in reply to The sort of fiction you're most likely to find me reading:

I generally try to read the LoTR trilogy once a year, and have managed to read some of the other books listed on the poll (Harry Potter, Foundation (all 5)). I also enjoy Tom Clancy, Mercedes Lackey, and R.A. Salvatore.

    I remember reading somewhere on a Tolkien trivia site that Christopher Lee likes to read LOTR once a year also. Apparently he's the only member of the LOTR cast to have actually met Tolkien in person.

      In the deluxe edition of the LoTR DVD set, there are two entire DVD's full of interviews with crew and cast of the movie. And Christopher Lee does mention that he reads the trilogy at least once per year, although I didn't know he had actually met Tolkien.

    I'm so glad someone else does this. I re-read LoTR without fail every year. Same with Dune (all of those by the original author, I'm not interested in subsequent publications by his son). Same with HHGTTG. Same with Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" every Christmas morning. I love the fact I get so many re-reads out of books - I'm not one of these people who reads them once and never again. If you don't go back to your books and re-read them you miss so much! Still to this day, every time I read HHGTTG I find a sentence or something that I've just never seen/fully appreciated before... Books for me are real value for money :)
