Patience Is A Virtue

And I beg it of those who’ve become regular readers, anticipating the next post. Unfortunately, I’m kind of in a holding pattern until “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is released in December. Initially, the third film of this trilogy was set to come out in July of 2014. But for reasons no doubt justifiable in the eyes of Peter Jackson the release date has been pushed back to December 2014.

I had originally planned to go through the remainder of the book shortly after I had finished with the second act so that I would be done well in advance of “There and Back Again”. And since there is now an additional five months delay for that movie I’ve decided to pause here.

I’ll be back in late December to post my review of “The Desolation of Smaug” which will be followed by a “revisit” of those chapters covered in the film - similar to what I did after “An Unexpected Journey”. Sorry for the lack of updates until then but in the meantime enjoy the archives covering The Lord of the Rings and the selections from Unfinished Tales of Middle Earth if you haven’t already done so.
