A Bit of Bookishness

Saturday, October 25, 2008

This isn't a post about LOTRO. Rather it's about LOTR... no O. I recently acquired (reminds me I still need to pay for) the 50th anniversary hardbound edition of The Lord of the Rings. Being a LOTR nut, I was quite pleased with the purchase, to say the least. Here are some pics.

The Book and Box
Can't Forget The Map

So, pretty cool. This is one of those books that stays on the shelf. I already have a paperback set of the three books in good condition so... when I read through the stories again, those will be used. It almost makes me sad that I don't want to read through this one. But, it is like a collectors piece. Even if it's not worth a whole lot of money post-purchase, it's representative of a fond piece of literature. And there's nothing like a good hardbound boxed book to do it.
