Whither the Reading Room? Can't Post

Only a few chapters remain in our discussion of Book IV of LotR, but they are some great ones!

But we must begin to think of what's next. I am happy to prepare a signup schedule for Book V (my favorite!) in a few days, to begin June 5. But action has been a bit slow here the last few weeks, and some of the general discussion threads have drawn more attention than the chapter discussions, even though our discussion leaders have done a great job! And I must note that all the discussions have been read many times, even though sometimes there weren't many responses.

So, please respond here by letting us know what you would like to do:
* forge ahead with Book V
* take a break from LotR chapter discussions (and resume later, or not)
* organize discussions on a different topic (you must specify!)

Looking ahead, if we continue straight ahead with LotR, we'll finish the Appendices in late Oct - Nov. (depending on whether we do them all). I'm guessing that in 2012 we'll want to do The Hobbit, in preparation for the movie opening in December, right? There are 19 chapters in The Hobbit, and about 48 weeks in 2012 (assuming we start the 2nd week in Jan.) before the movie opens. That's time to do one other modest Tolkien work, or perhaps several of the shorter ones (e.g. Leaf by Niggle, Farmer Giles of Ham, etc.). Think about it!






Join us in the Reading Room for LotR The Two Towers, Book IV!
