A Not Unexpected Party: The LMB Book Club’s First Meeting

The Lonely Mountain Band’s new Tolkien Book Club gathered for the first time today at Bag End. Lennidhren hosted the meeting (with cookies!) and guests included Astleigh, Byrdie, Gaiagil, Lindorieh, Samwisse (Godwineson) and a friend from the Bounders of the Shire, Nelco.

We launched our read-along of The Hobbit by establishing a reading and discussion plan, as detailed here on the LMB forums.

Bag End’s library made a wonderful spot for a book discussion. We admired the paintings of Smaug the Dragon, the forest Mirkwood, and Bilbo’s map of Eriador. And we surmised that the book-covered writing desk in the corner must be where the old Hobbit penned the very story we are about to read!

After we established the reading schedule, Samwisse started us off by reading aloud the first paragraph of the chapter. What a delightful performance!

So, grab a copy of The Hobbit and The Silmarillion and join us this week as we begin our literary travels! Watch for the first discussion post Wednesday in the Tolkien category of these forums.
