Special for Sundays

Special for Sundays is a weekly feature hosted by Gabbing About Books and In Which Ems Reviews Books. Each week will rotate to a different topic of discussion.

4th Sunday: A book on your TBR list, why you picked it, and when do you hope to read it

I’ve had this book for a few years now. I’m a Tolkien fan so it would be odd if I didn’t select it to read at some point, right? I had thought to read it last year along with my History of Middle-Earth series, but I’ve gotten to the point where I want to save all my Tolkien books for last in my quest to decimate my TBR pile. It’s my intend to read all those other books I got for very cheap or ones I have forgotten why I bought them because I imagine I could free up some shelf space. I know I won’t part with my Tolkien books and I don’t want to feel overwhelmed by other books that need to be read while I’m leafing through the pages so there’s no rush on it. I doubt I will get around to Letters for this year unless I get some major reading done in the next eight months, but it might be something to look forward to for 2013.

  1. Interesting, might be something to look into at some point when my TBR mountain declines a bit! I have to go through some of my books as I found some that I have on goodreads that I may not want to read now, which might help with the mountain.

    I am so glad you joined in this week!!

  2. I know some people read straight through this. I never have. I have referenced it, using the index to find topics of interest, and I have sat down and read a few random letters at a time. I love Tolkien, but I think this is better, as I would probably get bored during an attempt to plow straight through it. The end result, however, is that I have not actually read all of it.

Dear reader, won't you share your thoughts?
