to cover again, but I will love being able to look up specific references. It is amazing to get Tolkien‘s own perspective on so many topics.

marleed I‘m in a big ‘ol text string stretching from Kansas to Montana during every Chiefs game so it‘s hard to sneak in even a page of a book! 1w
Daisey @marleed It‘s a good thing I finished early because even I couldn‘t stop watching the second half! 1w

I have to say, it is a lovely book, with some very interesting recipes ☺️

Lindy Are you planning to try any of the recipes? 1mo
JazzFeathers @Lindy l certainly will. There's one for shortbread with molasses. Molasses is not common here in Italy. I found it the first time in my life in an organic shop last month and l want to try it. But I'm sure I'll make other recipes too. 4w
Lindy @JazzFeathers I remember trying to find molasses when I was living in France—and I wasn‘t successful. 4w

I can resist everything but temptation!

A friend of mine sent me some photos of this book.
I'll have to say l did resist a whole 5 minutes before l ordered it 😌

Daisey Just now seeing this post . . . a friend gave this to me for Christmas. I‘ve been perusing and considering some recipes to try. 2w
JazzFeathers @Daisey What recipes are you considering? We may do a contest 😜 2w
Daisey @JazzFeathers So far, I've only marked the spiced cranberry & pear muffins (although I may use apples) to make soon and the strawberry & lavender shortcakes for early this summer when strawberries are in season. 2w
JazzFeathers @Daisey l will check those. They sound yammy 😁 2w

#FellowshipOfTolkien

Just finished.
The last letter always mists my eyes 🥺
This is such a wonderful book. Not only an imaginative collection of letters full of stories (as you would imagine) but above all, a collection of love letters from a father to his children. It moves me every time thinking about the hours and hours of work Tolkien must have put in to write these letters to his children.
It always warms my heart 💖

Susanita I loved this! Especially the rivalry between the Elf and the bear. 1mo
JazzFeathers @Susanita It's a fantastic book. I enjoy it every time. 1mo

I had forgotten how beautiful this letter is.
It's ful of stories, but between the lines, we can feel a dad's love for his children.
I love it.

And while reading, l thought that in 1932 Tolkien must have still been telling Bilbo's stories to his children and l wondered about the cave adventure.

It's always such a pleasure to read this book.
