Rob Cheater!

Ajay Aha.. is that a part of a reading challenge to get the book before the film hits the screen?


message 3: by Rob (new)

Rob Not exactly. She's reading ahead for the Sword and Laser December book pick.

The Sword and Laser bookclub is reading it in December, but then I came across a blogger readalong on the Unputdownables blog. Their schedule is a bit slower than S&L, with a set schedule for discussion. I'm going to try blog my way along. I'm also trying Whispersync for the first time and it is awesome!

Partially true. Not untrue. I can't believe I've never read it.

Wait. This is your FIRST read? I envy you. Mine was ruined by my 9th grade English teacher. I'm very much looking forward to re-reading it..you know..next month ^_^

I should have my geek card revoked as I hadn't read a word of Tolkien until this week!

AndrewP I'm reading ahead as well, but only because my wife wants to read it before the movie too:)

KWinks  This is my first read too. I have to read it for S&L and my Teen Book Club picked it as our Jan read.

What do you think so far? Have you started it yet or will you wait until December?

Sue I think I need a reread. It's been many years. Definitely time. How are you liking it, Jenny?

I think it is wonderful. I just wish I had read it as a child.

Ed Ha! I knew you couldn't keep that slow pace for the whole book. :-)

Do you think you'll read The Lord of the Rings and/or The Silmarillion? I recommend reading the latter first. It's worth the effort; "The Lay of Beren and Luthién" is the best thing Tolkien ever wrote.

Rob Glad you liked it!


message 15: by AndrewP (new)

AndrewP I agree with Ed, read the The Silmarillion first. It's the book that shows how Tolkein's world building goes way, way beyond anything anybody else has ever done.

Thanks guys, I'll add it to the long long list. :)
