I've gone entirely mad. I'm going to shelve 3 of the 5 books I'm reading for the moment (NOT Little Women, don't get flustered) and read The Silmarillion. I've wanted to read it for years and years and years, but never gotten up the guts. However, James at A Tolkienist's Perspective is hosting a read-along of The Silmarillion and The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings back-to-back-to-back, and I dig his blog a lot, and this seems to be the impetus I need to get started, so... I'm kind of taking a break from Middlemarch, North and South, and The Christian Imagination to slip The Silmarillion into my reading life. Which is nutty, but... so am I. Right?
