Books About Tolkien Related Things

You can never have too many books about or written by Tolkien. You just can’t.

Here are some awesome books that I have—A Dictionary, and an Atlas. The third one (red cover) is one that I would like to get.

My question for You: Do you enjoy reading biographies?

  1. I enjoy some biographies. I need to be really interested in the person. I have been reading biographies of the royal ladies of England. I also have become very interested in history, something I never enjoyed when I was young.

  2. If it’s a biography of someone whose works I’ve read or whose life I’d like to know more about, then I’ll read it and likely enjoy it.
    I think the main ingredient for any biography-reading to be enjoyable is your own interest in the person the biography’s about. If it’s just some random biography you stumbled upon and said “Sure, why not read it?” and it’s about someone you know nothing about, I’d say you can possibly enjoy it by its end but you’re more likely to if you have some knowledge of the person the biography’s about.
    I purchased a Tolkien biography but I haven’t started reading it yet but I got it because I have an interest in things pertaining to Tolkien, his works, as well as Lewis and the Inklings and other writers I’m familiar with. I’d buy their biographies too because learning something new about them, their lives, their works, to me would be enjoyable.
    That’s my opinion/answer.

    1. I like that way of thinking!!! I would really like to read a biography on Alexander Hamilton. A lot of people are freaking out over the new(ish) musical, and I really like some of the music, but I also love the story and the lessons that come with it, so I may be reading that some time soon.

      1. Read it while you still “would really like to” because you may lose interest in the future and may miss out on reading something that could be insightful, informative or just enjoyable.
        But in selecting biographies also exercise discernment, making sure you’re not getting a biography written by someone who has their own agenda (prejudice or bias) against the person they’re writing the biography about. I’d think such biographies are rare and exposed for their bias or prejudice but you can’t be too careful.
        Best to avoid such poor excuses for biographies if you stumble upon them.
        Anyway, I hope your “‘may be reading that some time soon.” will prove enjoyable, informative, insightful, as far as a biography can be.

      1. They are really enjoying it! We have a map of middle earth that we set out on the kitchen table, and a friend of mine, who paints miniatures, has gifted us all of the main characters, to place on the map – which helps keep track of all the narratives. I’m torn between Fellowship and Return of the King as my faves. The children say they love the Ents best of all 🙂
