I finally came home from the city where I study (pause between exams) so I can show my modest collection of books by Tolkien:
All The Lord of the Rings books I received as a gift, and other three books I bought from one internet ads site. Books were in almost new condition and Unfinished Tales was brand new. One guy received it as a birthday present and wanted to get rid of it and I bought it from him for 50% of its price in a bookstore. Ah, yes all books are in Croatian language.
I was thinking about buying The Children of Húrin but I’m not quite sure... If it repeats most of the text from Silmarilion and Unfinished Tales word for word then I really don’t see the point. If the content is the same but retell the story differently, with more details than maybe I will buy it. I would like any opinion about that please. I also plan to buy The letters of J.R.R. Tolkien and The Atlas of Middle-Earth by Fonstad in nearer future and The History of Middle-earth series in a future with... well more money and free time.
I like The Silmarillion and The Hobbit covers. Is it Gondolin of the first; can’t be sure?
