I love Tolkien, still do.  I've read LOTR many times, the Silmarillion I
believe six times, plus all the volumes of the History of Middle Earth.  I
am overeducated, of course -- a classical education, at that. I guess it
follows that I'm one of those people who just follows blindly along popular
trends and never can see things in perspective, flooding 'best books' lists
mindlessly with my vote over and over.  :-)
