The Fellowship of the Ring
The Fellowship of the Ring: Being the First Part of The Lord of the Rings | J.R.R. Tolkien
The first volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGSOne Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind themIn ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in The Hobbit. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.A unique, wholly realized other world, evoked from deep in the well of Time, massively detailed, absorbingly entertaining, profound in meaning.

A very funny little section of fellowship - Bilbo the sasspot, we love to see it😂

The sentence continuing onto the next page reads, 'Lobelia knew that quite well. When she arrived later in the day, she took the point at once, but she also took the spoons'🥄

I'm pretty sure I've read the lotr before...but it was so long ago & I've seen the films so many times that I'm not fully sure what I've read & what I've just watched😂 I've been meaning to 'reread' properly for years, so I've bought this bloody GORGEOUS copy of fellowship! I'm really going to take my time with it this month😊

The long journey from Rivendell into the empty lands of Eregion had been hard on the hobbits, & Gandalf looked upon them with concern.
"Aragorn, I fear we may have overtaxed the Shirefolk by walking them into this wilderness."
At that moment, Boromir cried, "Look ahead! It's the last outpost of the Gondorian Gelato Guild!"
Weakly, Merry stretched out his hand; "Double scoop mint choc chip, please".
"What?" said Pippin disappointedly, "No flakes?"

If you could live in any house in a work of literature, where would it be?

Rivendell, the House of Elrond, was the first place that came to mind. I listened to the LOTR trilogy again during 2021-2022, so maybe that influenced my choice.

I noticed @PathfinderNicole chose a hobbit hole. In reality, that would probably be more to my liking. 🙂

Just starting this. I‘m working a ton extra right now as we are beginning the school year, and it has been such a restful break. I‘m really enjoying the meandering and tangents that drove me off as a tween. The playful but kind of withdrawn tone reminds me of Jane Austen (also Bilbo‘s insult gifts 😆), and I can see why people reread these often. I‘m already looking forward to coming back and having different details jump out on the next reading.

Do audiobooks count? I've read this before and have now been listening to the audiobook whenever I ride my bike out on the trail. It's perfect for the landscape, the wildlife that I see when I look left and right, and for my view down the path as I watch the trees grow smaller in the distance, gradually hiding my view of what lies ahead. It kindles my desire for adventure and passion for life every time.

Color-coded post-it flags & pens for things like favorite quotes, character development moments, important plot points, etc. Anyone else read like this? She doesn't do this for every book, but she does for most of the classics that she reads. ♥

(1965) I was in the fifth grade when a teacher put her own copy in my hands. And y'all, I was a reader before but this has been foundational to my taste and interests (for good and bad) ever since. I shouldn't have let thirty years pass between re-readings, but one advantage in delay is that it felt as fresh again as it did familiar. I loved this book and love it still. There are a couple more (you may have heard) and I'll get to them very soon.

SRWCF As always, fantastic cover art! This one is on my TBR list. 😊 7mo
swynn @SRWCF Doesn't it just suit the book so well? And for good reason: it's an illustration by Tolkien himself of "Hobbiton-Across-the-Water" 7mo
SRWCF @swynn Oh! That makes it extra special! 7mo

Every time I reread this series I find new beautiful depths. I‘m particularly enjoying the audio narrated by Andy Serkis this time.

“Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement for even the very wise cannot see all ends.”- Gandalf

It‘s Tolkien Reading Day! Today‘s theme from the Tolkien Society is Love and Friendship, so I‘m sharing this quote from when Sam, Merry, and Pippin pretty much tell Frodo he is stuck with their friendship and company on his journey.

I haven‘t been reading much Tolkien lately, but I am going to read another letter or two yet tonight.

Listening to the wonderful performance by Andy Serkis (AKA gollum in the movie). It is Awesome. The only thing I dislike is that he gives the hobbits some kind of Irish-adjacent accent that is sort of annoying, unfortunately. Are the Irish supposed to be short with hairy feet? Not sure! but it is the only criticism I have. I am loving the experience

KCofKaysville @SeatoSkyes I did not even notice such details but overlooked them while being enthralled by the story and the characters. 9mo
SeaToSkyes @KCofKaysville since this is my first time reading the stories after only seeing the films, I'm trying to pay close attention to the differences. Maybe too close! 9mo

SeaToSkyes @KCofKaysville yes! I believe I just got to the part where we meet him 9mo
shanaqui They're both first cousins once removed and second cousins once removed: Frodo's mother was Bilbo's first cousin from Bilbo's mother's side, and Frodo's father was Bilbo's second cousin on Bilbo's father's side. Given all that complexity, makes sense for Frodo to call Bilbo his uncle -- in the same way, I called some of my parents' extended family “uncle“ and “aunt“ as a kid even though they were technically cousins once/twice removed! 9mo
SeaToSkyes @shanaqui it is easy for Frodo to call him uncle but why did Tolkien have to make it so complicated! Lol 😂 9mo

Admittedly I saw the movies first and do actually prefer them to the book. I loved the plot and all the characters, the world building was so well developed and I got lost in all the adventure🥰However I did find the constant singing irritating and found the overly long writing style intimidating, it's probably because I'm so used to reading YA.
Overall, I did like it and will definitely continue for more escapism.

Some great books in 2021. I didn‘t quite make my 52 book goal this year, but I read so so much more than I tracked on Goodreads. Once again my kindle was filled with endless fanfiction in addition to the real books I‘ve read. My goal for 2022 is also 52 and starting the year with COVID is providing some good reading time. 2021 was the year I finally read the Lord of the Rings!
