Celebrate Tolkien Reading today by, uh, reading!

March 25, 2012 at 4:32 pm by MrCere  - 

Join TheOneRing and the Tolkien Society, who started the event, by celebrating Tolkien Reading Day! Held annually since 2003, it is meant to encourage reading and is a great day to dust off a copy of one of J.R.R. Tolkien’s many works and dig in. (It also marks the downfall of Barad-dûr and the passing of Sauron, but that happened long before 2003.) Many schools mark the day with an in-class read, but since this year it falls on a Sunday, parents will be in charge of helping children celebrate but reading to pets, the infirm or yourself is also more than acceptable. Enjoy!

    I love this idea! Because people like Tolkien need to be celebrated more by general society, rather than all these reality television ‘stars’, and music ‘icons’ of today. His messages, hidden beneath innumerable and captivating words, breathes life into me each and every time I read them; it would certainly do our culture some good to step away from the TV once in a while, and pick up a book. Besides all that, he’s just a damn good author.  😉
