And the winner is . . .
Sep 07th, 2010, 12:53am
 
JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. While this is no real surprise, it does say something about the longevity and continuing popularity of this amazing series. I'll never forget when I was first introduced to this work: as a Sophomore in High School in 1964 (!) That's right. I read it BEFORE it was cool. Since then, I have read these three books more often than I've read anything else.

And that's another telling attribute of this seminal tale: virtually everyone who has read it has read it more than once. Think about that. With all of the hustle and bustle of modern living, all of the other venues for pastimes, all of the other worthy contenders for our reading moments, we choose to re-read this sometimes clumsy, often pedantic, obviously alegoric (but don't tell JRR that), wondrously entertaining series of books.

As we used to say in the 70s: Frodo Lives! And the books he's in are anotherealm's champion series of all time.

Thanks to all who participated!
