Upcoming Event: Tolkien Reading


Tolkien 2012

Every year on March 25, the anniversary of the Downfall of Sauron, the Tolkien Society hosts Tolkien Reading Day. The goal is to promote the reading of the works of J. R. R. Tolkien! To celebrate, Pages Unbound will be hosting over a week of Tolkien-related posts.  In addition to our own thoughts, we will be featuring a number of guests posts!

So how can you participate?

  • If you’re excited already, you can grab our event button and put it on your blog.
  • You can read a book by J.R.R. Tolkien on March 25, or read one earlier and post a review that day! Find suggestions on the Tolkien Society’s Bibliography.
  • We will have a survey that you can answer and post on your blog.
  • At the end of the event, we will have a post where you can link to any posts you have made about Tolkien, either this year or in the past. Reviews, movie comparisons, philosophical thoughts, and personal reflections are all welcome!

Update 3/27

Check out the official start-of-event announcement or fill out the survey!  As of today, we have posts on The Hobbit, the book to movie adaptations, and “On Fairy-Stories.”  Come back for reviews of Roverandom, “Smith of Wooton Major,” “Leaf by Niggle,” and more!

    Love this idea! Definitely joining in! I am such a Tolkien maniac (recently wrote a post about all the books Tolkien wise that I own!) and The Lord of the Rings is my favourite book ever 🙂 I have so many ideas now jumping around in my brain for posts! Love it!

      I’m glad you’re excited! We’d love to have you join it! We’re going to have a huge variety of guest posts here, too.

      And I’m still having trouble commenting on your blog, so I just wanted to let you know I am completely jealous of your bookstore, and I hope you enjoy The Hunger Games!
