Pipe I am Amazed.

I find it fascinating that every time I login there are more users signed up for this forum.Isn't that cool.It has a lot to do with the movies I'm shure,but thats ok I think,becuase that means more people are likely to read the books.I would encourage people to read more than just LOTR.Tolkien wrote many story and if you look hard enough you can find them.What are your thoughts on this.

My thoughts would direct your fingers to the Space Bar. Otherwise I agree.
Fantasia is with you in your heart.
It is the story of which we are a part.

Agree to, I myself read the book coz of the movie (hate seing a movie wich is made from a book without reading the book). I had a really old book by Tolkien, wich isn't LotR related actually, at home for years, without reading it, until the movie came.
I may not agree with a word you say,
but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

I didn't read the book because of the movie actually (I usually hate watching movies that I read the books to. They usually make me really dissapointed in the movie) I actually read the books because of this forum. I found that since I hadn't read the books, I wasn't able to participate on the forum as much as I wanted to, because half the time I didn't know what they were talking about! So I read the books and now I'm able to particpate as much as I want here. Anyway, I also found that the movie LOTR is pretty accurate to the book LOTR, and I'm not dissapointed at all.

If I could be anything, I'd be your tear, so I could be born in your eye, live down your cheek, and die on your lips.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all that wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
