If I hadn‘t already read more than halfway through Christopher Tolkien‘s Histories of Middle Earth, I might have enjoyed this more...but because I did, this seemed a bit off and repetitive in parts, and very oversimplified in others.
I did enjoy the brief overviews and artist renderings though.
Here‘s a good example @JazzFeathers The story tidbit is very short and simplified, so after reading the Silmarillion it‘s definitely not much for Tolkien purists I‘m sure, but for me since I‘ve already read the details, it‘s enough of a reminder... and pictures done by various artists i‘m finding interesting.
Up next for me! I‘m going to peruse this book and it‘s stunning artwork as I continue to work my way through The Letters From Father Christmas through this holiday season 😊

Our family celebrated Christmas a bit early this year because my sister @CaitMobley and her family will be out of town. These were two gifts I received from my mom. They are leather bound 😍 Now I feel like I can finally tackle Tolkein...thanks to @Ambrosnazzy who originally posted about these, as they were quickly added to my Christmas list! #booksfromliberty
