LOTR Fellowship of the Ring read-along starts this weekend!
Posted September 1, 2011on:
Because everyone has different versions, we’ll be referring to the chapter names in each book. Think 7-9 chapters per week, 3-4 weeks per book, with discussion questions going out on Thursdays and fun discussions back and forth every Saturday.
1st week A long Expected Party thru Fog on the Barrows down (8 chapters), discussion starts on SEPT 10.
2nd week At the sign of the prancing Pony thru The Ring Goes South (7 chapters), Discussion starts on SEPT 17
3rd week A Journey in the Dark thru The Breaking of the Fellowship (7 chapters), discussion starts on SEPT 24
Stay tuned for reading schedules for the The Two Towers and The Return of the King and later The Children of Hurin.
