Okay folks, I am trying to be organized here and herd us towards some semblance of order. If anyone is interested in volunteering to be the discussion leader for a chapter of the Silm, please post a response here.

Being a discussion leader involves the following -

1. Actually reading the chapter

2. Posting a short summary of the chapter

3. Sharing your thoughts, comments, insights and questions that you had

4. Feeling like you did a wonderful thing by making Sindohte happy Razz


**********


The next chapter, "Of the Darkening of Valinor" will be covered by yours truly. However, volunteers are needed to read and lead off discussion for these upcoming chapters.

Of the Flight of the Noldor - Week of 7/26 (Anna)

Of the Sindar - Week of 8/2 (Anna)

Of the Sun and Moon and the Hiding of Valinor - Week of 8/9

Of Men - Week of 8/16

Of the Return of the Noldor - Week of 8/23 (BB)

Well since Anna and BB and jumping up and down eagerly, you have been assigned the task of doing the chapters that you requested. I really do think that BB needs to get beyond her sick little fascination with those Noldor Elves however Rolling Eyes

But there is the slight problem that NO ONE has volunteered for the week of 7/26, which is the next chapter that doesn't have a discussion leader yet.

All right folks, we still need discussion leaders for the next two weeks for these upcoming chapters -

Of the Sun and Moon and the Hiding of Valinor - Week of 8/9

Of Men - Week of 8/16


Please, please, please I am begging that someone signs up. Anna has been most gracious in summarizing the last two chapters for us. I would hate to have to tie her down and torture her into doing a third week Evil or Very Mad


**********


As an FYI - here are the upcoming chapters for September and beyond. It looks like we should be done around the end of November/first week of December. If we wanted to speed things up, we could do two chapters per week, but just have two different discussion leaders. That would require more people being willing to volunteer to as a discussion leader. Just let me know what you think -

Of Beleriand and its Realms
Of the Noldor in Beleriand
Of Maeglin
Of the Coming of Men into the West
Of the Ruin of Beleriand and the Fall of Fingolfin
Of Beren and Luthien
Of the Fifth Battle: Nirnaeth Arnoediad
Of Turin Turambar
Of the Ruin of Doriath
Of Tuor and the Fall of Gondolin
Of the Voyage of Earendil and the War of Wrath
Akallabeth
Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age

Anna/Andreth has graciously volunteered to lead discussion on the next two chapters -

Of the Sun and Moon and the Hiding of Valinor - Week of 8/9

Of Men - Week of 8/16


That means you are off the hook for the moment BB, but I will be keep my eye on you Wink


Would folks please begin thinking about what chapters they might be interested in volunteering for starting the first week of September. Oh and as I said before, would there be any interest in having two discussion leaders per week so we could finish the Silm up faster?
