#FellowshipOfTolkien #TolkiensLetters

@Daisey @BookwormAHN @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42

I know I'm late, but here's the schedule for the second half of May.
I'll admit I'm still behind (May has been crazy), but l want to catch up so we can start reading together again 😊

wordslinger42 I might join you for your next read 💜 4d
BookwormAHN Thank you 😺 3d
Daisey Thanks! I‘m going to keep reading slowly as a few letters fit in my schedule. I think we may end up about the same place again come June. 1d

#OnThisDay in 1926 the English faculty at Merton College, Oxford held a meeting to discuss scheduling and curriculum outlines (thrilling stuff). In attendance were recently appointed Professor J.R.R Tolkien and English Fellow/Tutor C.S Lewis. After the meeting, Lewis wrote of Tolkien "No harm in him: only needs a smack or two." And thus was the beginning of a beautiful literary friendship. #HistoryGetsLIT

vivastory 😂 One of the best literary friendships. 2w
BennettBookworm Woah!! 2w
mandarchy My 8th grade ELA teacher told us that they had a bet over who could write a better trilogy. Clearly Tolkien won - because very few people have ever heard of C.S. Lewis' trilogy: The Space Trilogy. Of which Perelandra is my favorite. 2w

Bklover @mandarchy Isn‘t Out of the Silent Planet part of that trilogy? I read those a looooong time ago, but I remember really loving them. 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa The Serendipity of so much of this, still makes me smile 😉 2w
BookwormAHN And I was just reading The Magician's Nephew 😺 2w
wordslinger42 @JazzFeathers I'd never heard that story 💜💜 1w

I would agree that as a reader of Tolkien‘s work, I always want a little more, including some of these very topics. His world building is immersive in a way that makes it seem that information should be available.

From Letter 187 written April 1956

BookwormAHN Agreed 😺 2w

#FellowshipOfTolkien #TolkiensLetters

Daisey I‘ve hardly picked them up lately. Which one have you made it to? 4w

Daisey @JazzFeathers @BookwormAHN I just read 180 last night because I was feeling some Tolkien withdrawal. 3w
JazzFeathers @Daisey 😂😂😂 @BookwormAHN gals, what say if we catch up with Daisey. I'll make a schedule from letter 180 starting from 15 May. How does that sound? 3w
BookwormAHN Sounds good to me 😺 3w
Daisey @JazzFeathers Sorry, I thought I had replied to this. Sounds great to me. May will ab another month I‘ll just read a few here and there as we wrap up the school year and I try to catch back up on Ulysses. 2w

What a beauteous artefact 😍 Ok, so I've already read them all, and I've already got two of the books in the same edition, but hear me out - it was heavily reduced in price as two of the books have printer's ink on the top edge, but those are the two I already have, so I can swap them out! 😃 Bargain! 📚

TrishB They are lovely 😁 1mo
Bookwomble @TrishB Yes they are! How was the game yesterday ⚽️ 1mo

The hobbit is a book about a hobbit that goes on an adventure. It starts when Gandolf arrives at the Shire, and convinces Bilbo to come with him so they can reclaim the kingdom of Erebor. Along the way they run into many obstacles and have to overcome them. Bilbo ends up finding a ring that belongs to Gollum. When they finally reached the Kingdom they are greeted with the dragon Smaug. They are forced to defeat the dragon.

MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Rhett. You were just missing the POV and the recommendation. 3/6 2mo

Errrr.... The app tells me l've been away for over one month. I really didn't realise it. I've been so busy with work, and the blog and a possible new business - it just swallowed me up.

But hey! Here l am on Tolkien Reading Day.
Couldn't miss this one 😜

Daisey I‘m just barely fitting it in, but I‘m making some time for Tolkien this evening as well. 2mo
JazzFeathers @Daisey Look. Almost a week passed before l answered 🙄 March/April have always been exceptionally busy for me, bit this year more than ever. I'm reading ARCs for NetGalley at the moment, because they are about to expire, but then, l'll go back to the Letters 😁 2mo

Still reading along with The Legendarium podcast. On chapter 16 at the moment.
I still have a cold (since 2 weeks!) and it's hard to read sometimes because I'm soo tired or my head hurts. Doctor said my immune system is shot. So lots of rest, vitamins and tissues. But I do think it's going better the past two days.

mandarchy I hope you feel better soon. That does not sound like fun. 2mo
UwannaPublishme Feel better! 🌻 2mo
Deifio @mandarchy @UwannaPublishme Thank you! It's getting better albeit very slowly. 2mo

Sunday morning perfection!
Yesterday my family got together to cut up pork and make sausage. A lot of it stayed at Grandpa‘s to be smoked, but this morning I had fresh sausage links for breakfast and finally made some time again for Tolkien‘s letters. I‘ve been busy with life and other reading, and I‘ve missed my Tolkien reading.
