Jo’s Book Nook, the home of our non-Harry Potter Book Club, has now opened the communal reading of the first novel in J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy: The Fellowship of the Ring. Located in our Leaky Lounge forum, Jo’s Book Nook offers all registered Lounge members the opportunity to join in with their fellow Book Clubbers to discuss the many details of this most lush and layered fantasy novel. The reading of The The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring starts today and runs through May 2nd. Be sure to jump into the discussions today over on the Leaky Lounge.

On a related note, voting is now open to choose the next reading selection for Jo’s Book Nook via this link.

Enjoy!

Woe. Have fun and enjoy reading, all participants!Avatar ImageHermioneWwannabe says: Woe is I. no time no time no time. some day i'll go on a wild chase, capture that time and keep him forever in a comfortable little cage in my basement. hmm..I should work on getting a house with a basement.Avatar ImageNargleCatcher says: This will be fun!Avatar ImageDragon220 says: Lotr are one of the best, if not the best, book series ever. And if i had the time to, i would read this book again.Avatar Imagefantasylover12001 says: Interesting, I would join but I'm already in the middle of a book and I'm not sure where my copy of LotR is...Avatar ImageFanaticFangirl says: I tried to read the books, but I just couldn't finish them. They don't leave much to the imagination (that's why I love HP and Narnia series so much).Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: Cool! I love the LOTR series that is another terrific series of the fantasy genre.Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: Yeah that is so true about Harry Potter and Narnia leaving more to the imagination. I also love how descriptive Harry Potter is to make you imagine the scenes and parts in the books perfectly.Avatar Imagebecmajec says: such an excellent book!Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: LOVED THE BOOKS ALONG WITH THE MOVIES THEY WERE DONE WELL FOR THERE TIME BETTER GRAPHICS NOW DAYS AND GETTING BETTER. WILL HAVE TO FIND TIME TO JOIN IN AS THERE IS A LOT OF INFO IN THE BOOKSAvatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: Very good to know that people can now discuss The Fellowship Of The Ring on The Leaky Cauldron. Very good movie, ok videogame and gave up on the book. Other people might feel a great deal of enthuisiasm about it though!Avatar ImageName Unknown says: I've just finished rereading! I might have to join in!Avatar Imagesp00kym00ny says: I've never done this before, so I have a question: Can I read the book for the first time while doing the discussion or do I have to have already read it?Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: I will be joining in the discussion when I can! I also love that the Leaky-Cauldron.org shows people other good series of fantasy out there. Harry Potter will always be the best though, because nothing can top HP!Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: spooky moony, I'm pretty sure you can read the book for the first time & join in...just watch out for spoilers..Avatar ImageWimsey says: Well, it's not really a novel per se (it's more of an epic written in novel form), and it's not the first, either: remember that the publishing company divided Tolkien's tale into 3 volumes without his permission! (The name "Fellowship of the Ring" was created by someone at HM, not Tolkien: and don't get him started on "The Two Towers"!)Avatar ImageAccioSarah says: If it wasn't for Lord of the Rings, I never would have gotten into Harry Potter! So I ought to thank Mr. J.R.R Tolkien. =)Avatar Imagebudgie says: I have a copy of the "Fellowship of the Ring" that I take into restaurants to wait for seating, service, and enjoy with the meal. I have a definine image with the different scenes, but after seeing the films, there really is room for imagination to fill in the details. To spooky moony: do watch out for spoilers.Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Cool! :DAvatar ImageKimberlyZ says: i'll try...Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Yeah, I have been waiting for this!Avatar ImageWimsey says: Um, isn't it the author's job to describe his/her imagination to us? I'm paying them to be imaginative: I can be imaginative for free on my own time! (Shorthand: the more left to the reader's imagination, the worse the writing.)Avatar Imagenoe_lover_42 says: ok cool :) <<--- Add Me On Myleaky :]Avatar ImageSidish_black6 says: Great :)Avatar ImageHappy_Orange says: OOohh i've nearly read the HObbit, i guess i'll have to read the next one - is it good?Avatar ImageHappy_Orange says: OOohh i've nearly read the HObbit, i guess i'll have to read the next one - is it good?
