 Another day, another few miles.  At least I'm getting somewhere; in the grand re-reading, the motley crew are stuck in the Council of Elrond.  A couple of days off, to accommodate travels and visits, proves to have been rather a good thing, as I was feeling rather good whilst running (not gasping and wheezing) and ran up a couple of hills (see previous brackets).

I am re-reading the Tome, in an effort to figure out where I am in the running and ... you know, it's really rather boring <waits for lightning to strike, then peers out cautiously>.  Endless then-this-then-that-then-long-fancy-name-then-weirdo-character.  Repeat.  Rinse.  Repeat again. Struggling to spot any character development.  It's all a bit unicorns against dark swirling clouds of stars, really.  Is this heresy?  I did read it as a teenager - I think it's about 20 years since I last re-read it - and I don't recall thinking it was all that marvellous then.  The years have not improved my opinion of it. 

Will plough on, if only to see whether I can find whatever groove others do in it.
