Future Dictator of small, as-yet undiscovered country
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
Grade school, because I was reading at a higher level than my grade, so I was sent to the library during certain "periods" to keep me occupied. That is not to say I actually understood what I was reading until much later.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Legolas, because everything he said was chipper and poetic. Not that this carried over into the films...
