Re: What are you reading?

I just reserved the first Murderbot book at my library.

So I shouldn't read them in order? That's what I get from the above conversation.

Re: Nature Pics

I read a blogger once describe this sort of scenery as "Tolkienesque". I totally agree.

Found it! Shortly before they enter Mirkwood:

This could belong in any number of our threads, but I guess I'll just put it here:

Re: News from Bree and other random discussions

Would you rather have one long interrupted life of a few thousand years, or spend several of those years dead?

Also, some of his deaths were quite unpleasant.

It will be lighter in no time. Eventually, as food begins to run out, we all want to make our luggage heavier.
Were they in Mirkwood Forest at this time?

Re: News from Bree and other random discussions

You're both correct, it's Sauron. Here's the tally I came up with:

First Age: killed by Huan
Second Age: drowned when Númenor is destroyed
Second Age: killed by Elendil and Gil-Galad
Third Age: permanently (as far as we know) killed when Ring is destroyed

Moral: crime does not pay

Actually died. In that his or her body became non-functional and "gave up the ghost".

Re: News from Bree and other random discussions

Just for fun, here's a trivia question for you all: Which Tolkien character died four times?

(maybe more; I can think of four times off the top of my head)

Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

Is the translation fairly accurate to the original?
