Lord of the Rings read-through

Is anyone else doing their annual reading of Lord of the Rings this month? I always start on the 22nd and end up watching the movies as well. It'd be nice to have someone to read along with.

Welcome to TORn and the Reading Room

We just finished a read-through here but discussion about the books is always welcome. Feel free to post your observations as they occur.

My annual read-through usually happens in December. When I first read the books, I was 13 or 14, so December was my winter break and I had enough time to read. So that became a habit all the way through college and continues to this day.

But I first read The Hobbit in October because it was assigned for a class, so that's close to September.

Just started mine

It's been several years since my last read through, and even though I'm back-logged on books to read pretty significantly, I picked up my old paperback copy of Fellowship this weekend, the first edition I read, and simply started reading. I'm about 40 pages in and have zero desire to stop until I finish Return of the King. Looks like I'll be just behind you in coming weeks as I am well overdue for a reading, and am excited to finally be starting!
