Seems that the next discussion has to be postponed until December.

If nobody else appears, I can take that one myself, but it probably won't start until after the 9th in that case, due to my involvement in the WCA:s. But then, my idea is to tackle all the three Lothlórien chapters at one time. What do the others think?

To my horror, I have just realized I was supposed to do chapter 6 in October in addition to chapter 5. I apologize sincerely. Would you prefer to wait then and do all three in December? That is okay with me if you really prefer to do them all. Sigh. I've messed up the schedule.

Sheesh I'm so embarrassed. :cry2:

In a way, the next three chapters belong together more than chapters 5 and 6 so, it won't be a problem to do them in the same discussion.

I'll try and update the schedule this weekend. If anybody thinks that they could do the summary for the last two chapters of the FOTR in January or February, please let me know as soon as possible.

I'll try and put up the Lothlórien chapters next weekend. As I said in a post above, I was caught up with something else until last weekend, but now, I should be able to get the summaries written.

And, still paging for someone to take the next two chapters...

Well, I suppose I could, mine would also be a bit late, I think I could get it done around the end of the first week of January. I believe I will remember from my error of last time to do both chapters and not just one.

All right, the Lothlórien chapters are up.

WyrtWif, you can gladly take the next ones. And, I don't think there's any hurry with them; probably the holiday season will be rather quiet here, and there's something to discuss about the present chapters still in January. :)

Okay, will be working on this in the next few days. Have read the summary and questions for last month and plan to reply on those first.

Summary is up, will get the discussion questions up as soon as I can. I am so very sorry it has taken me so long. Inspiration is eluding me, pursue it though I may. Please feel free to begin the discussion!

edit: Questions are up. :)

Thank you, WyrtWif! :)

I'll try and participate more in the discussion, both for these chapters and some of the previous ones, now that I'm on a medical leave until mid-March.

Medical leave? I do hope you are recovering quickly!

My kids are attending karate classes again, and so now I will have time to review and make notes again as I did last year. It is so very convenient to go over my thoughts while waiting for them to finish class. :wink:

Thank you, WyrtWif; I'm recovering like I should. :)

Anybody willing to take up the first two chapters of Book III, for the March discussion?

Welcome to the club, Morwenna! :) It's nice to get new people to join the discussion!

If nobody else is ready to take up the next chapters, I'll probably have to do them myself. But, they'll have to wait until late April or early May, I'm afraid.

If you want to take them up, they're all yours... :P Otherwise, I'll try and put something up next weekend. Unless someone else wants to give them a go, of course.

I haven't touched LOTR for ages again (except to look up the occasional fact or quote here and there). :(

Seeing some dear names in the last post column of the forum recently, I thought I'd peek in nevertheless. :D

So, um, as the inattentive student asks: where are we? :oops:
Is WyrtWif's Chap. 9 & 10 of Book II the most recent one or have I overlooked something?

TH, yes, the last two chapters of Book II are the latest installation. I was trying to get Chapters 1 and 2 of Book III up in this month, but RL came in the way so, they'll probably be up in the beginning of June.

Unless someone else wants to give them a go, of course.

If I can do any, it will probably be in the fall. Assuming I am not the only hanger-on left by then, of course.

Hello everyone!

Although the sheer amount of information in the VTSG is somewhat overwhelming for a TORC newcomer as myself, I very much look forward to meeting you all and joining in on some lively discussions.
