I have never read Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings". I have tried several times recently but have never gotten very far. I think the problem is that I am so Lord of the Rings-ed out between the new movies, the old movies, radio adaptations, and everything else, that I pretty much know the whole story even though I've never read the novels.
I feel bad about it! I am a major, MAJOR book worm (I read Greek mythology and I LIKE it!) and I feel like there's something wrong with me because I can't master something as simple and as well known as this story! I'll just have to try again, I guess... I have read and enjoyed "The Hobbit".
