    Ummm...Bree, where else?
    I found this on the newstand last night.
    Mostly pictures and most illustrations are from the movies so I didn't get it.

    So it's a bait and switch? Cover pic of JRRT, the tease of the Tolkien Society, Celebrating Tolkien's "greatest" characters, a new FA tale... but all movie...and all for only $10.99. <sigh>

    Well, there is some not movie related, like mention of Tolkien and The Great War, other books, etc, but all the photos from the movies puts me off.

    It's sort of like when I was very young and went to see The Reptile, a movie that kept me from sleeping for about 3 days.
    When my brother's Castle of Frankenstein came that had a head shot of the the Reptile inside the front cover it was a year before I could look at it without turning the first page at the same time I opened the cover. LOL
    Not that I'm scared of the Jackson's movies, but... :D
