Did you read the books before the movies were ever released?
Personally, I had read the books and been a fan for many years before the movies were released. I had practically grown up reading these books, as I read The Hobbit when I was very young, and just completely fell in love with it.
Shortly after, The Lord of the Rings followed, which just captured my imagination. I never, ever tire of reading those books.
There are always debates regarding books versus movies, and I am just curious to know, how many of you were already fans of Tolkien, or how many of you became fans after seeing the movies.
