Since 1998, the simple goal for this 'unofficial' homepage for "The Lord of the Rings," by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, is to encourage readers of all ages to take a journey to Middle-earth.
To best achieve this goal, I feel the best use for this site, is to carefully research the currently available editions of Tolkien's works, as well as guides, essays, and other related educational material, sort them all out into the sections listed on the right, hopefully making it as easy as possible to find these books, so that people can experience the peerless masterworks of J.R.R. Tolkien.
If you have yet to read one of Tolkien's books, then I invite you to order a copy of Ballantine's popular Boxed 'Paperback' Collection of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings." You will join millions of people, from all over the world, who have been changed forever by taking their first journey to Middle-earth.
Those who have already made the journey to Middle-earth, and hunger for more, you will enjoy reading "The Silmarillion," Tolkien's epic history of the First Age of Middle-earth, and "The Children of Húrin", the first complete book by Tolkien since the 1977 posthumous release of "The Silmarillion."
These digital versions of Tolkien's works can be read on personal computers, smartphones, or tablets, but I really feel they are best read on dedicated devices like the Kindle.

NEWS, REVIEWS, UPDATES
Outside of the truly important items of interest to Tolkien fans that I post here, I'll post other news, reviews, and announcements, on An Unofficial Weblog for The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I've also setup a 'Twitter' and 'Facebook' page where I'll post news and announcements to as well.
We're also proud to be the host of The Tolkien Forum. Founded in 1998, it is now one of the Internet's oldest message boards dedicated discussions and deliberations about the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.
