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

The original thought was ‘there isn‘t enough time,‘ but then it is The Hobbit. The next thought was ‘I have a lot of other books to finish before the end of the year,‘ but then it is The Hobbit. The last thought was ‘It is one of my favorite books from childhood and because of that I‘ve read it more than once,‘ but oh my...IT IS THE HOBBIT!
I‘m all in for the buddy read 👉🏽 #ThereAndBackAgain and hanging out with #FellowshipOfTolkien...Yay!

akaGingerK Oh, this was my favorite book as a kid- and still up there now. December is super busy, but maybe I‘ll make time to join the adventure as well! 1w
Daisey So glad you‘re joining us on our adventure! 1w
JazzFeathers Welcome to the buddy read @Nute So happy to have you 😁 I don't mean to scare you, but that's axactly what l thought two years ago when l joined the #LotRChapterADay readalong. I don't have time, but... Two years later, l'm still reading chapters from Tolkien almost every day with my fellow #FellowshipOfTolkien ladies. This has been indeed the awesomest of journeys. 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa So glad to have you join us! The more the merrier, as all dwarves know! 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @akaGingerK It‘s just one chapter a day... #peerpressure 1w

I currently haven‘t been participating in the history reads because I don‘t have a lot of motivation. Pregnancy brain has me cornered! Lol! But I loved being apart of #yearoftolkien #lotrchapteraday #historyofthehobbit and all that goes with it! I‘m hoping at some point that there will be a reread of the middle earth series!

JazzFeathers We are planning to reread The Lord of the Rings when we'll be finished with the History of the Lord of the Rings. Still a few months to go, l'd say. Drop in whenever you want, gal. Even to just say hello 😁 5mo

Originally Frodo Baggins was Bingo Baggins. Thank God Tolkien changed it. I don't think I could of taken Bingo seriously. Fortunately the character of Frodo arose to become the brave and beloved hobbit that he is 💚

I'm really enjoying learning about the shaping of the LOTR with you gals @JazzFeathers @Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 @eanderson @tdrosebud

Meaw_catlady 🎶 and Bingo was his name oh🎶 5mo
wordslinger42 @BookwormAHN I agree! I was relieved once he became Frodo! It has been so lovely to learn more about Tolkien's writing with this group!
@Meaw_catlady Your comment made my day 😂 😂
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Right! Every time I read the early stuff and came to Bingo it pulled me right out of the story. So glad he changed it! 5mo

Today marks the 2 year anniversary of reading Tolkien on an almost daily basis with an amazing group of readers! These are the 24 books completed on my Goodreads Tolkien shelf since joining the #LotRChapterADay readalong on July 18, 2017. 18 are books I read with the group, along with 6 more I read alongside. We‘ve had wonderful sharing and discussion about the work of one of my favorite writers, and I look forward to continuing. #YearofTolkien

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Wow 18! I didn‘t even realize it was that many! I‘m impressed with us! 5mo
BarbaraJean I love that this is still going!! #LOTRchapteraday was one of my favorite group reads on Litsy, although I had to drop out somewhere around Beren & Luthien. I love still seeing your posts as you all continue! 5mo

Indeed...I stepped out my door one day and decided to join a Hobbit and LOTR Chapter a Day reading group, led by @freyaheart ...and poof here it is 2 years later with a small group that took off from there and I‘m still reading, and still enjoying every turn of phrase and insight!

Here‘s to year 3 of this grand adventure! 🍻


JazzFeathers I even thought l wouldn't join the #LotRChapterADay readalong because l though l didn't have time. Thank goodness Prof. Tolkien grabbed my hair and dragging me into it. One of the best things that happend to me in these last years. Thanks so much to all my fellow #YearOfTolkien readers, you are the best! @Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @eanderson @wordslinger42 @tdrosebud @BookwormAHN 5mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @eanderson @wordslinger42 @tdrosebud @BookwormAHN @freyaheart It‘s so true! I love so many things about Litsy, but joining the #LotRChapterADay readalong and continuing on with this group is one of my favorites. 5mo
BookwormAHN @JazzFeathers @Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @eanderson @wordslinger42 @tdrosebud I've read a few books in the past with y'all but I'm glad I'm in for the rest of the journey 💚 5mo
wordslinger42 @Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers @BookwormAHN @eanderson @tdrosebud Yes, I'm so thankful for this group! What better way to journey through the histories 😊💚 I'm so excited for year three!!! 5mo

Today the #YearOfTolkien group celebrate its second year of reading Tolkien (almost) every day!

Two years ago, when l joined the #LotRChapterADay (and l almost didn't, l thought l didn't have time) l never ever ever imagined what journey awaited me. Truly, if we don't keep our feet, there's no telling where we might be sweet off to.

Drop in today. We'll share quotes, thoughts, and a party

JazzFeathers And Hey, we need an hashtag for out third year. Help us find one. And don't forget to visit my and @Riveted_Reader_Melissa buffet later today. As well as all the gals' feed Daisey @eanderson @wordslinger42 @tdrosebud @BookwormAHN 😁🎉🎉🎊🎊 5mo

Don't call it a come back!

Guess who is at it again. I know I didn't formally make any announcement but bringing back #lotrchapteraday but this year I'm starting with The Silmarillion. Might just read it at my own pace. Maybe a chapter a day.... maybe 3 a day who knows.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa There and Back Again! Enjoy!!! 5mo
