All things LOTR and Tolkien. I also enjoy reading George RR Martin and the Game of Thrones hbo series.
I am a computer geek by trade and enjoy knitting and yoga in my free time. (Not necessarily at the same time!)
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
While I've read The Hobbit a few times (two of those times aloud), I never got around to finishing the Fellowship.
12 years ago, when my daughter was 8 - we started reading the trilogy together. Aloud. With british accents. Just in time to see Jackson's films. We were totally obsessed with LOTR!
I've since re-read the trilogy twice and have read Silmarilion and several other works by Tolkien.
Favorite Tolkien character:
I've always loved Eowyn. I suppose I always connected with her devotion to her family. Gandalf is my favorite male from the books (Aragorn from the films).
