It’s time to put the blog in Balrog, baby! Today kicks off the Lord of the Rings (re)readalong being hosted by sj of Snobbery, and I am really excited about this one. My introduction to this series came in the form of cartoon movies that I watched with my dad when I was a little kid. Then I read the books when I was ten-eleven-twelve (I can’t remember exactly). I haven’t read the series since then, so I’m going to feel like I’m reading them for the first time (no, I haven’t seen the most recent movie adaptations).
If you’re interested in joining us–anyone is welcome–here are a few links where you can find more information about the readalong, the reading schedule, and some fantastic posts about The Silmarillion, which sj was nice enough to summarize for those of us who haven’t read it and don’t intend to anytime soon. She rocks!

Middle-earth, here I come! Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
