Saturday morning plans:
#HolidayRecipeSwap card finalized and dropped in the mail
✅ Coffee and another #CovertoCover book read
🔷 Catching up on Sauron Defeated with #FellowshipofTolkien
🔷 Making Christmas fruitcake while listening to audiobooks

JazzFeathers 👏👏👏 I should try to bake a fruit cake too 😆 3w
Daisey @JazzFeathers It‘s a family tradition that I took over a couple of years ago when my grandma passed away. It‘s a great way to remember her and to get my holiday season started. 3w
jewright So glad you still make the fruitcake! 3w
JazzFeathers @Daisey Those family traditions are the best. I took up my grampa tradition of the Christmas menu. 3w

I got up early this morning to make pumpkin scones for school, and I hoped to fit in a few pages of reading along with my own breakfast. However, by the time I cleaned up my kitchen mess and prepped my just finished #CovertoCover book to mail, it was time to leave. I did fit in a few pages tonight, and I‘m continuing to enjoy my slow progress through the versions of the story of Numenor.

#FellowshipofTolkien

JazzFeathers I'm really, really enjoying these evolutions of the stories. In yesterday's night commentary, Christopher theories that at that stage, his father was considering different ways to revise his Silmarillion, especially in light of the (then still) unfinished Lord of the Rings. It's fascinating and quite unexpected. 3w
Daisey @JazzFeathers I made my way through more of this last night and did find it fascinating to consider. I love how Tolkien put so much of his thinking down on paper. 3w

#FellowshipOfTolkien

Oh, wow!
Since there has been so little about Numenor so far, l was wondering how Tolkien evolved his stories about it while writing LotR, since in this story a very definite history of Numenor is present.

It's fascinating to see the many different possibilities, some quite different from the story as we know it as canon.

All caught up again, felt like I was never going to make it to Part III.

Although The Notion Papers were interesting, I‘m always going to think there is so much more there going on just below the surface that had a lot to do with the members of The Inklings and some of their personalities and foibles seeping over into this story as fun academic teasing.

Onto part III!

JazzFeathers I caught up too and can't wsit to read part three. The Fall of Numenor has always been one of my very favourite parts in the Silmarillion. 1mo

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? 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Good luck with the catching up, and yes, I agree...part 2 was a bit better for me too. 1mo
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 1mo

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 😭
#LOTRHistory

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 😊

#FellowshipOfTolkien #LOTRHistory

Loved reading this unused epilogue to The Lord of the Rings, the way Tolkien first envisioned the book to end.
Yes, the final version is more powerful, and it's not hard to see why Tolkien went with it in the end.

It's also not hard to see Tolkien himself surrounded by his own children in his studio, telling them stories. I understand why he was fondo of that epilogue.

Daisey I completely agree! 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved that version... it‘s so reflective of Tolkien and so very true to Sam too. 1mo
