    ^^^ Wierd Just finished the "Fellowship" for the umpteenth time which Tray thinks is strange behaviour, I think it's about the best form of escape there is. About to start "Two Towers".

    Nothing wrong with that Sox, I get something out of LOTR every time I read them...must have read them well over 20 times in my lifetime.

    I'll take some pictures of my editions, I wore out so many paperbacks I finally bought a set that will outlive me for sure.:grinthumb

    I've read the majority of Stephen King's books ( including the Richard Bachman titles ) and I own about half of them. I think once you start you'll get hooked. Some of my favorites are The Stand, The Shining, It, The Talisman ( with Peter Straub), Insomnia...if you like sci-fi type stuff you might try The Tommyknockers.

    In high school I took a class called Individualized Reading where we just read books and did book reports. I read every Alistair MacLean book they had...always good, fast-paced stories.

    I am trying to read and understand a knitting pattern :heheh: I taught myself the basics and knitted a wooly hat and scarf for the winter but now I am attempting a sweater and I am having difficulties following the instructions. My male housemate (who is not gay) is a fabulous knitter :D He also made the curtains for my bedroom! He is going to make a lucky woman a fantastic husband one of those days!

    I think it's cool myself! Not my thing but with my music taste not being the most masculine at times I can relate to having interest outside what my gender is supposed to lean towards! :heheh:
