LOTR and The Hobbit fans look what just came in. I have seen the movies and now it is time to read the books. Can't wait to start this adventure. The books are so small as small as a hobbit. I love it.

I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen,
of meadow-flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;
Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.
I sit beside the fire and think
of how the world will be
when winter comes without a spring
that I shall ever see.
For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green.
I sit beside the fire and think 
of people long ago,
and people who will see a world
that I shall never know.
But all the while I sit and think
of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet
and voices at the door.
- Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them Tetë minutat e parë, sjellin tërë historinë se çfarë na pret në 220 minutat e mbetur (versioni i gjerë) të historisë së Zotit të Unazave. Dhe çfarë historie është kjo se! Edhe njëzet vite më pas, si film, trilogji në fakt, ‘The Lord of the Rings’ i Peter Jackson mbetet trilogjia më e mirë…

“I should like to save the Shire, if I could - though there have been times when I thought the inhabitants too stupid and dull for words, and have felt that an earthquake or an invasion of dragons might be good for them. But I don't feel like that now. I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.”  – Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R. Tolkien (Book I, Chapter 3) [The Shire, concept art, by Tom Lay]
• Revolution of Tenderness is launching its first-ever reading group, an 8-week literary pilgrimage through The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume of Tolkien’s monumental trilogy. Our weekly meetings  will be enhanced with videos, rarely-heard recordings of Tolkien interviews, and a commemorative journal that will include inspiring quotes and prompts. We’ve chosen this novel because of a rare opportunity: the Rimini Meeting in Italy, Europe’s most-attended week-long cultural festival, is held annually in August. This year’s edition will feature an historic collaboration between the Meeting, Oxford University, and St. Andrews University in presenting The Tree of Tales, a remarkable exhibit on the life and work of J.R.R. Tolkien. The Revolution of Tenderness literary pilgrimage will culminate in watch parties of the Rimini event, and other behind-the scenes opportunities reserved exclusively for Revolution of Tenderness members.

Spending mothers day with my awesome mom by binge-watching the Lord of the Rings movies. Extended editions. Forgot how good these movies were.

i was rewatching the Fellowship of the Ring the other night and interesting thought struck me. i’ve seen it before mentioned that by the time Lord of the Rings takes place, Middle-Earth is mostly in a state of ruin. It’s Golden Age has passed. The race of men is failing, the elves are leaving, and everywhere you turn theres old ruins and memories of great kings from adventures that are now no more than stories and history.
but it struck me while watching the opening to the film that in many ways, that story feels like the one we should be watching. a great evil rises to rule the world. He gives gifts that seem generous at first but betrays them all in the end, turning once great men into his puppets. A mighty king and great warrior leads an army of men and elves into battle and dies. His son takes up his sword and in the last possible moment, slays the great evil. If that were the story we were told, we would be satisfied. It feels so.. complete, and yet it’s barely mentioned. All we get is a summary of events at the beginning of the movie to explain the backstory of the ring and get it where it needs to be for our real story to begin
It’s interesting that this story was the one to be told. It’s more confusing, more scary. There’s more characters, all spread out, so many plots and ideas and people to follow and understand. There is corruption, fear, and betrayal. But there is also hope, strength, and friendship. It’s not the straightforward good-vs-evil that that story is, and yet it’s the one that Tolkien chose to write
Now I’m not particularly familiar with Tolkien’s writing, and I still haven’t read his books. I’m only partially understanding of his world, and there’s still so much for me to learn, but it’s something that I found interesting, that this idea of these great stories being nothing more than history to be forgotten is so prevalent

Wish I had read this earlier than now. It was definitely worth the read and enjoyable from start to finish. I highly would recommend it if asked for book recommendations.

Frodo: If you were able to shapeshift, don't even deny that you would shapeshift into a hotter version of yourself over time.
Merry: What if I am already the hottest version of myself?
Sam: If I were able to shapeshift, I would be an elf.
Pippin: If you really thought about it, shapeshifting would be super useful. You could give yourself an extra arm, but only if you needed it, or eyes in the back of your head--
Merry: I would be an elf too.

The Ring! What shall we do with the Ring, the least of rings, the trifle that Sauron fancies? That is the doom that we must deem. As this doom is dooming, so too must we be deeming. This doomination requires us to deem and redeem, deemacy the likes of which is rare these days. How can we deemify such a doomical doom?

Gimli: If you think about it, "It's Raining Men" and "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" could be about the same event but from different perspectives.
Aragorn: Gimli, I'm begging you to stop--
Legolas: Let him finish.

I swear to god, The Lord of the Rings feels like home anytime I see gif sets, fanart, quotes, behind the scenes clips, old promo images, reunion shows, anything.
It's like this sense of being welcomed home after a long journey.
