    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.

    Sit by the firelight's glow
    Tell us an old tale we know
    Tell of adventures strange and rare
    Never to change
    Ever to share
    Stories we tell will cast their spell
    Now and for always

    I am sorry to say that the audio-book will be delayed until 8:35pm BST tomorrow because that's when Doctor Who ends. Stupid football ruining everything :mad:.

    Since today is the 80th anniversary of The Hobbit first being published I thought would be a good day to officially announce that, after I finish The Lord of the Rings, The Audiobook will continue with The Hobbit.
    I have also been given the idea of doing a Valentine's Day Special of sorts that would be a reading part of the Beren and Luthien book that was published recently, namely The Tale of Tinuviel, and if all goes to plan I may be able to get other people to help me with the reading... But I need to know if you guys would want it ;). The special would take place on the 11th of February, the Saturday before Valentine's Day because even though it's a lot to do in one go I'm not able to do The Audiobook on a Wednesday, sorry.

    I look forward to hearing Beren woo Luthien with Uncle Mando's voice.
