I wanted to let you know that in my hometown of Peterborough, Canada, I am taking 5 week university course on lotr at Trent University! Its a non credit course availible to any who might like to go. It started last tuesday and goes for five weeks until dec 11th. This past session we learned about the origin of many of the key names in the books, aragorn, eomer, eowyn etc. It was really cool and interesting. I think you can still sign up for it.
