Right now, the place to be is the Reading Room.  Normally viewed as a thoughtful, scholarly part of the TORn Message Boards, it has pulled ahead in posts and participation… an occurrence that has triggered a friendly and spontaneous party.  Join the thready fun here.

One of the reasons for the spike in activity and interest is the ongoing Silmarillion Discussion as “Roomies” study the lives and love of Beren and Luthien.  Stroll through the Reading Room and discover The Silmarillion.

Another reason for the action is the launch of discussion on The History of the Hobbit.  Join this fascinating look at how it all started here.
