About thirty - just LOTR, though. The Hobbit just a few, but could never bring myself to finish Silmarillion even once.
I'd love to re-read everything from The Sil, The Hobbit and LotR, but feel pressed to read a stack of other books that I've bought, and I can't seem to get enough reading time. Concentration is an issue, isn't it?
Yeah. Just can't get focused.
I think it's menopause frankly. I blame everything on that! As for dropping stuff, are you troubled with arthritis? Have you looked into getting yourself a Kindle or one of those reading tablets? Mistress has one and just loves it!
I've got a neuro-impairment of unknown etiology that started with a tapping index finger about 2 years ago. I shake constantly now, and use a quad-cane so I don't fall. My handwriting has gone from very good to very poor, and I don't have much of a grip in either hand. I don't think Kindles would survive me for long. One slip and boom - byebye Kindle . I hope to get diagnosed this year. Apparently specialists in my area don't do that anymore; they just line up folks already notified for drug companies, so I have to go to Ohio State and be seen by students .
I have the DVDs of the BBC Radio version of LotR and just love listening to it when I'm busy in the kitchen. Of course, they don't read every word of the books, but it's still a good enactment!
I think that's what I'll do. God, I miss the books though. When I could read I would hear the actors' voices in my head, even if they never said those lines in the films, I heard them. It was pretty sweet .
