That time we read The Lord of The Rings
Yes, way back in Common Era 2000, library staff plus fellow enthusiasts (including LOTR actor John Rhys-Davies) accepted the challenge of reading The Lord of the Rings in its entirety. It took several days, and it was all filmed on good old VHS tapes, which are probably still hanging around somewhere.
Has anyone else come across memorabilia like this while tidying up their house during Lockdown..? (I even still have my invitation to the opening of the “new” Library in 1996!)
