#FellowshipOfTolkien #ThereAndBackAgain

Is Riddles in the Dark the best chapter in the book?
For me, it might easily be. There's mystery, and adventure, and danger. There's an ancient and sacred game. There's a magic item and a reluctant hero coming into his self.
It's fantastic.

l'll admit that after reading the Histories, l can see how this chapter (that was heavily revised after the publication of LotR) differafrom the rest of this story.

I didn‘t get much reading done last night after working on Christmas decorations, so I‘m catching up on “Riddles in the Dark” with coffee this morning.

Probably one of my favorite quotes in the whole book 💚

JazzFeathers It is a good one 👍 2d
Daisey This is one of my favorite quotes as well! (edited) 2d
JulAnna I like this one too! To me it sums up the attitude of hobbits which continues in The Lord of the Rings saga. 1d

In Chapter 4, I find the giants up on the mountains intriguing and wish there was a bit more about them. Instead we get plenty of goblins. This chapter in the annotated edition includes many different illustrations of goblins, and I think this is my favorite.

JazzFeathers I suspect Tolkien's kids were fond of goblins 😂 l too am fascinated with giants. I love that the Mountain becomes alive like that. I also quite like the way they depicted them in the film. 3d
wordslinger42 I've never seen that illustration before! 2d
Daisey @wordslinger42 I didn‘t realize the annotated edition included so many different illustrations by different artists from around the world. I‘ll loving that aspect! 2d
Daisey @JazzFeathers That's a good point; I bet his kids did enjoy them! 2d
JulAnna 💛 this illustration! 1d

With my trusty book sleeve, I'm ready for all manner of adventures 📚 🧙🏼‍♂️ Including chapter 4 of the #ThereandBackAgain read-a-long! It's not too late to join in if you'd like to read The Hobbit with a group of lovely Littens!

I used money from an early Christmas gift this year to purchase The Annotated Hobbit to go along with our current readalong. It arrived today so I‘m playing a bit of catch up on chapters 2 & 3. I‘m excited to see illustrations from other editions (above center is from the 1973 Slovak edition) and to read the annotations, although I doubt I‘ll get to all of them with this reading.

JazzFeathers The Italian translation of this edition is the very first Tolkien book l ever bought. Nostalgia... 4d
Daisey @JazzFeathers What a wonderful memory! 3d

Afraid I'm going to pull a Gandalf on my fellow adventurers and disappear from the party temporarily. Limited time for the next week or so - I was ahead, soon I'll be behind, but I'll catch up again! I'll do my best to catch up on your posts as well.

Sace Y'all are making me want to read this again. It's been 20+ years since I read it. 5d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa We‘ll be on the road somewhere when you catch up.... ask for us in Rivendell. 5d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Sace You should join us, we are doing a chapter-a-day, and it‘s such a fun read for around the busy holidays. 5d
Sace @Riveted_Reader_Melissa oh I'm such a slow and polygamous reader that I don't think I could manage even a chapter a day. I might read it own my own at some point though. 4d
JazzFeathers @Ilwheeler we'll be here when you're back 😉 4d

Reading chapter 1 with Tolkien‘s own illustration of The Hill and Bag End. The meeting between Bilbo and Gandalf is great, and I always enjoy the little history of golf anecdote.

Fun note for today: I happened to log into the web version of Litsy this evening and The Hobbit is a trending book!

#FellowshipofTolkien #ThereAndBackAgain #YearsofTolkien

JazzFeathers Noooooo! Do you think we made it trendy? 5d
Daisey @JazzFeathers I think we did! If you scroll through recent posts, they are all for our readalong. 💪 😁 5d
