To John Ronald on his 117th birthday...
i believe in Middle Earth
Tonight I raise a glass of New Glarus Brewery's "Fat Squirrel" Nut Brown Ale (think of Newcastle Brown Ale, only locally made, and you'll get the idea) to John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. To Beren.

I usually try to read The Lord of the Rings once a year, but I believe I failed to do it in 2008, so I'm starting it tonight. I'll be reading my 50th anniversary edition, and cross-referencing with my copy of Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull's The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion. Musical accompaniment will be provided by all 12 hours of Howard Shore's scores for the films.

Take that, tor.com, with your once in a blue moon chapter by chapter reading!
