TTT Premiere Report: Taiwan - Xoanon @ 14:33 PST
Lucifer writes: On December 28, Fantasy Foundation gathered over 900 people to enjoy TTT in the biggest theater in Taiwan.

First we watched the blessing of ringers from other country: Forodrim Society from Sweden, DTG (Tolkein Society) from German, Jas from Olando Bloom Multimedia web site in Singapore, and Tehanu from TORN. Ringers in Taiwan are indeed much younger than other place, but we do share the same love with ringers all around the world.

Than, even it's six days earlier, we celebrated the 111th birthday of Mr. Tolkien. Everybody in the theater singed birthday song for him. Thanks for him to create such a fabulous world for us to wander in.......

It's a great event, we promised to held once more this year....^_^

Some other good news about LOTR: The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit are the No.1 bestseller of 2002 in Eslite(One of the biggest chain book stores in Taiwan). J.R.R. Tolkien is the bestselling foreign author of 2002 (also in Eslite).

Hobbit and the Fellowship of the Ring is the No. 1 and No.4 bestseller of 2002 in the biggest online bookstore www.books.com.tw.
