It was mentioned in the LOTR thread that some people have trouble retaining information, and I know for most, including me, this read can be quite boring. I say we do the most with what we've got. Each other, in good company. biggrin.gif

My proposal is that all who have the books, or can get hold of them, should read through the apendicies in scheduled intervals along with the rest of the group. This way we all can come here and talk about what we've read, and what this means to us in relation to the story.

Obviously, this would be for those of us who have already read the trilogy, as to not spoil the story for others. It wouldn't have to be a nightly thing, unless we decide to go with that, but I think it's best to talk here 24hrs at the most from the time we read the section. That'll make sure we keep it fresh in our minds.

Not only would this be the most fun way to read the apendicies, but it'll also make us pay closer attention to what we read, so we can bring something interesting to the discussion when we meet up.

So, is anyone else interested? Or am I just being too much of a geek? tongue.gif

If we get a group together, I suppose the first question would be, do we start with 'Concerning Hobbits', or 'The Apendicies'? laugh.gif

Who knows. If this takes off, we may just go on to tackle the trilogy itself, and open the doors for some new first time readers. king.gif

OR, I would be interested as I have all the books, but shamefully I have never read any of them..........yet!

And don't give up. Sometimes it takes a wee while for people to find their way into here! wink.gif

Boy isn't that the truth, CR!! Well, my books are packed away at my mom's house, but I would be willing to go dig 'em out and read away at the appendices, if you are still willing OR.... Don't know if anyone else would be, but hopefully popping the thread out here again may get someone else interested...
