Lord of the Rings Trilogy for Christmas

My nephew is a book lover. In fact, he's a 12-year-old bibliophile. Since he also loves video games and sports, I'm thrilled that he displays a sincere love of reading and books. He gets it honestly, he's from a long line of bookworms and bibliophiles but still, it's awesome that we're passing this passion for books along to the youngest generation of our clan.

I love it that I'm not buying him a video game or a DVD. No, I'm giving him books for Christmas. Not just any old books, I'm giving him a cherished box set of J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings trilogy. This set originated with my dearly departed Uncle, was passed along to me, and now I'm joyously passing it along to my nephew this holiday season. It seems right.



Talk to me.
