Read along with The Literary Life podcast. Good stuff!
And so it's over. After seven months of journey (we started on 5 April and finished on 27 October) The History of the Lord of the Rings is over 😭
It was such an incredible, enriching, emotional, insightful journey. And all the more fantastic thanks to my awesome #FellowshipOfTolkien travel buddies.
Now let me curle up in a corner and mourne for a little while 😢
Fortunatly, we'll go on another #MiddleEarth adventure soon 😊
Don‘t #CountMeOut of this group, but I am not a Tolkien fan. I read The Hobbit years ago, and it was such a struggle. Lord of the Rings holds no fascination for me. I‘m glad there is a huge fan base, but he‘s just not for me. 🤷🏻♀️ #SoaringScores

I have this habit of keeping old calendars because I think I will do something with the images that I like, but more often than not I don‘t end up doing anything. This is my office calendar from last year, which is still sitting in my office wasting space. But at least it‘s good fodder for today‘s #October prompt!

I've noticed a lot of #JRRTolkien fans, but are there any #CSSLewis fans out there? 🤔
This two were besties, and they influeced each other, as they influeced and were influeced by other members of the #Inklings.
I think Litsy is kind of a massive 21st century literary circle🤗 📘 📙
Tolkien's short poem is given two pages per line by his favourite Illustrator, Pauline Baynes.The verso page has the poem line, framed by a different pair of winter trees on each page, capturing Tolkien's theme of leavetaking and endings, the recto page Bayne's interpretation of the stages of Bilbo's final journey to the West, while the bottom of both pages have vignettes of Bilbo's first journey with Thorin and company, as told in "The Hobbit".
