Hi there my geeks! I’m really excited to share this book set that I found a little while ago at Books-A-Million. I love The Hobbit & the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I’ve been searching for a nice set for myself for a while now. So you can imagine my excitement when I found this little beauty when browsing around with the new BF (another post altogether 😉 ).
Isn’t it beautiful? The box and all four books are bound in what appears to be a faux leather of some kind. They’re so soft and smooth and comfortable to hold. And what’s more, they are perfectly sized to take around with you for reading on the go – though I won’t be doing any of that…I get carsick.
I just love finding little treasures like these, you never know when they’ll pop up in a random store one day (which I guess is probably part of the marketing plan). So I can’t resist grabbing them when I see them sitting so innocently on the store shelves, as if calling my name.
I was so happy to find these, and in fact I went back and bought 3 more sets! One each for my dad, sister, and younger brother. Obviously we are a little geeky in my family.
What about you guys? Have you ever been walking around and suddenly found something so perfect you couldn’t resist buying it?
