Almost Missed It ~ National Tolkien Reading Day


Well, it’s already over in places like Tbilisi, Georgia or Melbourne, Australia but, for most of my readers, it’s time to CELEBRATE !!

Dramatic Reading from “The Hobbit” ~ Click This Image…

And, I got tipped off, while doing my Google News scan, with an article on NJ.com—“New Jersey’s largest website for local news, sports, entertainment, jobs, autos, real estate and information…”.

Would Not have thought to look there… :-)

From the NJ.com article (do go read the rest...):

Tolkien Reading Day, the day of remembrance honoring the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit author J.R.R. Tolkien, was set up by the Tolkien Society in 2003 and is celebrated annually March 25. 

“Each year, the society celebrates the high fantasy writer, poet and Oxford professor by encouraging fans to promote the legacy of Tolkien’s work by reading or revisiting their favorite passage.

“In particular, the organization wants libraries, museums and, above all, schools to participate in the Tolkien day of remembrance.

What’s the theme for Tolkien Reading Day 2016? — Life, death, and immortality.”

Share it on Twitter by using the hashtag #TolkienReadingDay :-)

    I enjoyed very much reading this excellent story ,thank you Alex as I see you are always still writing away as you have since I first was reading your poetry and then came ( My Evolution )
    A Man as a writer and poet as well deserves much admiration through all these years of writing.
    Thank you Alex.
    Sincerely.

    Catherine/Katharina.

      Oh, my, Katharina, thank you, So Much; but, it is just as important that someone like you has been there over the years, supporting my efforts with your thoughts and feelings :-)
