Hi guys, just thought I would say hi. My name is James and I am 24 and from the UK. Tolkien was something of an obsession for me in my teenage years (I read LOTR 9 times in a row when I was 13!). I have kinda neglected it for a few years now (I blame the ale and pipeweed!!), hope to hang out here and have a few discussions. I am afraid I have never tried to learn any of Tolkiens languages, I struggle enough with English!! I have read everything on Middle-Earth apart from the histories of middle-earth, I started to read them but found the alternative narratives a bit disturbing!
