First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
Shortly after seeing the FOTR film in theaters, was about 20 years old at the time. I had both read The Hobbit and viewed the RB cartoon well before that, but originally had no idea TH and LOTR were linked until seeing FOTR. After reading LOTR I devoured whatever new Tolkien material I could get my hands on.
