Tolkien Collection Haul: April-June 2016

I almost forgot to do this post! For some reason I thought April-July was three months, can’t tell you why I had that brain fart. The past few months have been very good to my collection, especially the book portion of it! Like I said in an earlier haul post, one day I’ll figure out how to nicely display everything but today is still not that day. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tolkien Collection Haul: January-March 2016

Here’s everything I added to my Tolkien Collection since the beginning of the year! I didn’t include anything I got in New Zealand because it would have been too much work to get everything out again. But if you want to know what I bought during my trip, click here.

Tolkien Collection Haul: October-December 2015

It’s been about a year since I first started doing Tolkien Collection Haul posts! This haul is definitely a big one, and it’s mostly because I went a little crazy at New York Comic Con in October.

Tolkien Collection Haul: July-September 2015

July, August and September were pretty good to my Tolkien Collection! Got a nice mix of items, from books to a Gollum hat.


Here’s my first batch of books. Bought that copy of The Tolkien Companion by J.E.A. Taylor at a book sale over the summer, I want to say it was $2? Too bad there dust jacket is missing. I had a difficult time finding the ISBN, but inside it says PR6039.032Z49 1976 828′.9’1209 76-5203. I guess that’s it?

I bought the grey copy of The Lord of the Rings (ISBN 978-0-544-27344-3) at Strand for $9 which was like winning the lottery because the original list price is $30 (NYC book shops usually aren’t that cheap).

I actually got that copy of The Silmarillion First American Edition at a free book exchange! I love free books and I really love free Tolkien books. I already had a copy but this one is in MUCH better condition. Continue reading

Middle-earth News’ #TolkienCollection Challenge

Back in April I posted an article on Middle-earth News about our Tolkien Collection Photo Challenge.

I created the challenge because I wanted to give people an incentive to post more of their collections. It doesn’t matter what you own or how much you own, it’s all about Tolkien love! I would always silently complain over the lack of posts for that hashtag because I wanted to see some pretty photos of books and movie merch! But since the challenge went live people have been using the tag a lot! I finished it a while ago, you can find the photos on my Instagram or you can just keep scrolling down because I put them here too.

Tolkien Collection Haul: January-March 2015

At the beginning of this year I decided to do Tolkien haul posts every three months and the first one was for October-December 2014. Well, it’s been about three months so it’s finally time for another haul post! I surprisingly have a lot of stuff to show you guys, I didn’t expect this. Here’s a photo of everything:

Collection Wednesdays: February 18, 2015

This week I wanted to feature this cassette set of the BBC recording of The Lord of the Rings from the 80s. I think the coolest thing about this version is the fact that Ian Holm voices fro Frodo. 🙂

    My dad got this for me a couple years ago from Amazon or Ebay, not sure which. I don’t think it cost him that much, if you look these up they’re usually less than $20 USD. Though I no longer listen to cassettes, I still enjoy having this in my collection. I absolutely LOVE the lettering on the pamphlet and the map that is included.

There are a total of 13 cassettes and they all feature the same artwork, the one that’s featured on the top of the box. I believe the art is by The Brothers Hildebrandt. The box looks a little old but overall everything is in great shape!
