The Council of Elrond

The Council of Elrond or as they like to be known as 'The Original' Council of Elrond is a massive site. There are pages for the New Line Cinema movies, Elrond's Library has artists, Tolkien's poetry, summeries, a book forum and 'book club'. There is a Tolkien section with biography, artwork, articles to name a few topics.

There is a humor section, media section, fonts and you can even find recipes. I have not begun to dive into CoE but I can say once you go digging it is easy to find your way home again. It's huge, informative and a delight.

His house was perfect, whether you liked food, or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking, best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.

Official Lord of the

The Official Lord of the is New Line Cinemas official movie site for all three LoTR movies. You can still find interviews, movie stills, merchandise, videos (including behind the scenes), downloads and more.

New Line has also linked themselves to The Hobbit: The Official Movie Blog. Whether you want to take a walk down memory lane or are new to these movies this site is still helpful.

Science Fiction Timeline Site

The Science Fiction Timeline Site is quite cool. There is a Tolkien page. There is a The Reading Order Calculator as well as Reading Order Facts page. It's quite a challenge to read Tolkien's stories in chronological order but here they have given you the indicators to do just that. Fascinating and mind-blowing to think about it right?

The Science Fiction Timeline Site is maintained by Larry King of the University of Washington. And is contributed by various other Sci-Fi junkies.

You've got to check it out.
