A Finnish guy.
Me likes genealogy and languages. All the details. See my contributions.
I started reading LoTR in 1999 after my friend recommended it. After six days I turned the last page of the book. Today, eight years late, I'm 18 years of age, and I've read all of published Tolkien except the Letters (and the new Narn). On almost a daily basis I take a Tolkien book randomly from my bookshelf and read maybe ten, mayeb fifty, maybe two hunderds pages of it. Yet, I read more other books than I do read Tolkien. Reading is one of my main free-time activities among studying Japanese, cycling and going to walk in the surrounding forests. And huge forests they are, for I live in Finland, renowned from its thousands of lakes and enchanting, beautiful, endless forests.
