A few introductory questions (hers) and answers (mine).
1. Tell us your history with Tolkien and #HLOTR.
I read The Hobbit about 5 years ago. I was taking the bus to work and though I often read books on the bus, I don’t think I ever wanted the ride to be longer than when I was reading The Hobbit.

2. Why are you reading or rereading it now?
I really enjoy readalongs for one. For another, LOTR is one of my sister’s favorites and I have had to hear about it all these years. Finally, I may understand the big deal 🙂

3. Have you learnt Elvish? Or read any other Tolkien books?
No other Tokien books.
And, no, I do not know Elvish, but I like maps. I loved the maps in The Hobbit, so I am hoping for more in LOTR!

Do I get extra points that this has been on my desk for ages?!!
