There’s been complaints from South American Ringers about the lack of interest shown in LOTR by the mainstream media – but Dunadan wrote in with some news today:
“This week’s Brazilian edition of the ‘Época Magazine’ brings a cool report about the re-edition of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ books. It also brings something about Tolkien and his books, and the influence he has over other writers like J. K. Rowling. At the end of the article there’s some information about the movie production and Peter Jackson.
In the same page of this article, there is a ranking for the best sellers in Brazil. Tolkien’s ‘Fellowship of the Ring’ is 10th place! “
Brazilian fans can visit Pelennor.com for more info! Cheers!”
