I am a Tolkien fan, but I am embarrassed to say that I have never quite made it through The Silmarillion. Fellow Ringers will know why. It is a darn hard read. Anyway, I was looking for a brief summary of this massive tome to be a guide because I would like to read another of Tolkien’s works on my winter break: The Children of Hurin which is an expansion of a story from The Silmarillion. Again, if you are a Ringer, you know about this book too.
In searching for a summary of “The Sil”, I found this amusing video. Quite frankly, it works for me! (Ringers, you’ll love this).
Oh, yeah, and the other thing I am going to do on my winter break is to have a Peter Jackson Hobbit/LOTR movie marathon. If I get through it, I may make it an annual event.
