J.R.R. Tolkien Birthday Anniversary!

The Lord of the Rings ranks as one of the best-selling novels of all time, while first editions of The Hobbit have been rated among the most expensive of the 20th Century. With such a high demand and popularity for Tolkien’s works – it’s no surprise why enthusiasts would be more than happy to see more books released.

Author John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born January 3, 1892. Tolkien is such a prolific author that, 45 years after his death (1973), he is still providing us with publications that sell in their tens of thousands.
