Books Worth Reading
March 25 is Tolkien Reading Day. This day is an annual event, launched by The Tolkien Society in 2003. It has the aim of encouraging the reading of the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, and the use of Tolkien's works in education and library groups. The date was chosen in honour of the fall of Sauron, in Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. The day was originally suggested by columnist Sean Kirst, of the Syracuse, NY Post-Standard newspaper. He has organized Tolkien Reading Days every year since 2008.

The Historian. I stay away from over-long books and should have with this one. Vampires, Dracula -- not my thing, historical research & Oxford libraries were the draw. People kept disappearing which helped initially but was overdone by end. Places visited provided a bit of armchair traveler but characters needed work. Not the worst book I've read but not in the top 1000.
