  1. Thank you for doing this. I found the read-along a couple of weeks ago and managed to catch up this past week. I'm looking forward to joining in for The Two Towers!

  2. Wonderful! Although it may kill me to wait until October 8th to start.

    Which section of The Two Towers would you like me to develop questions for?

  3. @Jennifer- i am sure glad that you are enjoying the read a long. It is not a problem hosting the event, I have been wanting to read the LOTR for quite some time..:)Thank you for your participation.

    @Carl V-I hope that you survive until October 8th..:) I was thinking that you could develop questions\topics for section 2.

  4. That works for me, thanks!

    And I'll try. I pulled down my copy of it over the weekend and was looking at it longingly. :)

  5. I plan to join in! I was worried I was too late, so I am glad to see I am actually not. I don't want to fall behind. :)


Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like to see what you are thinking.
