Tolkien Reading Day 2021

Happy Tolkien Reading Day

March 25th marks the day in Middle-earth when the One Ring was destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom. That’s why today we celebrate Tolkien Reading Day.

The Tolkien Society has declared the 2021 Tolkien Reading Day theme to be “Hope and Courage”.

The Two Towers

Read something penned by Tolkien to mark the occasion. Here’s a funny quote from Gandalf, just after he reunites with Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli.

“I was talking aloud to myself. A habit of the old: they choose the wisest person present to speak to; the long explanations needed by the young are wearying.” – Gandalf, The Two Towers
