Am I the only one who hadn't read LotR before seeing the movie? I re-read the Hobbit before I saw it (kinda...I got about 50 pages from the end and then went to see it and based everything after that on my memory).
See, I saw the movie and then read the Fellowship of the Ring. I decided that if I had read the book first, I would have not liked the movie as much (seen it 5 times and am trying to convince my mom to let me see it again). So I'm going to read each book after I see each movie.
That's not *too* weird, is it?
I mean, after that, I'm going all Ian McKellen and reading the entire LotR set every year, I promise.
