Jonathan Cox, Katie Sabo, and Chase Smith have finally reached the end of the Silmarillion proper with Chapter 24. For all intents and purposes they are now done with the Silmarillion and spend their time tying up all the loose ends of the book. Over the next two week, they will be reading the final epilogues of the Silmarillion and hope to start Tolkien's The Hobbit within the next month.
