I made it through the rest of the #NotionClub Papers. That last section all about language was tough again, and to be honest I might have skimmed through parts, but I‘m caught up again. So glad to be reading this with others so that I do get to those moments of great interest or insight without giving up.

#FellowshipOfTolkien

Read up to Night 70 of the #NotionClub Papers last night.
At some point, l'd like to compare this to the Lost Road. I don't remember it very well, now, but l seem to remember it was an easier read. But maybe l read it at a more related time.
I keep having the feeling that this writing was a private joke and that's why it's more difficult for us to got into it.

Daisey I very much agree with this. I want to compare it more closely, but I don‘t have time for that kind of careful comparative reading right now. I also feel this is more complex and analytical with a very specific audience in mind. 2d

Getting closer! #24B4Monday
I finished The Notion Club Paprrs for #LOTRHistory, and never have I been so relieved to be done reading something by Tolkien. I feel slightly traitorous and guilty... but still relieved.

Sunday books and breakfast included homemade pumpkin spice French toast sticks this morning. I‘m starting Night 68 and enjoying Part 2 of the Notion Club Papers much more than Part 1. Even when it gets a bit more dense, the connection to Middle-Earth keeps me more engaged.

CoffeeNBooks Pumpkin spice French toast sticks sounds amazing! How do you make them? 4d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Good luck with the catching up, and yes, I agree...part 2 was a bit better for me too. 4d
Daisey @CoffeeNBooks They were delicious!They‘re pretty similar to regular French toast except that they‘re seasoned with cinnamon and pumpkin spice (nutmeg, cloves, ginger, etc.) instead of vanilla and include pumpkin purée. I followed this recipe for the most part. https://lifemadesimplebakes.com/pumpkin-french-toast-sticks 4d

This is the stack of books I plan to read from throughout the weekend between household chores and school work. I already read a section of the #NotionClub Papers this evening. I also have a couple audiobooks in progress and more downloaded from the library. I didn‘t plan any snacks for this weekend, but there are definitely some plans for baking tomorrow.

Checkin time. I‘m at the beginning of Night 66, so about 3 days behind our original estimate schedule.

How‘s everyone else doing? I know a bunch of you are behind, but maybe behind in the same-ish place....so still together really.?‍♀️

How‘s it going? I know at Night 65 another retelling of the flood Atlantis/Númenor story is starting to emerge sort of a spin of the time traveling version way back in The Lost Tales (I think)⤵️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa If I forgot to tag anyone, please add them. 7d
Daisey This is exactly where I am now, but I doubt I will have any more reading time tonight. Somehow I missed the transition from Night 64 to 65. (edited) 7d

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey Honesty, I‘m not sure I‘ll read anymore tonight either....maybe I‘ll just let it set, see where everyone else is, and then possibly catch-up over the weekend. 7d
JazzFeathers I read Night 66 last night. This second part is a lot easier to follow, even when addressing the same subject as the first one. 7d
wordslinger42 I'm participating in the Litsy readathon this weekend, so I'll be caught up by tomorrow! I'm on Night 65 6d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 we seem to all be at about the same place 65 or 66. 😉 6d

I read the first few pages of Part 2 tonight, through the end of Night 65. I really enjoyed the discussion of language, and I‘m looking forward to continuing as familiar things have started showing up in the discussion.

“Behold the Eagles of the Lords of the West! They are coming over Numenor!”

#NotionClub #FellowshipofTolkien #YearsofTolkien

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I know, I was excited there too, suddenly LOTR etc is creeping in.😉 7d
JazzFeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey l halted at the mention of the cloud looking like smoke issuing from the Dome of Oxford and l thought, Oh! Sauron in Numenor! 7d
Daisey @JazzFeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa The cloud imagery caught my attention too, but this seemed even more recognizable for sharing. 7d

I'm totally intrigued with the second part of the #NotionClub Papers. I've only read the first two nights, but l'm loving the atmosphere.
And that foreshadowing about the Redcliff Chamber Dome, with the claud that looks like smoke issuing from it 😍

Can't wait to see where this goes. Thought l have my ideas 😏

Daisey Completely agree! I just read through the end of Night 65 and I wanted to keep going (but tests to grade). (edited) 1w
JazzFeathers @Daisey This second part is a lot easier to read. And it does sound like a story even when it still discusses languages 😊 7d
Daisey I felt that way about this section as well, and I hope it stays that way. 7d
