After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

66. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien


Title: The Fellowship of the Ring
Series: The Lord of the Rings
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Copyright: 2001 (1954)
Pages: 424
Format: Audiobook
Rating: 5/5 stars
Finished: 8-25-08

Just like the rest of The Lord of the Rings series, I can't say much more than what has already been said before about the books. I can say that it has been a long time since I had read the entire series, and I am really enjoying reacquainting myself with the characters and their world. I find it interesting, having recently rewatched the movies, to see how events were rearranged and changed to fit the film version.

This is one of those books that I think everyone should read at least once. You really can't appreciate the epic scale of the story until you've experienced it for yourself.

What a coincidence that we should both post of The Lord of the Rings on the same day. Or is it! I have to say that as I sat having tea at Ted Sandyman's Mill yesterday I did think you would have been exactly the right person to have for company. you would have understood the magic of the experience exactly.
