Last year I purchased a copy of The Complete Guide to Middle-Earth. It is very helpful when you want to try to keep track of all the names of people and places in Tolkien’s works. This year I bought a copy of the daily calendar, A Guide To Middle-Earth 2004 Day-To-Day Calendar (you can still buy it, it’s not too late!). The calendar is great because it explains different things about Middle-Earth every day. I recommend that you get the calendar and the book if you haven’t already.
Looking at Amazon.com I realized that I should be able to link to the actual pages in the book corresponding to the word of the day. I don’t guarantee that I will do it every day but the word to learn today is Silmarilli, which you can read about at Amazon.com by clicking on the link.
