Announcing...

Hello, my poor, neglected blog followers.  I do believe I've been absent for...almost three weeks now, which is mainly due to the holiday season--my family was asked to host Thanksgiving, and one thing led to another, and I ended up not having much energy or time left for blogging.
Still, I am here now, with a bit of an Announcement.  As some of you may remember, I did a Lord of the Rings blog party last year with Ashley, but this year we found that neither of us could fit it into our schedules.  So there will be no party like there was for Desolation of Smaug, but I couldn't let the weeks leading up to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies go unnoticed, either. 
Therefore, I'm going to do a challenge rather like the Jane Austen one I did awhile ago, and do a Tolkien Month.  I'll try to do at least one post per week during December, and keep it all Tolkien--Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and maybe some Silmarillion.  We'll see. ;)
(There will be one exception to this, as I'm participating in the blog tour of Becoming Nikki--go the author's blog or her Goodreads page for more information on that.)
If you'd like to participate in this, let me know in a comment.  Then just tag all Tolkien-related posts you do this December with "Tolkien Month" or something of that sort and send me the link!
And to kick all this off, I'll start by asking you all who your favorite Tolkien character is--you can list as many as you want. :D
Oh, and to all the people who have tagged me, thank you very much!  I'll combine all my answers into one big post sometime during January.
Doesn't this look AMAZING?!

Yay!!! I'm incredibly excited and sad about The Battle of the Five Armies, and this sounds like so much fun! You can count on me to join.(-: And by the way, I'm glad you're back and blogging again!

*excited squealing because even I won't be able to participate it will still be awesome*
:D
(Oh, and I have actually started rereading the Hobbit in spite of not having the time. I started reading "Tolkein: Author of the Century" (by Tom Shippey, VERY highly recommended) and got so into the Tolkein mindset that I decided I HAD to before the film. Heehee.)

How fun to have a Tolkien month, and of course it make sense to do it in December! I don't know if I'll get around to writing Tolkien posts or not, but I'm happy to read them.

As for my favorite character, it's either Bilbo, Frodo, or Gandalf the Grey. :)
