Sauron Defeated | John R. R. Tolkien

No time for breakfast with Tolkien this morning, but I did fit in just a few pages with lunch. I‘m thoroughly enjoying another look at the Fall of Numenor in this third section of the book. The more often I read them, the more I can appreciate the mythological style of the early stories of Tolkien‘s world.

Yesterday started out cool and misty so I made a batch of spicy chicken soup with some of the last fresh jalapeños, and it was perfect for supper again tonight.

I read a chapter before supper and finished up this next one after. It was good to finally see Arwen appear by name, and as they travel I‘m curious to see the first drafts of the hobbits return to the Shire.

I loved Expecting Better when I was pregnant and this straightforward examination of parenting after having the baby is excellent as well. My kids are a bit older so I skimmed most of the first year info. I appreciate the way the author examines trends in raising children with data rather than emotion to prove points. (As seen here with my chili dinner) #parenting #raisingreaders #readandeat

I started this family drama a few days ago but keep forgetting to post about it. I am enjoying the #audiobook so far, but I do agree that it is pretty much a downer. I'm hoping some positive events turn the characters' lives around!
As seen here with my breakfast--featuring pumpkin spice Cheerios 🎃

Steak nachos and a few more pages of Tolkien before I get back to updating grades and lesson planning tonight. I‘m thoroughly enjoying the development of the city and Pippin‘s adventures in “Minas Tirith.”

Supper in the backyard and then another chapter of the next @litsybookclub pick in the hammock! I'm only on the second chapter, but I'm intrigued to read it after what I've seen and heard about this Pulitzer Prize winning novel.

Got rained out of the beach 🌧
Sitting in the beach house with book, snacks, & a drink. #arc #readandeat
Loving this book so far!

OnlyYoo I loveeee Reds! My drink of choice haha 4mo
Chelsea.Poole @OnlyYoo one of my favorites! But this one is "wicked" which I guess means more alcohol and I wasn't a huge fan of it. 4mo
OnlyYoo Good to know! 4mo

While grilling supper tonight I read the Helm‘s Deep chapter. It‘s an interesting chapter with lots of developing ideas about both the location and the battle. Considering the evolution of the layout of the locations is more fascinating than I would have expected.

Reviewsbylola That looks amazing! 4mo
vivastory Boulevard! 🍻 4mo
JazzFeathers I loved the chapter. I get the impression that at this stage, Tolkien was writing in a franzy. I'd love to know what was going on in his life in that moment. 4mo
Daisey @Reviewsbylola @vivastory It was a pretty perfect summer meal and a great summer beer too. 4mo

I‘m finally starting this one during Sunday morning books with breakfast. I‘m curious about it since I‘ve seen rather conflicting reviews.

bromeliad Yeah, same here. I'm looking forward to your review on this! 4mo
Emilymdxn I absolutely adored this one but I listened to it as audio rather than a physical book and I‘ve heard a few people say they thought it was easier to follow listening than seeing, I‘ll be interested to see how you find the physical copy 4mo
Daisey @Emilymdxn I‘ve seen there is a Lin-Manuel Miranda narrated audiobook, so I did put it on hold. However, a chapter in I think I‘m glad to be reading it in print. Text will make me more likely to slow down and check details such as looking up meanings of Spanish phrases. 4mo
