    I would like to hear either "The Lay of Leithian" The Cantos XIII and XIV (its where beren and luthien are in angband and escape with the silmaril until carcharoth bites off berens hand) but with the correction of the Recommenced Lay pls! xD

    Or if thats too long (about 400 verses) maybe the story of "Gorlim Unhappy" how he betrayed Barahir in the Recommenced Lay (its Vers 199-340).

    That are my two favorite parts of the story! :) ...well actualy its Beren standing before Thingol onehanded "showing" him, that he got the silmaril, but unfortunatly Tolkien never wrote the Lay this far :(



    Edit: Wow... reading this now i guess im a nerd o_O

    Happy Tolkien Reading Day everybody! Remember to join us later at 6pm GMT for some of people's favourite passages from Tolkien's novels. This year the theme is Poetry and Song, but I'm sure you can read any other thing by Tolkien, if you like.

    The Audio-book will now start at 8:15pm BST rather than 8pm due to the new series of Doctor Who starting.
