A long time ago (a couple of months, maybe
) I made a post in the New Members thread saying hello. But then I more or less disappeared. Now I'm back though, and I hope to stick around a bit longer, so I thought I would say hello again.
Anyway, I'm a student living in the U.S., I've been obsessed with The Lord of the Rings and Middle-earth in general to varying degrees for the past five years or so, and I like discussing it with other people, which is largely why I sought out other fans on the internet.
LOTR is probably my favorite Tolkien book, though I like just about all of them. Children of Hurin I'm not so keen on (tragedy isn't quite my thing), and the History of Middle-earth, while enjoyable, is not something you read like a finished story. Unfinished Tales I find much easier to get through though.
As you have probably guessed by now I have a tendency to ramble.
Because of that I will simply end now with that Hello again!
