Tolkien, Jane Austen, Ursula K. Le Guin, GK Chesterton, George Orwell and a few other golden oldies. I rarely read anything contemporary, but A Song of Ice and Fire is pretty ok. I also like non-fiction, cooking,boxing, history and architecture, and I play way too many video games.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
It seems new every time I read it!
Favorite Tolkien character:
All of them! But seriously. Frodo and Eowyn. And Morwen. And Galadriel. And Sam. And Gollum. And Theoden. And Boromir and Faramir.
