But which is your favourite volume??
When I was younger
I would not have believed them
though a hundred had said it
and a thousand tongues had told
that I would sink to these ways
that I would fall on these days--
the days I have fallen on
the ways I have sunk into.

Book 1, I love those early chapters, the tranquil magic of the shire slowly giving way to the terror of the blackriders, the mystery of old Tom and Aragorn's sudden entrance into the story, fantastic world building and a gradual pace that slowly ratchets up the tension yet lets you soak in the details of a sprawling world.
I wish I could read LOTR again for the first time, I didn't read the book properly till 2007, I have always been a reader but had never read anything of such complexity and length at the time, I had seen Jackson's LOTR multiple times by that point (but me being the weird guy that I am I had actually read some of ROTK already by that point) but Tolkien's prose and the expanded story hooked my straight away and I came to favour the novel long before my first readthrough was complete...
The Thorin: An Unexpected Rewrite December 2012 (I was on the money apparently)
The Tauriel: Desolation of Canon December 2013 (Accurate again!)
The Sod-it! : Battling my Indifference December 2014 (You know what they say, third time's the charm)
Well, that was worth the wait wasn't it
