It's Tolkien. What else can I say. Some of you may remember that my bonus post last year was a reference to a Tolkien place or character with an accompanying video.
Wonderful stories with new places, a history, new cultures, new languages...what kind of genius does it take to make all this up? If the world were destroyed and these books survived, would a future generation thousands of years from now think it was really their past?
I kinda wish I still had my paperback editions of 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' so I would not mar the pages of the beautiful editions I now own. Oh well. There is always the local library if I want to re-read them - again - if I live long enough to read everything on the TBR list. I do want to re-read 'The Silmarillion', which I think I have only read once.
Have you read 'The Lord of the Rings'? Or 'The Hobbit'? Do you have books that you re-read? More than once? (I knew an attorney who read 'The Lord of the Rings' every few years.)
