Fantasy, and science fiction is something that I love to read, and watch. More so fantasy fiction than sci-fi. Naturally, and obiviously, The LoTR series is one my favorites. I mean, who doesn’t like LoTR, right?

And, unless you have read (almost) all the books that Mr. Tolkien has had published, on the topic of Middle Earth, and have a fabulous memory to boot, it’s kind of daunting to remember all the little bits of information about people, and places within the world of Middle Earth - it’s a long, long read.
