Brona of Brona’s Books is hosting The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings readathon this spring and summer, as the 21st September 2017 will be the 80th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit. She has proposed this schedule:
I read The Hobbit about 5 years ago. I was taking the bus to work and though I often read books on the bus, I don’t think I ever wanted the ride to be longer than when I was reading The Hobbit.
2. Why are you reading or rereading it now?
I really enjoy readalongs for one. For another, LOTR is one of my sister’s favorites and I have had to hear about it all these years. Finally, I may understand the big deal 🙂
3. Have you learnt Elvish? Or read any other Tolkien books?
No other Tokien books.
And, no, I do not know Elvish, but I like maps. I loved the maps in The Hobbit, so I am hoping for more in LOTR!
