You know what I've realized... Can't Post

If this doesn't belong here...sorry :)

Now back to my epiphany!
I was discussing this with my mother yesterday and she agreed with me.
I've spent the past few months exploring Middle Earth and all of its characters and various places.
And I've talked to many great people because of that.

And I've come to realize how much people really care about Tolkien's world and works.
Much more so then any other “book world”.

I mean there are die-hard HP and Twilight fans…But, at least to me, it seems pretentious (Only word I can find…) and plastic in a way (no offence to any fans out thereWink)... Honestly, I like both of those stories very much and the movies are entertaining…But there isn’t that love like there is with Lord of the Rings (etc.)

I mean people become Tolkien Linguists, Scholars, Experts, and teach entire classes about him and his writings. And don’t become completely obsessed and enthralled because of a sparkly immortal.

Maybe I’m just crazy and gone off on one of my rambles…But does anyone remotely agree?

NARF since summer '08 when I wouldn't read anything written by Tolkien because my Mum called it classic literature...
