Gimli does not have a Scottish accent.
I hope that knowledge doesn't drive the Gimli fangirls to suicide, because we know how said girls love the accent. (It does suit him, though. Don't you think?)
I also have The Hobbit around here somewhere, so that will be next.
You're probably wondering what's 'low brow', if Tolkien is as snooty as I get (which is actually pretty snooty). Well, I'd say Michael Crichton, Lisa Kleypas, Stephen King, maybe some odd Gothic novels thrown in. And chick lit. I LOVE finding decent chick lit. It's honestly like an adventure. I almost get the urge to pull on a pair of riding boots and a cape. Digging through tall stacks of pink covers with snarky titles and even snarkier heroines - pure bliss, right?
To go with my current classy tastes:
