Happy Birthday, Professor Tolkien!

In honour of Professor Tolkien's birthday, I began my annual re-reading of The Lord of the Rings today. I also noticed that Marcel of the German Tolkien Society launched a new Twitter/Instagram trend, #Tolkienbookselfie, and so I thought I'd participate:

These are my two favourite copies of The Lord of the Rings - the 50th anniversary edition (cover illustration by Alan Lee), which I found in a local mom & pop bookstore, and the copy I picked up at Super Mega Fest (cover illustration by Donato Giancola).

Thanks, Professor, for everything.

How are you celebrating the Professor's birthday?
