Happy Birthday "The Lord of the Rings" Can't Post

Today marks the 60th Birthday of the first publication of "The Fellowship of the Rings".

Here is to Professor Tolkien! Smile

My life would have indeed been different, at the very least poorer, if this book wouldn't exist.

"I am afraid it is only too likely to be true what you say about the critics and the public. I am dreading the publication for it will be impossible not to mind what is said. I have exposed my heart to be shot at." J.R.R. Tolkien

We all have our hearts and minds one way or another invested in these books and movies. So we all mind and should show the necessary respect.
