I joined up a month or too ago, but I had to wait until my finals were over until I had time to introduce myself. I am a 20 year old college student, who first got hooked when the movies came out. The movies were amazing! After they were all out I got the books of the Hobbit and the trilogy. I finished those fast and now this summer also finished the Silmarillion this summer.
I am completely addicted and love his work. I joke with my husband that some day, when I am up in heaven I am going to sit at the feet of Tolkien and listen to him tell stories forever! I am a devote Catholic, so I love the moral and theological value of his writings. I am currently enrolled to take a "Theology of Tolkien" class this spring at my college. I am really excited to take it.
Well, hopefully I will have time to visit often!
God Bless!

Welcome to PT, Benlea! Enjoy looking through the threads and getting to know the members of PT. We have a variety of members here -- those who hate the movies and those who love them, oh, we even have those who just "like" them. :) I enjoy the movies, but there are many things that drive me nuts when I watch them -- the portrayal of Faramir is the one that really gets me frustrated. I, too, am a college student writing my masters thesis on LOTR. See you around!

A great many welcomes to you, Benlea! I see you're like me and saw the movies before you read the books. It kinda makes you're opinion of the movies different. I've figured out that those who read the books first usually hate the movies, and those who saw the movies first, love the movies! Anyway, I apologize for rambling, its always nice to see new faces around PT, and I hope you get to check in often!

I better say something quick, before you get the impression we're all vampires here...

You can do many things here on PT. If you have that everlasting Tolkien fire burning inside you, then you can always join in the discussions about the books and charaters and such... and if you just love the movies, then head over to the movies section (which is pretty stale now) and liven things up a bit.

Of course, if you just feel like relaxing, then the Taverns are always open for entertainment!

Welcome to Planet Tolkien, Benlea. I hope you enjoy yourself here.

We like new blood...

Don't worry about, Vee. Her teeth are sharp but we keep her on a tight leash.
