      You're jealous of the books, I'm jealous of the cats. We have more books
      than that but then, we're old.

          The last time I tried working my way through the LotR from the beginning, I
          set myself the difficult task of trying to introduce Dale to the story by
          reading it out loud to him--this was maybe two years ago. We were
          frequently making long drives to places like Gold Bar or Mt. Baker, which
          gave me the idea of passing the time by reading. But he couldn't follow,
          especially what with the irregular schedule of readings, and I gave up when
          Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli were still in Rohan. I think I might try again
          soon, with the idea that the films (which Dale liked much more than I did)
          have softened him up, so to speak.

          But that was hardly the last time I've picked the books up. I have a bad
          habit, when I feel like reading something at bedtime but don't feel like
          reading anything new, of grabbing a familiar book from the shelf and reading
          some chapter out of the middle of it. The LotR gets picked up most often.

          Cheers,

          Ernest.
