I am working a MOC for the contest so I will post it here also!

Nice, I will also post my contest entry here. Tonight I will probably watch the Fellowship of the Ring so you can expect a burst of inspiration(on my part).

I love the extended versions. The other ones are too short and I don't like them very much, because they don't contain the coolest scenes (Concerning Hobbits, Dwarven Women etc.) I also read the Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, LOTR appendixes, the atlas of Middle Earth and many more, but I don't have the People of Middle Earth .... Is it a good book ?

I have read all three LOTR books and the Hobbit. We watched half of the Fellowship of the Ring last night because it was too late to watch the whole thing. We were reminded again how bad library movies are when the words "skipping over damaged area" appeared on the screen. Luckily we only missed about 5 seconds so we continued to watch it until the prancing pony where Strider said his epic line "are you afraid?" and Frodo answered with an even more epic line of "yes I am" which immediately was put in the dark by the most epic line of all "not enough, I know who's hunting you" and then the words appeared again for awhile until the Ringwraiths were stabbing beds. so we paused it and switched to Netflix (which I don't think was the extended version). We hope to finish the movie later this week because tonight we are going over my grandmothers to watch Tangled. Sorry for the lengthy explanation.

Beat's me! I've read LOTR, Hobbit, Silmarillion, and the appendixes (which are very helpful when acting in Middle Earth related plays). I haven't read any others. Hobbit was my favorite. It isn't as dark as LOTR, and Gollum is funnier.

You could borrow it from us if maybe?

Thanks, I think we'll just finish it on Netflix.

I agree! I think the Hobbit has the best athmosphere and the battle of the five armys is my favorite battle, because it is the only one in the third Age, where dwarves, elves, eagles and men fight against wolves and orcs.Can't wait for the movie version!

The DVD from the library was expanded but I'm not sure about Netflix.

I love all the books equally. each one is written differently. the hobbit is more magical, LOTR is more epic, the silmarillion and the histories of ME are written like oral history being passed down. I like the atlas of middle earth, because it shows maps and sketches of the places we are building. right now I'm building a model of the throne room of Gondr, and perhaps the rest of the tower of ecthelion, which I might not be able to do without the book. I also like tolkiens languages of middle earth. it makes learning quenya and sindarin very easy.
