        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.
