More geek....

Soon to be added to the blogroll: Tolkien Geek

Gary is blogging his way through the Lord of the Rings series, chapter by chapter, as he rereads the books. Interesting commentary and Tolkien trivia interspersed throughout.

Fellowship of the Ring starts here with the Prologue to Book 1.

Don't worry, you're not behind, the most recent entry is only Ch. 3.

I hated reading those books. They were horribly written and the editing was terrible. It was a good story, it just needed to be done by a better writer.

Oh, yeah... it is a great website. I went over last week. LOTR Geek Heaven! I read them about once a year, but it's made me want to read them again a bit earlier than usual.

Ith, I think there is a support group for people like you. You know, they like to torture themselves. :)

Actually, reading the books gives me a great sense of peace. They meant a great deal to me when I was 16 and read them for the first time and helped me more than I can say dealing with some really tough times. I can still count on that sense of peace everytime I pick up the book and start reading those familiar words.
