Tolkien Reading Day is March 25th

Tolkien Reading Day is March 25th

As 2010 is the International Maritime Organization's Year of the Seafarer the theme chosen gives people a chance to read and think about exploring the undercurrents in the Numenorean romance the "Tale of Aldarion and Erendis" from "Unfinished Tales", the journeys and ships of the Teleri, the flight of the Noldor, and the voyages of Tuor and Earendil in "The Silmarillion", or Bilbo's poem about the latter in LotR. There are also the poems "The Happy Mariners" and at a pinch "Bombadil Goes Boating."
