Being a husband and father, cycling, and home improvements
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
1989 after watching the Ranking/Bass animated Hobbt version. I've read the Hobbit a dozen times, but prefer to hear the animated version as a "book on tape." I read the LOTR series only after watching The Two Towers Peter Jackson movie prior to the Return of the King being released.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Like me, Fingolfin was a younger brother who sought closeness and care with his siblings rather than distance and strife. He was loyal to those around him and devout to those he loved risking all to save them.
