And the claim to geek status only works if you read the books before you saw the movies. Before they were making the movies. Before you were in high school. And you had to walk uphill both ways barefoot through snow while reading them.

Sorry I didn't clarify. I have read the books, more than once, before I went to high school, including The Hobbit. Of course, I read them on the beach getting a tan, not walking in the snow.... I opted to reread them again to make a fresh comparison, thereby reinforcing the geek status Very Happy

Me, I made myself wait until after seeing each movie to re-read the book. Otherwise I knew I'd be sitting through the whole movie going, "Nope, that's different, that's different, should have had that in there, that's wrong..."
