Re: [TolkienDiscussions] Re: Re-reading 'The Hobbit" 20+ years later......
- We did a Silmarillion discussion a few years back which was moderated by Matt West (a member of this group). He summarized each chapter and then we discussed it. I put together these chapter summaries into a single Word document which can be found in the Files section of this group under the title Silmarillion Chapter Discussion.Here's a link to the files section:Debbie"One does not read The Silmarillion; one either abandons it in bored disgust, or else one lives in it."

Oh, I would love to read the Silmarillion as a group too. I've read it
alone, and got lost. I enjoy singing, so the idea of the world being
sung into being is intriguing.
As close as it is to the holidays, I'd rather read the Hobbit first and
then definitely the Silmarillion after New Year, when I have more time.
