Tolkien full texts

Because my blog is getting a lot of traffic right now, I feel it’s a good opportunity to link to the online texts of Tolkien’s books for anyone who wants to read or reference them. 

Here is the Hobbit

Here is the Fellowship of the Ring

Here is the Two Towers 

Here if the Return of the King

Here is the Silmarillion 

Here is all 12 volumes of the History of Middle Earth (HoME)

Here is the Children of Húrin


“Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwells in the vast fortress of Angband in the North; and within the shadow of the fear of Angband, and the war waged by Morgoth against the Elves, the fates of Túrin and his sister Niënor will be tragically entwined.

Their brief and passionate lives are dominated by the elemental hatred that Morgoth bears them as the children of Húrin, the man who dared to defy him to his face. Against them Morgoth sends his most formidable servant, Glaurung, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire, in an attempt to fulfill the curse of Morgoth and destroy the children of Húrin.”

Beleg for princessofhaumea.

Left to right: Mablung, Beleg, Turin, Nienor. 

I actually really like Mablung because he literally spends the entire time facepalming at humans never sitting tight in nice secure hidden kingdoms and avoiding the attention of dark lords like good sindar elves would.

Also to the anon who asked, all my colouring is done on the computer in photoshop.
