Two Towers (Book III) read-through - Thanks everyone! Can't Post

There is, of course, no new Book III chapter to start discussing this Sunday, because we have reached the end. I hope you have been enjoying the Book III read-through as much as I have.

Thanks to all our chapter leaders: MirielCelebel, Brethil, cats16, Mikah, Entwife Wandlimb , squire, arithmancer , Darkstone, Enanito, jochenkeen , and Elizabeth. Each of you did splendidly, enabling us to have a series of fine discussions.

Thanks also to everyone who posted: there were so many interesting, thought-provoking and amusing replies. And of course, thanks to everyone who 'lurked' - always heartening to see that posts are collecting 'views'. If you did lurk this time, let me encourage you to post next time! Smile

Elizabeth's last post of the Palantir chapter invites you to post any general reflections you have about Book III, so please do so http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=886210#886210

Threads do not automatically close on these boards, so by all means go back and read, and post more comments on a particular chapter if you have them (there's a full list of links in my footer).

Finally, the read-through of Book IV starts on 3 January. The schedule for that (an an appeal for volunteers to lead the last 3 unassigned chapters) can be found here http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=886370#886370.

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

I am one of the nearly-always lurkers, but I do so appreciate all the interesting thoughts and wide experience contributed to these threads. They are a highlight of this place - the very best quality lurking happens here :) Sincere thanks to everyone.

Mucho thanks for organizing, Wiz! [In reply to] Can't Post

These discussions only happen when someone keeps them on track, which you've done with great fitness. Thank you! I did more lurking than participating this time due to general business, but hope to get more involved again in 2016.
