OK -- three months is long enough, I think, to wait. In the absence of elronds_daughter I shall ask a question:

Which saint did Tolkien take as his patron and why?

(This one is remarkably easy, but I hope that will get this thread moving again.)

St. John, because Tolkien was born on the Octave of this particular saint

right ?

Acctualy i don't know that much about the man him self, so I am having trouble finding a great question.

Anyway here goes: To whom did Tolkien first read Lord of the Rings ?
