Tolkien reading day, 2021

Today we raise a glass to our dear professor Tolkien.

Today, in Middle-Earth History, Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee destroy the One-Ring in the fires of Mount Doom.

So we celebrate by going back to our favorite passages and stories from Lord of the Rings, or any other of the magnificent work of the professor.

Today, I’ll read a couple of stories from a collection I have been meaning to delve into.

Off to read.


Happy 129th birthday to Professor Tolkien

A long time ago, in Bloemfontein, South Africa, a remarkable writer was born that came and change the world of fantasy literature forever.

I place The Lord of the Rings in the top place of my favorite books, this is mostly because it was that one book that got me really into reading, but most importantly I read them during a really dark emotional period for me.

I don’t say this lightly, but it help me to keep afloat, and not to sick on a really dark chasm.

For that I am forever grateful.

So rise a glass in salute, and may the wonder of Middle-Earth never ends.
