NOW AVAILABLE: The Fourth The Lord of the Rings Discussion of October 2007 - March 2009 (but no Footerama or Quant...)

ALSO, DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND: The First Bored of the Rings Discussion!

The Fellowship of the Ring - Book I

And so start sixteen months of fun

With our third triennial run

Through the long Tolkienic Tome

By those who call this Room their home.

 

The Fellowship of the Ring - Book II

So stretch your legs and give a cheer

 To make the others come in here

 And join the board that knows no fluff:

 (It's true we shun the hugs and stuff).

 

     

The Two Towers - Book III

The threads are long and very prosy,

Even Curious gets dozy!

And see the scholars over there:

For each there is a squishy chair.

 

 

The Two Towers - Book IV

Citing HoME while slyly winking:

Thinking hard or hardly thinking?

Both Main and Movie back away;

We even scared a troll today.

     

The Return of the King - Book V

We can write a long footnote

On every word that Tolkien wrote.

And despite the Silmarillion

We wish he'd writ another million.

 

The Return of the King - Book VI

So crack the book and spread the map,

And don't forget your thinking cap.

Some coffee, too, is smart to bring;

Come grab a seat and read the Ring!
