They went in, and Sam shut the door.
But even as he did so, he heard suddenly,
deep and unstilled,
the sigh and murmur of the Sea upon the shores of Middle-earth.

Have fun with it! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's your week - do what you want. There's no "right" or "wrong" way to lead a discussion, as long as you somehow refer to the LotR chapter text and ask a few questions... Welcome to the lion's den, er, the pantheon of heroes.

Put me down for The Field of Cormallen [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll even do 7 or 8 if no one volunteers. (That ought to spook some to speak up.)

******************************************
Brothers, sisters,
I was Elf once.
We danced together
Under the Two Trees.
We sang as the soft gold of Laurelin
And the bright silver of Telperion,
Brought forth the dawn of the world.
Then I was taken.

Brothers, sisters,
In my torment I kept faith,
And I waited.
But you never came.
And when I returned you drew sword,
And when I called your names you drew bow.
Was my Eldar beauty all,
And my soul nothing?

So be it.
I will return your hatred,
And I am hungry.

Thank you! [In reply to] Can't Post

I have been looking wistfully at The Scouring of the Shire and at the calendar, trying to see if I could possibly squeeze doing it somewhere. I'm glad there is no need anymore.

Will we be doing the appendices afterwards, or do you (plural you) think there aren't enough regular participants to sustain such a discussion?

My plan for the Appendices [In reply to] Can't Post

...is to list them, without dates. Folks can sign up, and maybe request specific dates if it matters, and we will do those appendices for which we get leaders. Any other suggestions?
