I've been a Tolkien fan since Legolas' actor was in diapers, and I used to play Elrond on TV. Er, I mean, on the LOTR Plaza, an enormous Lord of the Rings / Hobbit fan community.
Two bookshelves worth of Tolkien's Middle-earth books plus multiple copies of the films suggest that my condition is incurable.
"Anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom." (Prologue, The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien)
Some longtime Tolkien fans may recognize my old handle on the Lord of the Rings Plaza: Tinw Filigod.
