About So, You Want to Read Tolkien

Welcome to So, You Want to Read Tolkien's Patreon Page!

Join Caitlin, Emmy, and Rachel as they read through Tolkien's main body of work and discuss everything, chapter by chapter, in a welcoming manner.

Don't want to read the books, but want the information? Don't worry, we'll sum everything up for you! And show you maps and family trees and all the information you could ever want about the migration of the elves to the west, how they discover murder, and migrate back east. 

Want to know when we think two boys should've been making out (since it isn't as if there are dynamic characters that aren't male in these stories)? Don't worry, we'll talk about that too! And make Emmy real uncomfortable about it when they're mostly, kinda, sorta, related. 

Also, there's apparently a TV show coming up? Made by Amazon? There's probably a good chance we're going to discuss that as well!

If you are considering supporting us, THANK YOU! We love doing the show and doing our best to be the opposite of gate keepers on this Very Serious Fantasy series. And we appreciate your willingness to help us offset our costs. 

Hannon Allen!
