I think I found my wedding cake 🐉

#FellowshipofTolkien I thought you all would appreciate this 💚 And how appropriate for this to have showed up when we just started reading The Hobbit 😅

Mehso-so

Finished up this read for #HistoryofLOTR & I am sorry to say that I did not enjoy this one very much. I've enjoyed the Histories, but this is not one of my favorites.

#YearofTolkien #FellowshipofTolkien

JazzFeathers The Notion Club Papers are hard and slow going, but tge end of the History of the Lord of the Rings and the evolution of tge story of Numenor were fantastic, in my opinion 😍 2w
wordslinger42 @JazzFeathers I enjoyed the history of LOTR, but from Notion Club on, it just didn't suit me 😴 Still enjoy reading along with all of you, though! 2w

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. 3w

OK... I love Tolkien with all my heart, but I'm currently feeling very thankful that he abandoned the Notion Club Papers in favor of finishing LOTR. Some small bits are kind of interesting, but for the most part, I am just really not enjoying this 😴

#YearofTolkien #LOTRHistory

Daisey I‘m not far, but I understand what you mean. There are little bits that really speak to me and other sections where I‘m struggling to stay engaged. 1mo
wordslinger42 @Daisey Yes! I feel so distracted while I read, like I end up checking Litsy more often than I turn a page 😅 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 I completely agree, these were much more challenging for me to read and stay engaged, where the LOTR‘s chapters flew by. 1mo
wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Glad I'm not alone! I'll be very happy when we're done with this section! 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 Same here! It definitely feels more of a great group brainstorming what-of session, less of a great read, in my opinion anyway...so great if you were there, not so great as a story to just read....and I‘m not sure all the footnotes help either, this might be one of the few cases where they make it more confusing sometimes. 1mo

I loved these variations on Sam‘s life in various Epilogues.

Sam‘s always been my favorite character and I love seeing him settled and telling the story and answering the questions of his own children who are just as persistent as he and his friends were at the beginning of the story.

The part in quotation marks 💚💚💚

Daisey Yep! This was the quote that most stood out to me as well while reading this chapter. 1mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I read about 4 sections myself last night, luckily they aren‘t very long ones, so you can do it and good luck! 1mo

I really enjoyed this short chapter. I always think it's interesting to read about certain sections where Tolkien's ideas were almost fully formed from the start. It doesn't happen very often for me when I'm writing, but it's always exciting when it does!
