March Into Middle Earth: A Month to Celebrate Tolkien

Ever since Andrew and I went to see Lord of the Rings in concert at Lincoln Center I’ve been wanting to re-read the books as it’s been years since I delved into the world of Middle Earth in any medium other than film.  When I heard about March Into Middle Earth through Melissa of Readerly Geek, I discovered Rin of Rin Reads (who is hosting the event and created the lovely header graphic) and that she and her book club, Dungeons & Jetpacks, would be buddy reading The Fellowship of the Ring this month.  Could there be a more perfect time to revisit my favorite characters and accompany them on their journey one more time? I certainly can’t think of one!

I love the idea of participating in a month long celebration of all things Tolkien so I’m already planning my posts for the rest of March.  As you may already know, March 25 is Tolkien Reading Day which originated in 2003 and is created by The Tolkien Society and inspired this months buddy read.  If I stick to the schedule, I should be finished with The Fellowship of the Ring by then so I may do something else that day in celebration.  But in the meantime, you can count on seeing a Tea & Book Chat, a collectibles post, an outfit of the day post and more here on my blog.  I may also follow in Melissa’s footsteps and finally watch the animated version of The Hobbit. And, if you’re a fellow Tolkien fan, I would highly suggest joining in the Middle Earth madness this month!  Until my first post, I’ll leave you with my newest addition to my Tolkien collection, the Folio Society box set.

  1. I have read these books many times. I think the first time was when I was eleven.
    The books are STILL better than the movies! :-)

    I can’t wait to read your upcoming posts!!!
    Unfortunately I discovered this March thing very late (there is also #MiddleEarthMarch readalong on Instagram), I already set up a schedule for my rereading of The Silmarillion, so I won’t be able to join you all rereading LOTR. I’m going to share my plans this Sunday btw ;)

  4. OH MY WORD. That LOTR box set is gorgeous. I also love the idea of dedicating a month to Tolkien. So good.
