  1. Aren't you interested in reading the Poetic Edda? I've always enjoyed reading Norse mythology. Also, I believe, Tolkien drew a great deal of inspiration from these works.

    I'm so excited to see The Narrow Road to the Deep North on your list!!!:D

    1. Upon your recommendation, I added the Poetic Edda. Thanks Risa, and thanks for the feedback on the other lists as well. I may not get to The Narrow Road for a while, but when I do, I'll compare notes with you. Cheers.
