First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
Technically I started on New Year's Eve of 2001, but I couldn't get past the prologue. I had a nightmare and decided to wait a little longer until I really got cracking. Then I saw "Fellowship of the Ring" on a school trip and I fell in love. I devoured the books within a couple of months and from there it was history. :)
Favorite Tolkien character:
Peregrin Took. Despite being a hobbit, he has very human qualities that I can relate to. He has a great sense of humor and zest for life, but he also has flaws and a major character arc. He is one of the most endearing characters and will forever be my favorite.
