Last night I finally finished reading "The Lord of the Rings" by J. R. R. Tolkien. I had read "The Hobbit" when I was in high-school, but never got around to reading "The Lord of the Rings" until recent.
Actually, I had started it quite some time ago on one of my first business trips for McKesson, whom I work for now, but it was many, many months of very spare-time reading before I completed it.
Anyway...all this to say that it was a very worth-while read. I loved Peter Jackson's adaptation of the book into film. But the book is really wonderful. And anyone who is a fan of the movies really should read it. There are just so many things that Peter Jackson chose to leave out, change, expand, or skimp on.
SO...I encourage anyone...read this great story. Good stuff.
