    Well, I haven't advanced much, because of the celebrations and stuff, but since I've read it for 3 or 4 times already, I can tell you it's a fine piece of fantastic literature, but only if you're a tolkien enthusiast, because as yarock says, there are tons of names and places, and the editing is sometimes inaccurate and contradictory... you just need to study the elves genealogy for a bit...

    I read TChOH when it came out, and I've only read it once, I really enjoyed it, because the story is already told on the Silmarillion, but with less details.

    I checked out Hurin's tale in the first year of university, the dude fucks his sister unintentionally and gets her pregnant. Oldboy, bitch!
    Even though Tolkien was a bit racist, homophobic and slightly misogynist, he was kinda fucked up too...

    I'm trying to get as much "pleasure reading" in before i get swamped by my course readings.

    Right now, i'm making my way through Anthony Bourdain's "A Cooks Tour"; his stuff is always so fun to read. Now I sort of want to plan my next travel venture in order to try some of the food he's describing.

    Finished Jobs' biography - as I said: worth reading.

    I am about to start "A short history of the world" by H. G. Wells.

    I finally got through The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. For a young adults' book it was very very good. Worth the read.


    I am now reading Frida: The Biography of Frida Kahlo by Hayden Herrera. I'm not very far in, but so far am enjoying it a lot.

    I recently finished Romance of the Three Kingdoms Part 1 by Luo Guanzhong and loved it.

    I just started Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race by Jon Stewart. Pretty witty so far.

    The only reason I haven't started Part 2 of Guanzhong's epic is that I simply can't find it. Haha.

    I was bookworm before but now since most of the book that I've read have been put into movies. So, I'll better watch movies.

    I'm still reading Frida Kahlo's biography.

    Also reading Troilus and Criseyde by Chaucer, in a modern english translation because I don't have the patience for the Middle English
