It’s time to check into the The Two Towers, and yes, I know I have yet to complete my review or wrap up post for The Fellowship of the Ring.
Unfortunately I have come down with some kind of flu bug that has knocked me for a six.
I promise to catch up soon, but for now here is the starting post for the next part of our #HLOTRreadalong2017. Please add your reviews to the link below and I’ll pop by for a visit when I’m back on my feet.
I’m rereading the books over a leisurely period of time. I want to savour my illustrated editions and feel no pressure to be finished by a set date. My reading time frames are generous but also designed to keep things ticking along.
My plans for the #HLOTRreadalong2017 will be to:
- Post a master post where people can sign up to join the readlaong or write their own post about their previous experiences with #HLOTR. Or if this is their first time, a post about why they’ve decided now is the time to read Tolkien. (tick)
- Write a welcome to book post for the start of each book, providing basic facts, background information and my proposed reading pace.
- Have at least one check-in post about halfway through each book – to see how everyone is going, to ask questions, rant, rave or refute.
- Post a wrap up/review at the end of each book where we can discuss our thoughts and feelings, ask questions and practice our Elvish! (links will be attached to the book titles above with the month that we read them.)
Tell us your history with Tolkien and the LOTR.
Why are you reading or rereading it now?
Have you learnt Elvish? Or read any other Tolkien books?
If you are rereading and would like to mention specific events that happen in the book, please remember to add **spoiler** alerts to protect the innocence of any first time readers.
