Well, besides Tolkien, I am interested in my family, music, literature, education, art, knitting...I don't think there is enough space here!
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
I was almost ten when I read The Hobbit for the first time in 1981 and then read LotR right away. I was totally hooked! I just loved every line of every page. I still read LotR at least once a year and can't get enough.
Favorite Tolkien character:
I fell head-over-heels in love with Aragorn when I was ten years old. He epitomized what I thought a man and a leader should be.
