Lord of the Rings Slow Read Compilation
Reposted from the the not-dead-yet Google Plus group:
I just finished the copy-and-paste portion of compiling our Slow Read of Lord of the Rings into a single text. Took me about 3 hours total (including a program crash and lost work).
I haven't started any cleanup yet (so there's lots of junk picked up from the copy-and-paste), but the total is 166,108 words, about a third of the total of LotR itself!
This is going to be quite an artifact when it's finally wrought!
Unless anyone minds, I guess I'll post sporadic updates to this thread, so subscribe if you're interested!
