One of the many things I’m loving so far are the details we learn, such as Bilbo and Frodo share a birthdayBTW, be sure to share your impressions It's always good to get fresh perspectives.
Yeah, the films got me into the Tolkien legenderiumHa! Never thought of it that way -- probably because, when I first read Tolkien, there was no such thing as a "website".
Well, enjoy digging through the old threads here; there have been some deeply knowledgeable people posting over the years -- and still are.
But take your time; lots of spoilers, if you're reading LOTR for the first time.
Of course, you've undoubtedly seen the movies, in which case, the only "spoilers" you'll encounter will likely be those that spoil the films for you.
Sounds like a familiar story.I first read The Hobbit in 8th grade, when I guess I was around 13 and read LOTR immediately after. I read the SIL when the paperback was first published in the USA (yes I'm old). I bought The Unfinished Tales when it was first published also.
I've been buying the Tolkien calendars since the 70's (still have them) with the Hildenbrandt Brothers and Lee and Howe. My son still buys me one every Christmas.
I probably read LOTR over 25 times (lost count) and pick it up to read favorite passages here and there countless times. Like Gilgaearel, I saw the animated film in the movie theater!!!
