My holiday readingPosted: December 29, 2008
Byrne, son of the Great Thomas the Learnéd from the land of the Swamp known as Louisiana and Lord of the Reeses, decedents of the Followers, which the Elves called Hildor, in the eve of the year of the reign of Obama, set out to read The Children of Húrin, a tale edited by Christopher Tolkien, heir to J.R.R. Tolkien, a man of Legend from a Land across a great Sea which is called The Kingdom United.
‘Tis a tedious read,’ said Byrne. ‘Why must the words be organized thus?’
But endure I will.
