Every year on March 25, the anniversary of the Downfall of Sauron, the Tolkien Society hosts Tolkien Reading Day. This year’s theme is Life, Death, and Immortality. The primary goal is to promote the reading of the works of J.R R. Tolkien! To celebrate, Pages Unbound will be hosting two weeks of Tolkien-related posts. In addition to our own thoughts, we will be featuring guest posts and interviews!

Oooh, I think I might be able to catch the Twitter chat! Looking forward to that. 🙂
Do you ladies mind if I reblog my interview on Tuesday at my site? Or would you prefer that I share the link in a separate post?
We’d love to have you at the Twitter chat!
Feel free to reblog! 🙂

Looks like an amazing two weeks planned for this event! I don’t think I’ll be able to drop in for the chat on Friday but I look forward to reading the other posts to this event, including your review of The Story of Kullervo 🙂 (my review for that book will be going live on my blog later this week)
Thanks! I’m debating holding a second Twitter chat the following week depending on turnout/interest, but I’m not sure yet! And I want to see your thoughts on The Story of Kullervo. I think I’ve been disagreeing with all the reviews I’ve seen so far!

I think I’ve seen a passing comment or two from you about your thoughts thus far on The Story of Kullervo? It’s certainly a lot different from the other books that were released in the last few years!
My schedule’s a little funny at the moment but I’ll see if I can pop in to the second Twitter chat if you decide to hold one 🙂
