so looking forward to that as I so love the original movies. I have read the books every year since I was very little.

So excited that Sylv McCoy is in it too! Anyone know what role he is playing?

hey Lurker,

Yes every year since I was about 5 or so I have made a point of reading LOTR, Hobbit and Silmarillion every year. I just love that world. I have the audio books of all three on my Ipod along with dramatised versions of LOTR and Hobbit from the BBC, so I often listen whilst I am working too.
