What do one of the leading women in the feminist movement and the father of fantasy have in common?
I wrote a post, when I was still new to blogging, about Tolkien Reading Day. I didn’t even know how to space out my writing effectively at the time, but I was certainly passionate about the subject matter.
Instead of writing about this day from a purely new perspective, it’s one year later and I am sick and don’t think I exactly have the energy to come up with a whole new piece of thoughtful writing, without repeating myself.
is the original post.
My brother and I are attempting to read Lord of the Rings together, like we once did with Harry Potter. We like to read out loud, in braille, but it’s taking us a while. It’s such a large and long book and we only read when we see each other.
He is busy finishing up his first year of audio engineering and doesn’t exactly have much time for leisure activities such as reading. We should make it through Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and Return of the King by the year 2020 or later.
Also, another cause important to me is worth highlighting today.
I was not able to secure an interview with Gloria Steinem herself, but I did come close with the next best thing really.
Check the interview out…
Happy Birthday Gloria.
And now I am off to read some Riddles in the Dark.
What do either Steinem or Tolkien mean to you, if anything?
I would love to hear about it in the comments.
Come on…give me something to do to get through this nasty cold.

First of all, the LOTR soundtracks? Fantastic! I love that you and your brother are reading together – that is a wonderful, to read with someone. No matter how long it takes, it’s the time spent experiencing something with another person that matters.
My Husband and I both love Tolkien’s work. I’ll have to check out your links to the other posts tomorrow – far past my bedtime now!
Thank you. Yes, my brother and I are very close and it is something we always enjoy doing together. I think reading aloud should be done more often than it is.
I understand. I just appreciate you reading this and commenting.
