Beautiful books by The Folio Society! / The Silmarillion

Along with The Silmarillion - best. Series. Ever. Hands down. Hats off to you J.R.R Tolkien

Many people are disappointed when they try to read this as a narrative like LOTR. This is Tolkien's Mythology, equivalent in Middle Earth to Bullfinch or Edith Hamilton.

"We have sworn, and not lightly. This oath we will keep. We are threatened with many evils, and treason not least; but one thing is not said: that we shall suffer from cowardice, from cravens or the fear of cravens. Therefore I say that we will go on, and this doom I add: the deeds that we shall do shall be the matter of song until the last days of Arda." - Fëanor, Of the Flight of the Noldor - The Silmarillion

Tolkien's signature (now my Hobbit LOTR board is signed by J.R.R.Tolkien!) OMG

I wish they would incorporate this part into the last Hobbit, even though it's from Fellowship of the Ring
