Happy Birthday!

On this day in 1892 John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born and what a gift to the world of fantasy his birth was to us all.

I have read The Lord of the Rings Trilogy so many times I have lost count, in fact at one point, I read it every year without fail. It is my favourite trilogy and I doubt that will ever change. I also collect different editions of the trilogy from the very expensive to the cheap paperback, I have a dream of owning a signed first editon but that is definitely a dream as I will never be wealthy enough. In fact I collect anything Tolkien!

I also love the Peter Jackson films of The Lord of the Rings but sadly I did not appreciate what he did with The Hobbit. 

Thank you Tolkien for giving us the gift of Middle Earth and all your other wonderful worlds.

“One ring to rule them all, One ring to find them, One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”
