50 in 52 Project quotes from The Lord of the Rings

50 in 52 Project Quotes!

Two quotes from The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien

“The tale it grew in telling.” (from Tolkien’s forward to the 2nd edition)

“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”

1,008 pages later…

Finally – after 1,008 pages, I finished The Lord of the Rings for the 50 in 52 Project, my fundraiser for RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest, National Network)!

I’ve read the book an untold number of times since I was in sixth grade, but this time was tough because of the time constraints. However, there is NO speeding through Tolkien. One must linger and be amazed, and I was (as always).

More info on the next book will be posted soon!

Won’t you please sponsor me in the 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge?
