Hiking, embroidery, movies, Harry Potter (and do I even need to say LOTR), anything medical, and nature.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
I never heard of LOTR until the 1st movie came out. My best friend in college was fanatic about it and wouldn't allow me to watch the movie till I read the books. Needless to say I fell absoultely in love and the rest is history!
Favorite Tolkien character:
Faramir! He is my perfect (fictional) man. He's strong, smart, caring, understanding and sensitive. Plus he ends up living in Ithilien, the most beautiful area in Middle Earth.
