For Tolkien fans worldwide, March 25th holds special meaning. It is the day the One Ring was destroyed and Sauron and his forces fell in defeat. So it is with an air of victory that we celebrate the end of the War of the Ring. Since 2003, when Tolkien Reading Day first began, Tolkien fans worldwide have gathered for the occasion to discuss Tolkien’s work and the captivating world he created.
The theme for 2011 is "Tolkien's Trees". This year's theme is allied with the "International Year of Forests".
Today, like any other day, is a good day to read.
The forest is at your door
The dark sleep is broken
The woods have awoken
The trees have gone to war
Roots rend, wood bends
The Ents have answered the call
Through branches now the wind sings
Feel the power of living things
The trees have gone to war!
