Lisa, that's a brilliant idea to buy kindle versions of LOTR and the rest... not only have I completely worn out 2 full sets and now have my third--a pretty edition I don't want to destroy!--but they are such heavy books they are hard on my hands.

I read and re-read the Hobbit and LOTR in particular so many times from upper elementary school to high school that I literally had it memorized... I decided I needed to take a break when I realized I wasn't actually reading the book any more but mentally remembering it whileI turned the pages. Even though I hadn't opened a copy of the Hobit for probably 20 years when I saw the movie, I still remembered it so well I could tell every time the spoken text at the beginning of the Hobbit movie describing the Bagend differed from the original text...and what the wording should have been. Still, I reread the Hobbit and once I'm done with Grad school I think it'll be time to re-read the Lord of the Rings.

I cannot tell you how many times I've read The Hobbit and LOTR. I don't remember how many worn out copies I've replaced. I'm about ready to buy them in kindle format so I don't have to keep replacing them (though I would NOT get rid of the hard copy!).

But I have never been able to get through The Silmarillion.....

Anyone else so afflicted? LOL!
