March into Middle-earth: A Month to Celebrate Tolkien

March Into Middle-earth

As many of you probably know, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien is one of my absolute favourite books – I even wrote a post about how much I love it. I normally read it once a year, and have done since the age of 10, but have missed the past few years. I’ve been planning a buddy read of the books with my Goodreads book group, Dragons & Jetpacks, and thought I’d use the occasion to create an event on the blog.

Therefore, the month of March will be dedicated to celebrating Tolkien and his works set in Middle-earth!

I’m not planning on the event being quite as intense or huge as Sci-Fi Month, but I’d love for others to join in! Also unlike Sci-Fi Month, my blog won’t be filled with only content relating to this – I’ll still be posting other things. Right now the only post I know I will have for sure is my The Fellowship of the Ring read-along/discussion, but here are some ideas for posts (as much as for myself as for those who want to take part!):

  • Read-alongs of Tolkien’s work set in Middle-earth (or join in with my Buddy Read!)
  • Reviews of Tolkien’s works, or works of those who have listed him as an inspiration
  • Discussions of film adaptations
  • A look at the various video games based in Middle-earth
  • Discussions of Tolkien’s influence on the fantasy genre or other authors, or what he himself was influenced by
  • Discussions of the inhabitants of Middle-earth

  1. Totally in. Also now thinking about possible posts around Middle-Earth. This may absolutely turn into me geeking out about the Appendices, the Silmarillion and world-building.

  2. Sounds like a great event Rinn! I wish I could participate but I’m already all booked up for the month of March. I will however be posting something for Tolkien Reading Day like I’ve been doing for the past few years on March 25th πŸ™‚
