sobriety is boring as shit but also very good and reading rocks

do you guys wanna do a read through of the hobbit i know that it is simple and plotting a month for it is dumb but we could split it into fourths and do one bit a week and it would be a cool distraction for me

great way to get psyched for Fox Searchlight's TOLKIEN starring Nicholas Hoult (2019)!

yes (i'd rather read the 3 LOTR cause the hobbit is the only tolkien i've already read)

i'm down for lotr

in celebration of that, a picture of my brothers and I in 2002 as frodo, legolas, and a ringwraith. my mom made all the costumes.

i was the ringwraith, i dunno why though, so stupid, most people just thought i was a demon or something

my brother roger's legolas was the best lol. he's still sorta embarrassed by these pictures

I actually think the hobbit is a lot better written than lotr

the philological background is really interesting too, like all these revived bits of anglo-saxon literature

Lord of the Rings is so heavy and epic and takes itself more seriously.

been much longer since i've read lotr so i'd prefer that. also hobbit can be read in a day or two which makes it harder to do a staggered read of
