61. I was a bit ticked that they left out the Scouring of the Shire
but, all in all, I thought it was a pretty impressive feat.

Course, I'm not a purist. You want pure, read the books again.

I've read them so many times I can't even stand the thought, starting in 3rd Grade and god only knows how many times since then.

I shudder to think.
