It's kind of a tiny thing, but I finally started reading JRR Tolkien's books today. For some reason I could never get past the opening lines of The Hobbit, or whatever sort of 'cuteness' (Bleargh!) I thought I saw in it. I was determined, however, since I've really enjoyed the first two LOTR films, and am currently about half way through the book. (Rainy days ARE good for some things that don't involve getting wet, lol!)
Just think: I've managed to find a 'new' author, who's written a good many books. Yay!
If you haven't seen the film of The Two Towers, by all means, GO!
