Getting acquainted [Jan. 30th, 2008|11:23 am]
LOTR Community Reading Group

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]
[Current Music |the new age channel]

I just thought I'd post a few questions to others, so we can get acquainted with some of our newer friends!

1. Have you read LotR before, or is this a first time reading for you?

2. Did you read the books before the movies? If you read the books *after* the movies, how surprised are/were you at some of the changes?

3. If you read LotR before the movies, how did they affect your enjoyment/perception of the books?

4. If you've read the books before, what was your motivation to join a group for reading it yet again?

5.Tell us a little bit about yourself.

And I'll answer them myself, behind the cut.

Welcome to the LOTR Community Reading Group's LJ [Jan. 27th, 2008|07:43 pm]

This site is a companion to the Yahoo group Community_Reading_LOTR_v2. It is not necessary to join the Yahoo Group to post and comment here but you might enjoy belonging to the email group, too.

The LOTR Community Reading Group is reading and discussing J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" one chapter a week starting on Monday, January 28, 2008. The members of the group are welcome to post comments, questions, reviews, opinions and whatever else about hte chapter under discussion (and previous chapters as well--but please do not comment on chapters after the one for the week so not to spoil things for the first-time readers in the group).

This is primarily an LJ and group for discussing the books  However, commentary on how the films compare to the books in regards to characterization, changes from the events in the books and so forth are fine. No "OMG! Viggo/Orlando/FITB is so HAWT!" comments, please. There are other forums for actor worship out there; this is not the place for that kind of thing.

Other than that the only rules are: Be nice to each other, keep the language clean and have fun.
