I'm a huge dork
I just finished reading all four Lord of the Rings books again. And I still loved them, and couldn't put them down. Oh, I should also mention that I've read them at least 5 times. I'm sure it's more. Anyway.
Erick laughs at me, but there are worse things I could be doing, right? I just can't help myself.
It's also interesting to compare them to the movies, now that I've seen the extended editions of all three of those. Let me say, Tolkein did a MUCH better job on the ending of Return of the King than Peter Jackson did. I'm sorry, but the ending of that movie just sucked. All those hobbits jumping on the bed, then those 3 or 4 false endings. No, just no.
