I like getting together with friends, watching movies, reading, enjoying fine wine and food, and reveling in the camaraderie of fandom with my fellows.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't read Tolkien's famous trilogy until my 30's. I worked in a bookstore during high school and college and the Tolkien fans were a little off-putting in their enthusiasm, insisting I read them. So many years wasted. :(
Favorite Tolkien character:
I love every member of the Fellowship. Can't pick a favorite, although I have a soft spot for good guys.
