Reading, Tolkien, horseback riding, archery, astronomy, and everything else! (not in specific order:)
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
I was first introduced to Tolkien at the age of 8. I read The Hobbit in less than a week and have devoured everything Tolkien ever since!
Favorite Tolkien character:
From the Lord of the Rings: Théoden and Eowyn. I have always loved Rohan (partially because of the horses!). Although I love each and every member of the Fellowship those two are simply my favorites.
From the Silmarillion I loved both Fingolfin and Turgon.
Balin has always been my favorite dwarf from The Hobbit.
