My Mailbox [1]

This week I have two new books to show off! Can't believe it's going to be a whole week since ALA Midwinter - time sure flies! 
While I don't have 70 new books to show off, I do have two pretty awesome ones that I'm excited to add to my shelves:

For Review
Above World - Jenn Reese 
^ special thanks to Jenn Reese & Candlewick! 

Look at this! LOOK! It's the complete Lord of the Rings trilogy in one super-volume! Just how Tolkien would've wanted it. He always intended for the story to be one  [massive] volume, so I just had to add this to my collection (plus it was cheaper than buying each of the three books separately). And it even has a concordance in the back! I don't think I've seen any book, apart from the Bible, that has a concordance. That is LEGIT.
So what did you all get this week?

I bought a complete volume back in 2002 or 2003 when the movies were hitting theaters. I love it but it is heavy (to hold) for casual reading or tossing it into a bag to take on a trip. I am thinking of purchasing it on my Kindle too since it is one of my favorite books. What I do like about mine is that it has cover images from the movies. I also love the extra notes. I don't know if mine has a concordance but it does have a timeline and information about what happens after the story ends.

Above World looks exciting! And I can't let my best friend see that Lord o' the Rings. He'd go ape. You def scored!

Nice! I've got a box set of the LOTR paperbacks, but this one looks gorgeous! Enjoy!

Ooh, I like the look of the big volume of all three books for The Lord of the Rings. Above World looks cool, too!

Happy reading, Amelia! :)

Lord of the Rings is one of the series that started me on my bookish ways! That goes on my To Buy list.
