    To celebrate Tolkien Reading Day this Saturday 25th March*, I am asking you the people of Minecraft Middle-Earth, to join me on discord in the Tours/events channel at 6PM GMT for some readings, hopefully from some of you, it can be anything Tolkien, your favourite line from Leaf by Niggle, your favourite lay from LOTR, your favourite riddle from Riddles in the dark. All I ask is this, keep it Tolkien, say if and what you are willing to read in this thread and why it is your favourite. If you want something read but don't want to or can't read it yourself then I will be willing to read it.

    Thanks for reading, and I hope to 'see' you there.

    P.S. The audio-book will be continuing at its regular time of 8PM GMT, with the chapters: A Journey in the Dark & The Bridge of Khazad-dûm.

    * The day Frodo destroys the One Ring and completes the mission of The Fellowship.

    It goes on from 6PM to 8PM and there maybe some in the break between chapters in the audio-book. Good luck Eriol.

    I would love to hear some lines out of "The History of Middleearth Vol3: The Lays of Beleriand". Even tho i have the book im afraid i wont be able to read it. Its already hard to read for native speakers (let alone foreign speakers), so I wont even try to live up to what this Tolkien-poems deserve.
    Also the great lays are pretty long (Children of Hurin is more than 2200 verses and Beren and Luthien has more than 4000!) and unfinished (sadly).

    But ya, i would realy love to hear one or two Cantos from that.
