    You're right. I always get that mixed up because of the Adventures of Tom Bombadil where he mentions the Shire and Hobbits. My favorite character from the books and grossly under represented. The Ring apparently has no effect on him and he was around before Sauron came to Middle Earth.

    I thought the movie was good. I just don't know everything about it like you all do.

    No. He wrote the Hobbit in 1937 and then later wrote the LOTR's from 1937-1949. It wasn't published until the '50's though. The whole concept started with the Silmarillion in 1914 though.

    I meant Aragorn. I always wondered who "sent" the Istari, or Wizards and why are only three of the five ever mentioned?

    I've never even heard of the Silmarillion. Interesting. I didn't realize the books were so old.

    The Valar sent the Istari.

    I just read the LOTR's trilogy again a few weeks ago. I probably know way too much. I even read all the histories in the appendix and the family trees...

    She is mentioned in the Hobbit and according to what I've read she'll appear with the White Council (as she should) which was only mentioned in the Hobbit.

    No. They were a different species altogether with totally different lifespans (and from different ages).
